London, England: The NatWest T20 Blast will start off from May 24 this year and all the counties have announced their squads for the competition.
While some of the teams are still recruiting overseas players for the NatWest T20 Blast this season, some of the other counties have already signed up for some big-ticket cricketers.
The Birmingham Bears will start off as defending champions led by Tim Ambrose but the fans’ biggest attraction for their team will be the New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum. Similarly, Jamaican opening batsman Chris Gayle will be a part of the Somerset side while Aussie unorthodox batsman Glenn Maxwell joins Yorkshire.
Aaron Finch, who was supposed to be a part of the Yorkshire side as well, will now miss the entire tournament following his hamstring injury that left him needing a surgery.
