Kent win Royal London Women’s One-Day Championship

Victory over Lancashire sealed the Royal London Women’s One-Day Championship for Kent as they made it six wins from six to claim their first 50-over title since 2016.

There were a brace of wins for Hampshire, while both results went against Surrey. The other five counties won and lost a game apiece in the top tier.

Kent’s eighth 50-over trophy means the Horses have now become the most successful county in the history of the women’s County Championship.

For captain Tammy Beaumont, it was a victory of team spirit and togetherness: “I’m really proud of the team for winning the County Championship with a game to spare.

“We’ve had a lot of close games where we’ve shown a lot character to get over the line and the whole squad has had to contribute at times.

“We’ve really come together to beat a strong Yorkshire and Lancashire team this weekend and the title is a real credit to the girls, and to all the coaching staff who’ve worked so hard for us.”
