Yorkshire’s Tom Kohler-Cadmore admits he is relishing the introduction of the ECB’s new city based T20 competition, starting in 2020.

News broke on Wednesday that Emerald Headingley has been awarded one of the eight franchises alongside the Ageas Bowl, Edgbaston, Kia Oval, Lord’s, Emirates Old Trafford, SSE Swalec Stadium and Trent Bridge.

At 23-years-old, Kohler-Cadmore is a player primed to take full advantage of the benefits of the new competition.

A young player with years ahead of him and a dynamic batsman ideally suited to Twenty20 cricket.

Earlier this winter, he took his first steps into the world of overseas domestic leagues when he travelled to the UAE to play in the inaugural T10 League alongside former White Rose overseas Sarfaraz Ahmed.

“For me, I think it’s brilliant because it puts you on the world stage,” said the former Worcestershire white ball opener.

“At the minute, because there’s so many games in our Blast, they aren’t all televised.
