CRICKETher has learned that Berkshire captain (and England vice-captain) Heather Knight is set to miss the first day of the county season, after flying back from a training camp in Sri Lanka only the day before.

This is a major blow for The Beavers; and with their big-name overseas signing, Aussie Alex Blackwell, also yet to arrive, they are looking paper-thin for their opening match-up with Middlesex at Edmonton Cricket Club.

However, Middlesex are also expected to be without a key player – spinner Alex Hartley, who has impressed for the England Academy over the winter.

Knight is likely to play on Monday, against Surrey at North Maidenhead.
