The Finals’ Day, last held at Edgbaston in 2004, promises to be a cracking day jam-packed with action and excitement both on and off the field. The compact nature of this format means spectators will be treated to 3 matches in one day and no doubt England’s finest players will take centre stage!

The 4 teams who will compete for the illustrious Twenty20 Cup will be decided on 18th July when the counties go head to head in the Quarter-Finals.

Last year’s winners, the Leicestershire Foxes, promise to be tough opponents but with Warwickshire’s new recruit, “Mr Twenty20”, Darren Maddy, the Bears will be hoping to secure their first trophy in a Twenty20 campaign on their home turf!

Darren is looking forward to the challenge of Twenty20, “It is an exciting format of the game and my success in previous years only makes me more hungry to repeat it and bring the Twenty20 Cup home for the Bears. Watch out for us we will be ready for battle!”
