County T20 Finals 2013 at Preston Nomads

The County T20 Finals took place at Preston Nomads Cricket Club - a beautiful village club in southern England, near Brighton.


The weather was a little drizzly early on in the day, delaying the start and causing one of the semi-finals to be shortened; but although black clouds frequently threatened, the weather stayed away for the rest of the day.


There were lots of England players present, but a few were sidelined with injuries - Heather Knight, Lydia Greenway and Laura Marsh were all sat on the boundary; while Notts captain Jenny Gunn was another notable absentee,

The semi-finals saw Sussex beat Berkshire, in a very scrappy game; while Kent beat Notts on the other pitch.


The final saw Kent take advantage of Sarah Taylor's absence from the line-up (she was injured warming up), to restrict Sussex to 107, which Kent made with an over-or-three to spare, thanks mainly to an almost-half-century (49) from Lottie Edwards.
