Event Overview

The Finals Day of the inaugural Women's domestic T20 competition, the Charlotte Edwards Cup, comes to a thrilling conclusion at The Ageas Bowl on Sunday 5th September following an impressive showcase of Women's white-ball cricket across the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy, the Charlotte Edwards Cup, and of course, The Hundred this summer.

Following the South East Stars finishing top of Group A with the highest number of points out of both Groups A & B, they automatically qualified for the Final, whilst Group B winners, Northern Diamonds, will face The Ageas Bowl-based Southern Vipers in the Eliminator after the Vipers were the best placed runners-up, finishing in second place in Group A, but with a higher number of points than second-placed team in Group B.

The Eliminator (play-off) between Southern Vipers and Northern Diamonds, begins at 12pm, before the winner of this play-off will go on to face South East Stars in the Final beginning at 4pm.
