Vitality T20 Blast 2020 full schedule and live-matches announced

Vitality T20 Blast 2020 Full Schedule:

Vitality T20 Blast 2020 Full Schedule: Keeping in line with the trend of cricket-comebacks, England’s premier T20 tournament, the Vitality Blast T20, is all set to resume from 27 August. However, under the ‘new-normal’ protocols, the league will experiment with several, interesting novel dynamics; in an attempt to maintain as much social-distancing as possible.

Each of the 18-counties will feature in across the three groups, North, South, and Central- based on their graphical-locations. This comes as a departure from the incumbent, 9-team-a-group, North and South division system, and follows a similar regionalization pattern to the teams in the Bob Willis Trophy.

Arguably the most prominent caveat about the 2020 T20 Blast, is that not every match will receive television coverage. Sure, every match will take place behind-closed-door stadiums; but it wouldn’t be practical to broadcast each of the 45, group-stage matches live. Broadcasters Sky Sports will live-cast 10 matches, featuring each of the 18-teams at least once. Headingley and Edgebaston will host three televised-games, Oval gets two, while Rose Bowl and Old Trafford get a single-game each. The non-televised games should get radio-coverage from local broadcasters. The official England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) website will release more information in the coming days.

Additionally, every knockout match (also-televised, venues undecided as-of-now) has been allocated reserve-days. It’s interesting to note that the English government expects the restraint on the mass-gathering situation to improve by that time, which could potentially see crowds making a comeback to the stadium. Not confirmed yet, but remains to be seen. Here’s the whole T20 Blast itinerary:

Groups

North: Derbyshire Falcons, Durham, Lancashire Lightning, Leicestershire Foxes, Notts Outlaws, Yorkshire Vikings

Central: Birmingham Bears, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Northants Steelbacks, Somerset, Worcestershire Rapids

South: Essex Eagles, Hampshire, Kent Spitfires, Middlesex, Surrey, Sussex Sharks
