Lancashire and Surrey have retained their female players on their Academy schemes. Kathryn Cross, of Lancashire, and the two Surrey players Ebony Rainford-Brent and Anna Stevenson, will embark upon their second year as academy players.

Competition for places is fierce, with Lancashire offering 11 spots in all, while Surrey have cut their places from 14 to ten for this year.

Meanwhile, the MCC has come on board to sponsor The Sunday Times' Young Sportswoman of the Year award. The three-year deal also includes an arrangement for Lord's to host the annual event.

Keith Bradshaw, MCC's secretary and chief executive, said: "Women's sport continues to grow in stature, popularity and excellence.  These awards are the ultimate recognition of excellence. We are extremely proud that Lord's will play host to this prestigious event."  

This year's Sportswomen of the Year awards take place at Lord's on November 20.
