Kent, Berkshire, Yorkshire and
Sussex through to the
2010 Women’s Twenty20 finals.
England internationals Charlotte
Edwards, Claire Taylor and Katherine Brunt will represent their counties
in the finals of the ECB Women’s Twenty20 competition on Saturday, 18th
September at Bishop's Stortford Cricket Club.
Edwards will lead out Kent while Taylor and Brunt will represent
Berkshire and Yorkshire respectively. Sussex will be the fourth team
competing for the title and will be hoping for a repeat performance of
last weekend's LV= Women’s County Championship victory.
The competition, which kicked off across the country in August, was
added to the women’s domestic calendar in 2009 and saw thirty-three
counties line up to take part.
Clare Connor, Head of England Women’s Cricket, said: “The ECB Women’s
County Twenty20 adds value to the domestic calendar. It’s an excellent
opportunity for women’s county teams to play more Twenty20 cricket, a
format that is clearly set to play a huge part in the future of women’s
cricket at every level.”
The competition format sees counties divided into regions, with two
South & West, four Midlands & North and three South leagues. The winners
of Division One in each region – Kent, Berkshire and Yorkshire –
together with Sussex, the best runner-up on net run rate, will play in
the 2010 national finals.
