Kent clinched the Women's County Championship with a game to spare by winning all six of their matches to seal the title.

Captained by England's Tammy Beaumont, Kent beat Lancashire by six wickets in their penultimate game on Monday.

It is Kent's eighth title success and their first since 2016.

This could be the last Women's County Championship in its current format, as a reorganisation of the domestic game in 2020 has been widely reported.

It has already been confirmed that the Super League T20 tournament will be replaced by the new 100-ball competition - The Hundred - involving eight city-based franchises next summer.

BBC Sport has launched #ChangeTheGame this summer to showcase female athletes in a way they never have been before.
