Jon Batty’s Oval Invincibles side will begin the defence of their trophy at neighbours London Spirit on Wednesday 2 August, the day after a double-header at Trent Bridge on Tuesday 1 August kicks off the third year of The Hundred – the first of 34 matchdays.

On returning to the Oval for 2022, Ryana MacDonald-Gay said: “I absolutely loved playing in The Hundred last year and it’s going to be brilliant to get back out there in front of our fans at The Kia Oval. We’ve kept a lot of the group together who helped us win last year and we’ll be doing everything we can to defend our trophy this year.”

Kent Spitfires take on Essex Eagles in the ‘Battle of the Bridge’ this June, with South East Stars making their first appearance at The Spitfire Ground in the Charlotte Edwards Cup on the same day. One price – one ticket!
