Norfolk begin their Unicorns Minor Counties Championship season with the short trip to Wisbech to take on Cambridgeshire tomorrow.
The start of the three-day campaign follows a positive start to the season for Norfolk, after qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Unicorns Knockout Trophy one-day competition.
That takes Chris Brown's team away from home in the quarters for the fourth successive season, to Staffordshire on Sunday, June 12.
First up is the opening three-day match though, with Norfolk looking to improve on sixth place and winning just one of their three Eastern Division matches last season.
There are two changes to the team which lost to Cumberland by six wickets in the Knockout Trophy group decider at Fakenham last weekend.
