Lancashire Lightning’s Vitality Blast fixtures confirmed

Lancashire Lightning’s Vitality Blast fixtures confirmed

Lancashire Lightning’s Vitality Blast fixtures have been confirmed this summer with Glen Chapple’s side starting with an away fixture against Durham at Emirates Riverside on Thursday 27 August.

The Vitality Blast has been regionalised into the same three groups used in the Bob Willis Trophy with each county set to play 10 group-stage matches. The quarter-finals will all be played on Thursday 1 October.

The opening Vitality Blast Roses fixture will be played at Emerald Headingley on Monday 14 September before the home fixture against Yorkshire Vikings at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday 17 September, which will be televised live on Sky Sports.

The fixture schedule for the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy were also published today with the final of the women’s 50-over competition to be staged on Saturday 26 September. The Thunder (North West Region) fixtures can be viewed here.

The Club continue to work closely with the ECB and UK Government to welcome fans back safely to enjoy live domestic cricket at Emirates Old Trafford and out grounds, however following the current UK Government guidelines, the upcoming Lancashire Cricket fixtures, including the recently announced Vitality Blast matches, will currently be played behind-closed-doors. Our aim is to provide access to as much domestic cricket as possible for all Members and should the current position change we will contact all Members with a further update. 

ECB Chief Executive Officer, Tom Harrison, said: “After a challenging few months it’s really exciting that we can look forward to three domestic finals at the end of the summer. It promises to be a thrilling climax to the season, and something members, fans and everyone involved in the game can look forward to.

“The prestige of a Lord’s final for the Bob Willis Trophy will provide an even greater incentive for the First-Class Counties, and it’s pleasing to see so many people watching the high-class entertainment via the enhanced live streams the counties have invested in. Finals Day at Edgbaston will also ensure the men’s county cricket finishes the season on a high.
