The 2021 edition of England’s premier domestic List A tournament, the Royal London One-Day Cup, started off on July 22 with an opening fixture between Group B rivals Glamorgan and Warwickshire.
Somerset, Surrey, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire are also part of the Group B of the competition. Group A features Worcestershire, Durham, Lancashire, Essex, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Sussex, Kent and Middlesex.
With most of the prominent English county clubs missing their best players because to the inaugural edition of The Hundred that is running concurrently and also the coming England-India Test series, this year’s Royal London One-Day Cup has seen under-strength teams going hard at each other.
The tournament follows a challenging format, with teams playing four home and four away fixtures in the initial round. Top teams from respective groups at the end of the first round will enjoy a direct entry to the tournament semi-finals. They’ll face the winners of the two quarterfinals that will be contested by the second and third-placed teams from the two groups. The final will be held on August 19.
