What is the format for Finals Day?

Both semi-finals and the final itself are played on one day, with a full day of cricketing action taking place at Edgbaston. It’s a traditional format, whereby the winners of the two semis advance to the final later on Saturday.

Hampshire and Somerset will face off at the semi-final stage again after meeting at the same stage in 2021. Somerset won that game last year but fell at the final hurdle, losing out to Kent by 25 runs. Both Yorkshire and Lancashire were knocked out at the quarter-final stage in 2021, but one of those clubs will contest the final this year and hope to bring the trophy home to a side in the Northern Division for the eighth time in the last 10 seasons.

What weather can we expect on Finals Day?

The UK has been experiencing huge temperatures in recent weeks, and that should continue into the weekend with Edgbaston forecast to see highs of 27°. There is a less than 1 per cent chance of rain and, with a lack of rain in the days leading up to Finals Day, the groundskeepers will have their work cut out to ensure the pitch is in perfect condition.
