I'm struggling to get that excited about it really. Quite a dull set of teams. There's no underdog to cheer for, no Westcountry interest and 3 teams (Lancs, Warwcks and Surrey) who I just don't like because of their history of poaching players on such a large scale.
T20 is a crapshoot - any of those sides could win it, I just hope Surrey and KP's ego don't.
A decade of failure for Warwickshire at Twenty20 cricket was all forgotten in the space of one memorable day at Edgbaston as the Birmingham Bears brilliantly put their name on the T20 Blast trophy.
The Edgbaston marketing men had good cause to rub their hands, count their pounds and pennies and say "job well done" as the rebranded Bears finally brought home the bacon - and all on home soil too, in front of an adoring capacity 25,000 crowd.
Birmingham Bears made home advantage count as they beat Lancashire by four runs at Edgbaston to win the T20 Blast.
Andrew Flintoff dismissed Ian Bell with his first delivery, but Laurie Evans hit 53 off 30 balls, including four sixes, to see the home side to 181-5.
Karl Brown made 55 in Lancashire's run chase, only for seamer Oliver Hannon-Dalby (3-31) to check their progress.
Flintoff hit two successive sixes in an unbeaten 20, but lost the strike in the last over as Lancashire ended on 177-8.
