Kent CCC have announced that captain Charlotte Edwards is to leave the county after 16 seasons and over 6,000 runs, during a period in which Kent have dominated the women’s county game.
In a statement released by the club, Edwards said:
“It’s been a really tough decision to leave Kent but ultimately I feel it’s the right decision for me and more importantly the current team. Having won the double in 2016 I feel this is a fitting end to my time as a Kent cricketer.”
“I would like to thank everyone at Kent County Cricket Club for all their support over the past 16 years. I’m immensely proud to have played for the county and what the team has achieved within that time.”
Edwards, who is currently in Australia playing WNCL/WBBL, was recently appointed as a management board director of Hampshire CCC and the Southern Vipers, and has committed herself to playing for the Vipers next year; but it is currently unknown if she will continue to play county cricket.
