In April a year ago the 38 members of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) voted to approve plans for a new competition to run alongside the T20 Blast, which is contested by the 18 first-class counties.

Neil Snowball, Chief Executive of Warwickshire CCC, said: "This award of high profile matches is excellent news for everyone connected with Edgbaston Stadium and it provides us with a solid platform on which we can build a strong and sustainable financial future for Warwickshire County Cricket Club".
"Commercially, getting a franchise was absolutely key for us from this announcement, so we're focusing on the positive".
