Match preview

By Dave Wright

Waqas Hussain is named in a much-changed Berkshire side for their two T20 Group 2 games against Herefordshire at Eastnor on Sunday, starting at 11am.
The all-rounder will be making his first appearance of the season, having recovered from the serious facial injuries he suffered in an accidental clash of heads with team-mate Sam Burgess during a pre-season training session.
Joe Cracknell, a Middlesex Academy batsman, is included for the first time, while Reading's Sukhi Kang will keep wicket.
Jack Davies and Ethan Bamber have Middlesex commitments, while Stewart Davison, Dan Lincoln and Joe Thomas are also unavailable.
Berkshire, looking to bounce following their Unicorns Trophy defeat by Devon last weekend, go to Eastnor as the Group 2 leaders following five wins and one defeat.
They are two points better off than Herefordshire and Buckinghamshire (who play Shropshire at Whitchurch) with a vastly superior run-rate - 2.1580 compared to Herefordshire's 1.0085 and Bucks' 0.0201. In fact, Berkshire boast by some distance the best run-rate of every team in all four groups, so even one victory on Sunday should see them finish top and qualify for Finals Day.
"Yes, one win may be enough but we are don't intend taking any chances and the aim is to win both games," says captain James Morris.
And head coach Tom Lambert describes it as an "exciting day ahead as we look to qualify for another finals day at Wormsley in late August."
