Paul Harris will make his first-class debut for Warwick-shire tomorrow as the club resumes its Championship programme against Middlesex at Edgbaston.
The left-arm orthodox spin-ner, signed last week to bolster an injury-ravaged spin attack, will form a two-man spin attack with Alex Loudon.
Other interesting inclusions include Mark Wagh, who revitalised his season with an impressive display in the Twenty20 Cup, and Tim Ambrose, who wins another opportunity in the absence of the injured Tony Frost. Ambrose will bat at six, allowing Warwickshire to play four seamers. Middlesex are 31 points and two places below Warwickshire, in the second relegation position.
WARWICKSHIRE: N Knight, M Wagh, J Trott, A Loudon, J Troughton, T Ambrose (wkt.), D Brown, H Streak (capt.), P Harris, N Carter, J Anyon.
n Navdeep Poonia and Ian Westwood set up another victory for Warwickshire in the Second XI Trophy at Usk.
Poonia's 102 (120 balls) was the platform for Warwick-shire's daunting 303 for four from their 50 overs. He added 147 for the second wicket with Jim Troughton (70) before Luke Parker (44) and West-wood (35 not out) also contributed. Glamorgan collapsed to the left-arm spin of West-wood, who took five for 44.
Warwickshire play their final group match at Leamington Spa tomorrow, against Glamorgan, and a win would provide them with a good chance of progressing to the knock-out stages.
