Southern Vipers will defend the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy this summer after it was confirmed that the tournament will continue to be named after the former England captain.

Vipers won the first edition of the regional 50-over competition – in recognition of Baroness Rachael Heyhoe Flint OBE’s contribution to cricket – and have now set their sights on the 2021 final, which will take place on September 25.

The competition will be played alongside a new Women’s Regional T20 tournament; It will start on June 26 and will consist of eight teams, divided into two groups of four.

Clare Connor, General Manager of Women’s Cricket, said: “This promises to be a truly memorable summer of women’s cricket.

“Not only do we plan to further professionalize the game with more full-time players than ever before, but most importantly, we will show our game to more young girls in England and Wales so they can say that cricket is a game for them.
