Bob Willis Trophy ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
The Bob Willis Trophy is a tournament held in the 2020 English cricket season. It is a one-off, first-class cricket tournament that is separate from the County Championship, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom. The eighteen county cricket teams have been split into three groups of six, with the two group winners with the most points advancing to a final held at Lord's. The maximum number of overs bowled in a day was reduced from 96 to 90, and the team's first innings could be no longer than 120 overs.
