Women's County Championship: Berkshire v. Yorkshire

On another windy day in Wokingham, it was Yorkshire who were blown away - coming back down to earth with a bump after their surprise victory over Sussex the day before.

Batting first, Berkshire set up an impressive total of 216, thanks mainly to a century from Heather Knight.

Knowing they needed to score quickly, Yorkshire set off at a rate of knots; but wickets began to tumble and they soon found themselves in deep trouble at 52/7.

Yorkshire recovered slightly, taking drinks after 25 overs at 97/7; but they were finished off quite soon after, bowled out for 108; giving Berkshire the win by over 100 runs.
