The draws have been made for the 2013 BBS Cup & BCEW Twenty20 Cup with Warwickshire & Metro coming out worst off.

The two sides will face each other in the quarter finals of the BBS Cup for the third year in a row & in the T20 cup they face difficult trips to South Wales & Sussex respectively.

BBS Cup debutants Lancashire & Nottingham Knights received home draws against Durham & Hampshire, where as BCEW T20 debutants Lancashire Lions & Nottinghamshire VICC will clash in the preliminary round. If Lancashire progress in both competitions it will lead to them hosting local rivals Yorkshire in the quarter finals of both.

The most interesting tie in the first round of the BBS Cup is, probably, Southern Development League winners Somerset VICC hosting Northants Steelbacks, although Nottinghamshire VICC v South Wales Dragons should also be a very competitive clash.

The main T20 cup is not open to development league teams in 2013 as they will have their own Twenty20 competition for which the draw will be made at a later date.

The entry list for the BCEW League has also now been confirmed, Lancashire Lions come in with Metro Devils dropping down to the development league.
