Lancashire Women end campaign with mixed fortunes

Lancashire Women ended their 2018 season in mixed fashion with a win and a defeat in two T20 matches against Surrey and Yorkshire at Widnes CC.

The results mean that Dan Atkinson’s side finish sixth in the T20 Division One, following a fourth place finish in the Women’s County Championship.

Lancashire Captain Eve Jones won the toss in the opening match against Surrey, she elected to bat and her and opening partner Emma Lamb made a solid start with a partnership of 51.

The Red Rose were pegged back during the middle overs and lost a flurry of wickets, until cameos at the back end of the innings from Ellie Threlkeld (15), Natalie Brown (12) and Laura Jackson (12*) took the score to 128/8 from 20 overs.

Lancashire would have to bowl well to defend a small total and they made a good start as wickets for Kate Cross and Millie Hodge reduced the visitors to 7/2.

The Red Rose manage to restrict the scoring rate and pick up timely wickets to claim a seven run victory as Surrey could only reach 121/5 – Cross finishing with economical figures of 1/14 from her four overs.

Scorecard

Lancashire were asked to field in the second match as they took on Roses rivals Yorkshire, who had already been confirmed as relegated.

Lauren Winfield top scored for Yorkshire as she hit 65 before Lancashire spinner Alex Hartley ripped through the middle order to claim figures of 3/23 from her four overs.

Yorkshire added some quick runs in the closing overs as B Langston finished unbeaten on 46 as the visitors posted a competitive looking 143/6.

Lancashire lost Jones without scoring, but looked well in the game at 103/3 courtesy of Lamb (40) and Threlkeld (33).

However five wickets falling for just 18 runs saw them lose their momentum and finish the run chase eight wickets down and 17 runs short of the Yorkshire total.
