Women's County Championship: Berkshire v. Kent
Berkshire's first home game of the 2013 season saw them take on Kent at Wokingham CC.
On a slightly chilly, overcast morning, Kent won the toss and chose to bowl.
During an attritional opening 10 overs just one wicket fell, but with Berkshire scoring at less than 2-an-over. As the game progressed though, Kent began to make inroads into Berkshire's young batting line-up, eventually bowling the home team out for just 62.
Despite losing Edwards (comparatively) early-on for 15, Kent never looked in any trouble; and made the runs with more than 20 overs to spare - the 6-wicket margin of victory, if anything, flattering Berkshire.
Kent are the reigning champions, and on this performance you'd be a fool to bet against them retaining their title in 2013.
