‘The Horses’ will be looking to complete the domestic double this year by winning this tournament. Just like the County Championship, Kent Women last won the Vitality Women’s County T20 in 2016.

In last season’s Vitality Women’s County T20, Kent Women finished third in the table behind rivals Sussex and champions Middlesex, winning five of their eight games in the tournament.

Alice Davidson-Richards was the county’s top scorer last season with 138 runs in six innings at 35.25 whilst Jenni Jackson topped The Horses’ wicket taking charts with 8 from 20 overs overall at an average of just 8.75.

Kent’s leading wicket taker from the County Championship, Megan Belt, is included in a strong Kent squad that also includes England internationals Davidson-Richards and Kent Women vice-captain Tash Farrant, who will lead the side.

Kent Women’s only home games in this tournament will be on Sunday 23rd June when they host Middlesex Women and Birmingham Bears Women at The County Ground, Beckenham.

Tickets are available in advance for £5 and will also be £5 on the gate – entry is free for ALL Kent members and package holders and this fixture does not count towards one day’s worth of cricket in the Six Pack package.
