The 2021 Vitality T20 Blast 2021 will start on June 9 with four games scheduled to be held on the opening day of the tournament. Here’s the full T20 Blast 2021 fixtures for the upcoming season.

The T20 Blast is one of the longest T20 tournaments, running for over two months every year. The 2021 edition will commence from June 9 with the Finals Day scheduled to be held on September 18 at Edgbaston. A total of 133 T20s will be played between 18 counties of England and Wales over the course of the next few months. The league stages have been divided into two divisions – the North Division and the South Division.

The opening day of the T20 Blast 2021 will see four fixtures – Lancashire will play the opener with Derbyshire while Worcestershire take on Nottinghamshire in the second match of the day. Somerset and Sussex will play the first game of the South Group, which will be followed by a match between Kent and Hampshire.

The last league game of the tournament will be held on July 18 with the quarter finals only commencing from August 24 as most players will be involved in The Hundred that is slated to be held from July 21.

Nottinghamshire will enter the T20 Blast as the defending champions after they defeated Surrey in the finals last year. Leicestershire are the most successful team in the history of the tournament, with three titles.
