Kent captain Tammy Beaumont and T20 skipper Tash Farrant both played for Southern Vipers, as they beat Loughborough Lightning by 2-wickets, and then were defeated by Western Storm by 3-wickets. Vipers captain Beaumont scored 37 against the Storm, and Farrant finished with figures of 3-23 in the defeat.
