The European Cricket Network (ECN) recently made history with the inaugural Women's International T10 competition, held in Gibraltar. The event, named the European Cricket International Women's (ECIW) event, saw four teams from around Europe compete for the title.

The four teams that participated in the tournament were Gibraltar, Sweden, Netherlands, and Italy. Each team featured a mix of experienced players and up-and-coming talent, and the tournament provided an opportunity for these players to showcase their skills on an international stage.

The format of the tournament was a round-robin followed by finals night. Each team played each other twice in the round-robin stage, with the top two teams advancing to the final. The matches were played at the picturesque Europa Sports Complex in Gibraltar.

All four teams showed great skill and determination. In the end, it was the Netherlands who emerged as champions, defeating Italy in a thrilling final. The Dutch team, led by their captain, the talented all-rounder Heather Siegers, put in a dominant performance, winning the final by 62 runs.
