Four teams took part in the first ever women's T10 internal tournament last weekend in Gibraltar with Netherlands, Sweden and Italy joining the hosts in what were the first senior internationals to be played in the British Overseas Territory since 1999, and the first women's event organised by the European Cricket Network.
The hosts lost all six matches in the double round robin stage, with Sweden's only wins coming against Gibraltar. A strong Dutch side largely dominated the group stages, with Sterre Kalis and Babette de Leede scoring the only half-centuries of the tournament.
Twice the Dutch won by 90+ run margins and they bowled well too, at one point restricting the hosts to 14-9 from ten overs. Their sole slip up came against the Italians, who beat them by seven wickets in a match that went down to the last ball.
Netherlands and Italy met in the final on Saturday, with Italian captain Kumudu Peddrick asking the Dutch to bat first after she won the toss. A total of 129-3, Sterre Kalis top scoring with 47, proved too stiff for the Italians, who were restricted to 67-6 from their ten overs to lose by 62 runs.
