The English County Championship will return to a two-division construction from subsequent season after two coronavirus-affected campaigns, the England and Wales Cricket Board introduced on Thursday. The Bob Willis Trophy was launched in 2020 and a three-group construction used for this yr’s first-class competitors. Subsequent yr, 10 groups will play in division one and eight groups in division two, with a two-up, two-down promotion-and-relegation system.
Every county will probably be positioned into the division they might have been set to compete in had the 2020 County Championship taken place.
Lancashire, Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire received promotion to Division One and Nottinghamshire have been relegated to Division Two.
The return to 2 divisions, with every group taking part in 14 matches, was voted by by the first-class counties.
Division One: Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Kent, Lancashire, Northamptonshire, Somerset, Surrey, Warwickshire, Yorkshire
Division Two: Derbyshire, Durham, Glamorgan, Leicestershire, Middlesex, Nottinghamshire, Sussex, Worcestershire
