Kia Super League Schedule for 2017

Little less than a month after winning the World Cup, most of England’s cricketers will be in action in the Kia Super League that begins on Thursday, August 10 at the Ageas Bowl. Defending champions Southern Vipers play the Western Storm in the opener that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and BBC Radio along with few of the other games in the tournament this season. The Kia Super League schedule for all its matches & for those telecast live can be found below.

The Vipers and Storm had clashed in the previous season’s final and will play again in the tournament’s opening game this year. This will be followed by 14 group games in the six-team event, with each of those six sides taking on each other before the Finals Day.

The top-ranked side will make the final while the teams placed second and third at the end of the league stage will face off in a semi-final to earn the right to play that number one side in the title-decider.

Some of the group games will be televised live on Sky Sports along with the ball-by-ball commentary on BBC Radio.

Over 15,000 fans watched the 15 group stage matches in the first season of the Kia Super League and this number can be expected to rise dramatically following the success of the England’s women’s cricket team in the recently-concluded World Cup. They won nine games in a row to clinch the trophy, beating India in the final.

This year’s Cricket Super League will be played over 17 days and will see 13 different venues host the six sides. The Finals Day will be held at the 1st Central County Ground in Hove.

Clare Connor, ECB Director of England Women’s Cricket, said

“At the end of last summer I said that I was immensely proud of what the Kia Super League had achieved during its first season, but equally I stressed that there was still considerable growth potential for the competition.”

“Moving into year two I am therefore delighted to announce the next historic moment in the development of the domestic women’s game in this country, with six Kia Super League group stage matches plus finals day due to be televised live on Sky Sports, alongside enhanced levels of broadcast coverage throughout the competition on BBC Radio.”
