Somerset's challenge for a first ever County Championship title resumes on Sunday with a trip to Edgbaston to take on Warwickshire.

The match falls in the midst of a hectic T20 schedule but head coach Jason Kerr is not overly concerned by the crossover.

"I think everyone is used to it by now," he said.

"The rain this week has given us a chance to go inside and do some red ball preparation and I have every confidence we will adapt."

The match will see a Championship debut for Babar Azam, who will replace his compatriot Azhar Ali.

Ali has since been recalled by Pakistan for a national squad training camp and Somerset are on the lookout for a replacement overseas player for their final three Championship matches in September.

Dom Bess will be available at Edgbaston following his T20 loan at Yorkshire, which has seen him take four wickets in six matches with an economy rate of 8.70.

Lewis Gregory (foot) is the only injury absentee for Somerset, who go into the match four points behind leaders Essex.

Both sides have four matches to play and face each other in Taunton in the final week of the season.

Hosts Warwickshire go into the match second bottom and in search of points as they look to avoid becoming the sole team to be relegated from Division One this season.

They have won two of their seven Championship matches this season and lost a low-scoring reverse fixture in Taunton by 49 runs in May.

Ian Bell is out for the season with injury but the home squad includes former Somerset batsman Adam Hose.

Somerset squad: Tom Abell (c), Babar Azam, Tom Banton, George Bartlett, Dom Bess, Jack Brooks, Steve Davies, Tim Groenewald, James Hildreth, Tom Lammonby, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton and Roelof van der Merwe.
