The 2006 Twenty20 Cup final will be held at Trent Bridge, the venue for the first final in 2003.

"We are absolutely delighted that our bid has been successful and I think it reflects the faith which the ECB have in us to stage big occasions," said Lisa Pursehouse, Nottinghamshire's commercial director. "We have a proven track record for filling the ground and running big matches with great efficiency and I'm sure these were key factors in the decision.

"It was a magnificent day two years ago when we staged the inaugural Twenty20 final and knowing that other counties were keen to secure the event for 2006, we thought the chances of us getting it again so soon must have been slim. But our proposal has been successful and it's brilliant news that our members and supporters will have easy access to one of the showpiece sporting occasions of the summer."

The final is provisionally scheduled for Saturday, August 12, with the Sunday set aside as a reserve day should the weather intervene.

Trent Bridge will stage the third Test against Sri Lanka which starts on Friday, June 2.
