The Bears are set to feature six times on SKY SPORTS in 2014 as part of a new look domestic season that will feature every county live.

From May Sky Sports will show every county team live during the 2014 domestic season including the new Royal London One-Day Cup now played in a 50-over format, and the NatWest T20 Blast, the new name for the domestic T20 competition.
