The team, led by Charlotte Edwards, beat Nottinghamshire by 10 runs in the semi-final before overcoming old rivals Sussex by eight-wickets in a one-sided final.

Having restricted Sussex to a meagre 107 for five from their 20 overs, Kent lost just two wickets as they successfully chased it down with 10 deliveries remaining.

Kent had beaten Nottinghamshire in the semi-finals earlier in the day.

Batting first Kent made 131 for four with Women's Ashes winner Tammy Beaumont shining with a well-made 47 at slightly better than a run a ball.

Nottinghamshire got close in their reply, finishing just eight runs adrift for the loss of seven wickets.
