The T20 Blast, which is now known as the Vitality Blast due to sponsorship reasons, is a professional Twenty20 cricket tournament for first-class counties in England and Wales. The competition was started in 2003 as the first professional Twenty20 league in the globe by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). It is England and Wales’ premier Twenty20 tournament.

From 2003 to 2009, it was known as the Twenty20 Cup, from 2010 to 2013 as the Friends Provident and Friends Life t20, and from 2014 to 2017 as the Natwest t20 Blast. Since 2018, Vitality, an insurance provider, has sponsored the competition, which is referred to as the Vitality Blast.
