Trent Bridge, the home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, is set to host three days of trial matches for the proposed new 100-ball competition, Sky Sports report.

The new format, which is scheduled to begin in 2020, will involve 15 six-ball overs and one closing over consisting of 10 deliveries and will run alongside the current Vitality T20 Blast tournament.

Players competing in the three matches between September 16-18 in Nottingham are still unknown, with England white-ball specialist Alex Hales rumoured to be a likely selection.

Three women’s trial games will also take place next month at Loughborough on September 14, 15 and 27.

All players involved in the trial matches will be asked for feedback from the ECB to see if the proposed competition is workable.

Professional Cricketers’ Association chairman and Worcestershire batsman Daryl Mitchell revealed earlier in the week that the ECB are hoping to have one representative from each of the 18 counties involved in the three trial fixtures.
