BERKSHIRE open their Unicorns Championship campaign with a game against Cornwall at Henley on Sunday.
They will be looking to get off to a winning start following their exit from the Unicorns Trophy, which saw the holders lose three of their four group games.
Team manager Jeff Jones said: “We are all disappointed about going out of that competition, but the three-day championship is completely different.
“We are confident we can get back to winning ways against Cornwall.”
The two counties met in the final game of last season at St Austell, with the Cornwall last-pair holding out for 50 minutes to force a draw.
