Canterbury to host Women’s International T20 in Summer 2024

International T20 cricket will return to Canterbury on Thursday 11 July 2024 when The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence hosts the 3rd match in England’s IT20 series against New Zealand.

It is only the second time that Canterbury has hosted a Women’s International T20 match in its long history, and will be another boost for the continued growth of women’s cricket in Kent.

England Women will host New Zealand, who may feature former Kent Women stars such as Suzie Bates in their ranks, in a three-match Women’s ODI Series (June 26 – July 3) and a five-match IT20 Series (July 6-17).

England Women will play across 14 venues in total – including Edgbaston, The Kia Oval, The Ageas Bowl and Headingley – before finishing their schedule with the fifth IT20 against New Zealand Women at Lord’s on July 17.

Richard Gould, ECB CEO, said: “Next Summer’s schedule will see England Women play at more venues and allow more people to see their heroes in action as we look to maintain the growth the women’s game deserves.

“We are looking forward to another memorable summer which is set to finish with white-ball series against New Zealand for our England Women’s team and Australia for our England Men’s team.”

Kent Cricket CEO, Simon Storey, said: “We’re excited to be hosting a Women’s International T20 match here at Canterbury during the height of Summer in 2024.

“We are always extremely proud to host England Women at The Spitfire Ground, and we know that our international women’s fixtures always get a lot of attention at both a local and national level.

“Women’s cricket is growing at a big rate and we’re proud to continue to help this growth.”
