Kent cricketers suffer SuperSixes exit with England at Women's World Cup in India
cricketers Charlotte Edwards, Lydia Greenway, Lauren
Marsh and Tammy Beaumont suffered a Super
Sixes exit as England’s women failed to defend their World Cup
crown in India.
After suffering a shock group loss against Sri Lanka in
their opening game of the tournament and a two-run defeat against
Australia, England needed to beat New Zealand in Mumbai on
Wednesday and hope that already-qualified Australia would beat West
Indies, in order to reach the final.
However Australia lost their last four wickets for 10
runs to suffer a surprise defeat meaning England’s
15-run win over New Zealand - which included a half-century from
skipper Edwards (pictured) was in vain.
Meanwhile Kent skipper James Tredwell will
be aiming to help England wrap up a Twenty20 series win in New
Zealand on Friday morning.
The Kent captain hit 22 off just 11 balls but his efforts were
in vain as England lost in Hamilton on Tuesday. Tredwell took 1-20
from his two overs as the Kiwis posted 192-6. England then fell to
a 55-run defeat, with Tredwell their second-highest scorer in a
total of 137.
Darren Stevens, meanwhile, continues to impress
for Bangladesh Premier League t20 side Dhaka Gladiators.
Stevens will complete the group stage against Chittagong
Kings on Thursday night looking to secure their place at
the head of the points table.
The Kent all-rounder is second in the league averages with 61 in
nine matches – totalling 182 – while ex-Kent colleague
Azhar Mahmood, who plays for the struggling
Barisal Burners, has averaged 35.
The semi-finals of the competition will be held on Saturday and
Sunday with the final on Tuesday night.
