The 2017 edition of the competition saw Worcestershire win the North Group with 13 points from their eight games, while Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire also qualified for the knock-outs by finishing second and third respectively.
In the South Group, Essex topped the table with 14 points, losing just a game, while Somerset and Surrey followed close on their heels.
Nottinghamshire overcame Somerset in a very high-scoring quarter-final that saw them defend 429 by 24 runs only while Surrey edged out Yorkshire to make the semi-final where they played Worcestershire and Leicestershire.
Surrey crushed Worcestershire while Nottinghamshire won another run-filled game against Essex to enter the title-decider. The Notts registered the title win on the back of an Alex Hales’ unbeaten 187 that helped them chase down 297 with ease.
The tournament started in 2014 with the England and Wales first-class counties participating in it. It replaced the ECB 40 tournament which ran from 2010 to 2013. The number of overs was increased to 50, in line with the One Day Internationals format.
Each team will face the remaining eight teams in its group in a round-robin league format. Thus every team will play eight matches in the round-robin stage with each team playing four matches at home and four away. The draw for home and away matches is also done randomly.
After the completion of the round-robin league format, the top four teams from each group will qualify for the next round of matches which will take place in a knock-out format.
The top-placed team in each group will face the fourth-placed team of the other group, while the second-placed team in a group will square up against the third-ranked team of the other group in four quarter-final lineups.
The winners of the quarter-final matches will face off against each other in two semi-finals with the winners of these matches meeting for the championship in the final. The final will be played at The Lord’s in London.
