Here's your at-a-glance guide to Northamptonshire's cricket fixtures for the 2020 season.

On Tuesday morning, the ECB announced the domestic schedule for next summer, with fixtures being released the three domestic competitons, as well as the new Hundred tournament.

The County are returning to the top flight of English first-class cricket for the first time since 2015, and will begin their campaign with a trip to Edgbaston to take on neighbours Warwickshire.

David Ripley is confident his side is capable of competing in the first-class game, and believes his team are also genuine contenders for the T20 Blast and Royal London One Day Cups, which is being played at the same time as The Hundred.

Here, we break down the Northants fixtures for next summer into an easy to follow competition-by-competition, and month-by-month schedule.
