MARK Wood will need to prove his fitness for Durham over the next three days before being considered for England's two one-day internationals against Ireland on Friday and Sunday.

Wood could be competing for a place with Liam Plunkett, who underlined his own recovery from injury with three wickets in Yorkshire's opening Royal London Cup win.

They will face each other at Headingley on Wednesday, but first Durham visit Edgbaston to play holders Warwickshire today.

Wood stood down from Durham's washed-out start against Derbyshire on Thursday because of a tight groin, allowing James Weighell to make his one-day debut.

Warwickshire began with a ten-wicket win at Northampton, where they eased to their revised target of 162 in 30 overs with Sam Hain making 89 and Ian Porterfield 62.

Both have been prolific one-day scorers against Durham, although Hain's century at South Northumberland last year proved in vain. All the Durham batsmen weighed in as they reached a target of 293 with four wickets and 14 balls to spare.

It was the second time Warwickshire have lost a 50-over match at the Gosforth ground and they were also Durham's victims when they won the trophy at Lord's three years ago.

But the Bears went on to win last year's final by nine wickets against Surrey and with Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott and Tim Ambrose in the middle order, backed by the all-round talents of Rikki Clarke and Jeetan Patel, they are a formidable line-up.

Having to settle for one point against Derbyshire leaves Durham on minus one ahead of two very tough games.

They are back at South Northumberland on Friday to face Leicestershire, followed by Northants at Emirates Riverside next Sunday.

Durham (from): K Jennings (capt), S Cook, M Richardson, G Clark, P Collingwood, C Steel, S Poynter, R Pringle, P Coughlin, M Wood, J Weighell, C Rushworth.
