SOMERST'S women's cricket team will return to action with a 50-over domestic tournament this summer.

Western Storm will take part in a special edition women’s domestic 50-over competition, featuring the eight new teams in the women’s elite domestic structure.

The competition will also be regionalised, into two groups of four teams, with the group winners meeting in a final.
