The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has confirmed that this summer’s shortened domestic season will include a 50-over women’s competition in addition to the Bob Willis Trophy and Vitality Blast.

Fixtures for the Bob Willis Trophy were released today with all 18 First-Class Counties (FCCs) set to be in action when the one-off red-ball competition begins on Saturday 1 August.

The Bob Willis Trophy will hold first-class status, but is a separate competition from the County Championship, and will comprise three regionalised groups, consisting of six counties per group.

The FCCs will play five group-stage matches – one against each county in their group – with the two group winners with the most points set to progress to a five-day final.
