The Player's County League featuring today Northampton v. Worcestershire
In the opening matches of this competition a fortnight ago, both these sides were involved in tight finishes, Northamptonshire losing by only seven runs and Worcestershire by only five. With players of the calibre of Milburn, Prideaux, Goldstein, and Mushtaq Mohammed of Northamptonshire and Headley, Graveney, and D'Oliveira of Worcestershire, today's televised game could well produce another close finish.
The commentary team at the County Ground, Northampton: John Arlott, Peter West, Jim Laker
Today's other fixtures: Hampshire v. Gloucestershire, Kent v. Sussex, Lancashire v. Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire v. Warwickshire, Surrey v. Glamorgan
