2024 T20 Blast odds: Consistent Nottinghamshire aiming for more Finals Day glory

The 18 English counties compete in the T20 Blast each season and the battle to be crowned Twenty20 champions for 2024 starts on 30th May.

The Blast begins with a group stage, in which the teams are split into North and South Groups, before four quarter-finals.

The winners of those knockout ties qualify for Finals Day, which is scheduled to take place at Edgbaston on 14th September.

2024 T20 Blast Odds

(Odds will display when the market is available)

Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire have been one of the most consistent T20 Blast performers in recent years, qualifying for the quarter-finals in seven of the last eight seasons.

They lifted the trophy in 2017 and 2020 and are prominent in the betting for the 2024 tournament, having signed exciting Worcestershire trio Jack Haynes, Dillon Pennington and Josh Tongue.

However, former England internationals Jake Ball and Samit Patel have departed for Somerset and Derbyshire respectively and Pakistan paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi, who took 22 wickets in 14 Blast appearances last summer, is not expected to return to Trent Bridge.

Surrey

County cricket's inaugural T20 champions in 2003, Surrey are still waiting for a second title but they have come close to ending that drought in the past two seasons.

They suffered an agonising one-run defeat to Yorkshire in the 2022 quarter-final at The Oval and made it to Finals Day last summer, losing to Somerset in the semis.

Essex stalwart Dan Lawrence is an eye-catching signing and Australia's Aaron Hardie and Sean Abbott, who smashed a century off just 34 balls against Kent last season, are top-class T20 all-rounders.

Essex

Essex lost a tense Blast final to Somerset by 14 runs last season despite the best efforts of Australia all-rounder Daniel Sams, who top-scored in both of the Eagles' matches on Finals Day.

Sams and ace South Africa spinner Simon Harmer will be back at Chelmsford this summer and, while the loss of England international Dan Lawrence is a blow, new signing Jordan Cox was player of the match for Kent in the 2021 final.

Somerset

New Zealand fast bowler Matt Henry took 3-19 and 4-24 to lead Somerset to Finals Day victories over Surrey and Essex at Edgbaston in 2023.

The Cidermen needed a couple of nuggety knocks from middle-order man Sean Dickson on a rain-affected, low-scoring day in Birmingham but they were worthy champions, having won 12 of their 14 games in the South Group.

Top three batsmen Will Smeed, Tom Banton and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are capable of big-hitting fireworks at Taunton and Australian all-rounder Will Sutherland should shine during his group-stage stint.

Lancashire

Lancashire have had three quarter-final defeats, two semi-final reverses and a one-run loss to Hampshire in the final during the last six Blast seasons and their sole triumph came in 2015.

Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone's availability is likely to be limited by England commitments and Lancashire could be set for a season of transition after the departures of Matt Parkinson, Dane Vilas and fast bowler Richard Gleeson.

Birmingham Bears

Birmingham Bears narrowly missed out on a Finals Day appearance at their home ground last season, losing by two wickets to Essex in a thrilling quarter-final at Edgbaston.

The Bears had been outstanding in the group stage, winning 11 of their 14 matches to top the North Group by five points from Lancashire, and a revamped pace attack featuring Richard Gleeson, George Garton and Pakistan star Hassan Ali should be exciting.

Hampshire

Hampshire captain James Vince was the leading runscorer in last season's Blast, making seven fifties and a century in 16 innings, but his side came up short in a rain-affected semi-final against Essex.

Vince's men had won the 2022 final in dramatic circumstances, edging out Lancashire by one run, and their skipper also topped the tournament batting chart that year.

Ali Orr, signed from Sussex, and Australia's Ben McDermott add to Hampshire's batting power this season and Michael Neser and Naveen-ul-Haq will share the overseas fast-bowling duties.

Worcestershire

Worcestershire's 2023 Blast campaign ended with a whimper as they were bowled out for 100 in a quarter-final defeat to Hampshire at the Rose Bowl

They won the trophy in 2018 and were runners-up the following season but several New Road favourites, including England fast bowler Josh Tongue, have left the county over the winter.

Usama Mir, who topped Worcestershire's batting and bowling averages in last season's Blast, is due to return in 2024 but their other two overseas additions, Indian Yadvinder Singh and New Zealander Nathan Smith, are both uncapped at international level.
