Women's County T20 Update

The first week of County T20 action took place 10 days ago with Warwickshire and Lancashire the big winners in Div 1.

Warwickshire romped home against Somerset by nine wickets, chasing just 69 to win, and then put 168/5 (Kathryn Bryce 73* off 49 balls) on the board against Surrey, who could only manage 117/7 in reply.
Lancashire pulverised Kent, bowling them out for 71, as they chased Lancs 143/4. Spinners Emma Lamb (4/15) and Sophie Ecclestone (3/6), the main destroyers. They then comfortably beat Berkshire by 28 runs, although Berkshire kept them down to 130/9 in their 20 overs.

At the other end of the table Kent made it two losses out of two as they were bowled out by Berkshire for just 84. Berkshire cut it fine, but got home with two balls to spare.
Surrey also start the second round of fixtures with no points as they fell 15 runs short of Somerset's 146/3, in their second game of the opening weekend, having been 109/1.

Middlesex, Yorkshire, Berkshire, Sussex and Somerset all managed to win one game and lose one game, so the table looks like this

This Sunday sees some intriguing match ups

Warwickshire take on Berkshire and Yorkshire.
Lancashire have Somerset and Middlesex in their sights.
And bottom two Surrey and Kent are entertained at Sussex. 

In Div 2 Notts, Hampshire and Worcestershire lead the way with two wins out of two, followed by Scotland, Staffs and Wales, who managed one win, and then Essex, Durham and Derbyshire are yet to get off the mark. 
But it will be all change after Sunday as the top three all play each other in Worcestershire. Scotland and Staffs play Durham; and Wales and Essex are hosted at Derbyshire.
