DAWN Prestidge inspired Cheshire to victory in their opening Liverpool Victoria Women's County Championship match against Middlesex on Sunday.

The Chester Boughton Hall all-rounder took 2-23 and then flayed a show-stopping 57no as Cheshire reached 172-3 at

Hawarden Park's Castle Ground, bettering the visitors' 171-8 (Lorna Thomas 3-24).

Cheshire's Australian star Megan White chipped in with a quickfire 40 from 52 deliveries, sharing a match-winning stand of 82 with 20-year-old Prestidge.
