Ed Foster from Shrewsbury Cricket Club said: "Twenty20 cricket is very popular around the world, so it's great that there's a high quality competition in Shropshire for both the players and spectators to enjoy. There's a lot of friendly rivalry between the four participating clubs, which will undoubtedly contribute to some tense and exciting cricket not to be missed."
