Betting on Birmingham Bears
Birmingham Bears have secured the T20 Blast title once in their history. They bagged their first and only success in 2014 when beating Lancashire in that year’s final. The Bears used to be known as the Warwickshire Bears and are part of Warwickshire County Cricket Club. They play home games at Edgbaston Stadium, which is also used each year to hold the T20 Blast Finals Day. The closest they had come to winning the domestic T20 contest before 2014 was a runners-up place in 2003 in what was then known as the T20 Cup. Another runners-up spot followed in 2017 when they were edged out Notts Outlaws in the final.
The Bears will need to find a big improvement after failing to make it out of the group stages in the last tournament. Another thing to consider when looking to bet on the Bears is that they have failed to make it into the latter stages in three of the last four years. That is in contrast to their early tournament record when they seemed regulars in the quarter-finals without pushing on. However, a new captain in the form of overseas star Chris Green could mean new momentum at Edgbaston.
