Dougie Brown believes history can repeat itself as Warwickshire bid for a second successive LV= County Championship title.

Brown was part of the team under Bob Woolmer which won the 1994 title and then again the following year when Phil Neale was in charge.

He has succeeded Ashley Giles as director of cricket at Edgbaston and believes he can guide the county to further success.

"It is really important we go out there to win the championship again," he said.

"In 1994-95 we changed from Bob Woolmer to Phil Neale as coach and won back-to-back championships. It can be done with the right structure and vision in place.

"The squad has enjoyed good preparation both at home this winter and latterly during our pre-season camp in Barbados."

His first challenge is the season opener against the MCC in Abu Dhabi starting on Sunday.

"MCC has selected a strong squad, so the match will be great preparation ahead of our championship programme," he added.
