Twenty20 Cup Performances

Warwickshire has a very consistent record in this tournament over the years, qualifying for at least the quarter finals every year with the exception on 2006. Unfortunately for them they appear to be incapable of winning a quarter final match, losing five times, including the last three years. They did make the final in the tournament's inaugural year of 2003 but were beaten by the Surrey Browncaps.

In the 2009 competition they were runners up in the now defunct Midlands Group, behind Northamptonshire. They won seven of their ten games and qualified to meeet Sussex in the quarter finals, a match they lost by 38 runs.

2009/10 Squad

The squad is made up from 23 players that include top England all batsmen Ian Bell and also the Twenty20 Cup's highest run scorer of 2009, Jonathan Trott.
