Kent stars lift Women’s Hundred trophy at Lord’s

Four Kent Women players were amongst a victorious Oval Invincibles side that won the first edition of the Women’s Hundred on Saturday.

Left-armer and Kent vice-captain Tash Farrant ends the tournament as its top wicket-taker, with 18 at an average of only 10.27.

Her Kent teammates Fran Wilson finished with 108 runs in nine innings, with all-rounder Grace Gibbs contributing with 46 runs and two wickets, and Scotland international Sarah Bryce scoring 32 runs.

Bryce’s 11 dismissals behind the stumps was the most of any ‘keeper in the Women’s competition.

Megan Belt was also a part of the victorious Oval Invincibles squad, making it five Kent players that were a part of The Hundred’s first title-winning squad.

Elsewhere in the tournament, Horses all-rounder Alice Davidson-Richards played in seven matches, scoring 110 runs at 27.50 and took seven wickets at 23.42 for Northern Superchargers, alongside Horses off-spinner, Kalea Moore.

Moore took four wickets at 21.25 in five matches.

Kent teammates Phoebe Franklin and Kirstie Gordon both featured for Birmingham Phoenix as they made the Eliminator stage of the competition.

Horses spinner Gordon took 15 wickets in nine matches at an average of just 14.13, the second-most amount of wickets from any bowler in the Women’s Hundred.

For London Spirit, Kent Women’s captain, Tammy Beaumont, scored 139 runs in six matches at 23.16 – Horses teammate Susie Rowe also featured in three matches for the Lord’s-based side, and Grace Scrivens two.
