LAUREN WINFIELD-HILL felt she proved her worth to new club Oval Invincibles after a player-of-the-match performance inspired victory over ex-employers Northern Superchargers.

The York batter cruised to 74 off 42 balls at the Kia Oval during the opening game of this year’s women's edition of The Hundred.

Winfield-Hill had worn the purple of the Superchargers last year before switching to Invincibles, but looked entirely comfortable in her new surroundings in south London.

“I think coming to a new team, a new environment, you always feel like you want to prove yourself in the first game and settle yourself into the new group,” Winfield-Hill said.

“I was really pleased with how I played. I had a lot of fun out there.

"It was fantastic - I loved it, it was great fun. It’s a fantastic place to bat. If they can wheel out a wicket like that every week that would be great."

Meanwhile, Yorkshire batter Adam Lyth has suspended from bowling ECB competitions by the governing body.

Lyth's action was independently assessed at Loughborough University, which found his elbow extension exceeded the regulated 15 degrees threshold.

The opener and part-time spinner is inlegible to bowl again in ECB competitions until he has passed an independent re-assessment.
