Watch the England women's cricket team take on a selection of the Ladies European Tour in the 'Hit 'em for 6 challenge'

Ahead of a huge summer of women's sport live on Sky Sports we set six of England cricketers and six top stars from the Ladies European Tour a series of competitions combining their two sports for the Sky Sports CricGolf challenge.

In the first of three challenges, England cricketers - just a week ahead of the Women's Ashes - and golfers took on the 'Hit 'em for Six' challenge. Using a ball launcher, everyone had the chance to hit the cricket ball as far as they can. 

Taking part for Team Cricket were Heather Knight, Laura Marsh, Katherine Brunt, Natalie Sciver, Lydia Greenway and captain Charlotte Edwards. On Team Golf were Mel Reid, Dame Laura Davies, Amy Boulden, Stephanie Na, Hannah Burke and Holly Clyburn.

In the battle of the swings it was the cricketers who took the lead but the golfers would draw things level in the second task of the day.

Everyone had a go at attempting to hole a 30-foot putt and though many came close, it was Stephanie Na who got the golfers back in the game.

That meant the winning team would be decided with the final challenge. It would all come down to accuracy with both teams asked to hit targets from distance on the driving range - but who came out on top -  the cricketers or the golfers? Check out the video below to find out.
