Southern Vipers v Western Storm

Charlotte Edwards Cup

Friday 26th May (3:00pm start)

The Ageas Bowl

The Southern Vipers return to The Ageas Bowl as they face Western Storm in their second Charlotte Edwards Cup fixture of 2023.

The Vipers got off to a strong start at Falkland CC where they defeated a mighty South East Stars side by six wickets, with Danni Wyatt hitting 40 off 20 balls, and home-grown hero Lauren Bell taking 2-25.

Western Storm have already played two fixtures, and whilst they suffered defeat to the Northern Diamonds, they bounced back against Thunder to complete a six-wicket victory at Taunton where England captain Heather Knight (62) and ex-England batter Fran Wilson (53) steered them to their target of 155 with four balls to spare.

It will be the first time the two sides play each other in the Charlotte Edwards Cup.
