Alastair Cook, Eoin Morgan and Steven Finn are among the England stars on show for the NatWest T20 Blast Double Header at Lord's on Saturday 17 May.
In its 200th year, the Home of Cricket hosts a first domestic T20 Double Header as home team Middlesex play both Essex and Sussex in one afternoon.
The Panthers, under the stewardship of new one-day skipper Eoin Morgan, have the opportunity to steal a march on their rivals in the new competition.
But they face stern opposition first-up from last year's semi-finalists Essex - who beat England's next opponents Sri Lanka on Tuesday - and later Sussex, who feature Test candidate fast bowler Chris Jordan.
