More news, no ads


Berkshire seamer Lauren Bell helped Southern Vipers win their maiden Charlotte Edwards Cup thanks to a six-wicket win over Central Sparks.

Bell bowled three economical overs for 19 runs as the Vipers restricted Central Sparks to 109-8 from their 20 overs.

Bell took five wickets in the tournament as the Vipers, who are coached by Charlotte Edwards herself, went unbeaten.

Her standout performance came against Lightning on May 18 when her pace, bounce and swing helped her to impressive figures of 3-12 from her four overs.
