Vitality T20 Blast Free Bets
Since its introduction in 2003, Twenty20 cricket has grown quickly in popularity around the world. The T20 Blast is the English version and whilst it might not quite have the glitz and glamour of the Indian Premier League or Australia’s Big Bash, it is still full of excitement for the two months it runs for.
This is the second season in which the competition has been sponsored by Vitality. They are a health and life insurance company and also offer help re investments. They sponsor the men's and women's T20 matches, including the recent women's T20 Ashes series between England and Australia.
They are also the Official Partner of the England and Wales Cricket Board. Their ambassadors include England Test captains Joe Root and Heather Knight as well as Jos Buttler.

Where to use your free T20 Blast bet
As with any competition there will be plenty of money going on who will emerge as the winner of the Vitality T20 Blast and with just 18 teams involved the cash will be relatively well distributed across the sides.
The group stage nature of the tournament also gives punters the option to back the winners of the three groups as well as the team that will lift the trophy come the end of August. The qualification for the quarter-finals is also a very popular market, especially as three of six teams can make it to the knockout stages and many will believe they can pick one of these sides.
The top batsman and bowler markets are also very popular in the T20 Blast tournament although they can be something of a lottery. There are always certain players that you will expect to be up there in terms of runs and wickets but there will often be a youngster or even an under-rated journeyman who can spring a surprise if the conditions suit.
The 18 county teams are split into two divisions for the tournament; the north and south.. In each division, the top four will go on to compete in the quarter-finals of the event. Then the finals day takes place which sees both semi-finals played out prior to the final on the same night.
