2020 Twenty20 - The Edwards Cup

The Surrey Championship Twenty20 Competition for The Edwards Cup

All clubs with a 1st XI in the Championship are invited to enter this year’s T20 competition.

Premier clubs are automatically entered but as an action, all other clubs with a Championship 1st XI are asked to please email Mark before 29th February, advising if you are entering or not. Please, could all clubs who are entering (including Premier) provide relevant details (name/email address) of your 2020 T20 contact to Mark if you haven't already created and included one on your 2020 Club Info Sheet.

The Ladder
The ]Draw for the 2020 Twenty20 Competition will be published on Play-Cricket once entries are complete.

As in 2019, only first-round matches need to be played midweek and should be completed no later than May 18th.

We will again be completing both Rounds 2 & 3 at 8 Super Monday venues across the county. These will all be played on Bank Holiday Monday, 25th May.

Round 4 games are to be played before July 5th.

Finals Day (semis and final) this year will be held at East Molesey Cricket Club on July 19th.
The winners will represent Surrey at Area Finals Day on 26th July and hopefully, progress to subsequent rounds on 16th Aug & 20th Sept.

Playing Conditions
Remain as per 2018 and can be downloaded in full here. These will be updated to incorporate the changes around eligibility to mirror the ECB regs. We would advise all clubs to review the ECB regulations carefully to ensure compliance. In case of any queries on eligibility, please contact Anthony Gamble.

Also, note we will again apply a significant fine on any club conceding within 7 days of Super Monday events to avoid planning issues for these enjoyable days. In the worst case, where a club does need to default, we will try and call up a Round One losing team instead.

Next Steps[/b ]once the draw is published

  • The home team must make contact with the opposition as soon as possible and arrange a date for the [b]first round matches.
  • The home team must provide 3 dates to the opposition for the match to take place.
  • It is up to the away team to accept one of those dates.
  • The date of the match must be advised to the Competition Manager (Phil Trayner) by email as soon as it has been arranged.
  • Results must be put on Play-Cricket within 24 hours of the match taking place. Ideally the full scorecard.

Clubs must arrange for their own umpires for Rounds 1 – 3 inclusive. Clubs needing umpires should contact the Surrey ACO. The Surrey Championship will arrange for umpires in Round 4 and the Finals Day.
