Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy: Northern Diamonds defeats Central Sparks within the last


Ami Campbell met in their innings of the 76th nine fours and three sixs

Northern Diamonds won the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy play-off against Central Sparks with six wickets to play a final against Southern Vipers.

The Sparks were capped at 175-7 in their 50 overs, with Gwen Davies and Ria Fackrell both having the best results at 42.

Fackrell and Emily Arlott helped Sparks recover from 101-7 but struggled to accelerate against a tight bowling.

Ami Campbell's 76 of 78 deliveries helped Northern Diamonds hit 176-4 in just 32.5 overs.

Diamonds wobbled to 42-3 at Scarborough after Arlott picked up two wickets in an over, but Campbell's fourth wicket booth of 116 with Sterre Kalis (41 out) paved the way for the win.

The finale, a replay of last year's showpiece, takes place on Saturday at 10:30 am BST on Wantage Road in Northampton.
