Ian Bell, Captain of Birmingham Bears, said: “As a Bears fan growing up I came to several matches against Worcestershire, and it’s arguably the biggest rivalry in domestic cricket.

“Our NatWest T20 Blast meetings get great attendances and there’s always a fantastic atmosphere. As if bragging rights and group points weren’t enough, we now have the prestige of the new trophy, which we hope to lift for the first time at Edgbaston on 27 May.”
