A WOMEN'S cricket team from Somerset could be playing at the Kia Oval this summer if they are successful in a new competition.

The Kia Summer Smash, launched in conjunction with The Cricketer magazine, is a unique tournament which will see teams from across the country battle it out in regional finals before the national finals day at Surrey's home ground on September 20.

Played in a T10 format, the regional finals will be contested by 12 teams in a group stage format leading up to a final to determine the winner.

The Western Festival is to take place on Saturday, July 13 with the venue to be decided.

Lydia Greenway, England Ashes winner and founder of Cricket for Girls, said: “As we continue on our quest to inspire more females to take up the game of cricket, we are delighted to be supporting this competition.

"There are thousands of females around the UK who have the passion and hunger to be playing more cricket, and it is vital that we facilitate this.

"Cricket is a fantastic sport, and if offered within the right environment and using the right formats we can ensure females especially, reap the benefits from the game and have a memorable experience which I am confident this tournament will provide.”
