Surrey and Somerset, who contested this year's Clydesdale Bank 40 final at Lord's, have been drawn together for the 2012 competition

The ECB today confirmed the groups for the 2012 Clydesdale Bank 40.

The Netherlands, Scotland and the Unicorns were allocated berths in Group A, B and C respectively. The 18 first-class counties were placed in a group by a free draw.

Teams will play every other side in their group home and away. The winners of each group and the best second-placed team will qualify for the semi-finals.
