Kent Women have named a 13-strong squad for a tough round of NatWest T20 matches at Arundel Castle on Sunday, writes Caitlyn Hobbs.

The reigning county champions are top of the table in the 50-over format and will take on hosts Sussex and Middlesex, aiming to go one better than the runners-up finish last season. Head coach Stuart Eddicott will rotate his squad as Kent aim for maximum points. Eddicott said: “If we can get through this round of games with two victories, this puts us in a great position to win the competition.”
