Ladies miss out on more sil­ver­ware

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - -

Char­lotte Ed­wards and her Kent team-mates went ag­o­nis­ingly close to adding another piece of sil­ver­ware to their col­lec­tion on Sun­day. Kent, who won the Royal Lon­don Women’s One­Day Cup last month, missed out on win­ning the T20 Cup for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year on run-rate on fi­nals day in Uxbridge. Hosts Mid­dle­sex, Kent and Not­ting­hamshire all ended the day with one win and one loss. But it was Not­ting­hamshire’s su­pe­rior run rate af­ter their 75-run win over Mid­dle­sex in the fi­nal match of the day which de­cided the ti­tle. Kent lost their open­ing match against Mid­dle­sex by 45 runs. Opener Natasha Miles top scored with 35 as Mid­dle­sex made 117-9 af­ter Ed­wards won the toss and sent them in. Kent could only man­age 72 all-out in re­ply with Ed­wards, the Eng­land cap­tain, top scor­ing with 15 off 23 balls. In their sec­ond and fi­nal game, Kent beat Not­ting­hamshire by two runs in another lows­cor­ing af­fair. Kent made 103-8 with Tammy Beau­mont (25) and Erin Ber­ming­ham (25) the ma­jor con­trib­u­tors. Laura Marsh then took 3-19 as Not­ting­hamshire were re­stricted to 101-7.
