  Female Cricket Scorer Thursday 10 July 2003  
It was a long time coming, but in 1998 the former England Women's Cricket Captain, Rachel Heyhoe Flint, finally succeeded in getting admission for women to the Holy of Holies - the MCC and all areas at Lords Cricket Ground - so far only open to men.

And this weekend there'll be another first. No woman has ever scored an International Test at Lords, but Cathy Rawson will sit with the others at the One Day International Final this Saturday.
Victoria Shepherd caught up with her as she scored a Premier League Ladies match in Kent.
