Friends Life t20 unveiled
The domestic t20 competition will this year be known as the Friends Life t20 following last week’s official launch of Friends Life.
Friends Life is a new group that brings together the UK business of Friends Provident and part of AXA’s UK life and pensions business.
The Friends Life t20 in 2011 follows the same format as last year’s competition and begins on June 1 when current champions Hampshire Royals take on 2010 runners up Somerset at the Rose Bowl. Finals day will be held on August 27 at Edgbaston.
As well as providing highly entertaining top-class sport, the Friends Life t20 will continue to give spectators an experience beyond the boundary, including music, dancers, cheerleaders, mascot races and theme nights, so the competition is sure to be one of the highlights of the season.
