Women’s Ashes: England v Australia


Ashes are one of the best test series that is held between Australia and England for many years. As far as women’s ashes are concerned, it is actually a series in international test cricket of women between Australia and England. Australia cricket team is one of the best teams in the history of cricket that has recently won the cricket world cup for ODI’s and is well known for its excellence in the field of cricket. On the other hand, the performance of England with respect to cricket cannot be ignored because they have improved themselves up to a great extent in few years and have now quality players in their team.

The first test series of women’s cricket teams between Australia and England was held in 1934 to 1935. It was not only the game because the captain of England was not ready to be linked with the concepts of male cricketers for Tests and Ashes so she called it to be the game of love. From that time, the women’s cricketers started improving themselves after learning too many techniques for test cricket. No doubt, they started from zero at that time but everything gets better and better with the passage of time. The new trophy for women’s ashes was produced in the year 2013. The total number of test series played between England and Australia for women are 21 among which 48 test matches are played. Each test series varies from 1 to 5 matches. Among 48 test matches, Australia has won 12 matches whereas England has won 9 whereas remaining 27 were drawn. Similarly, if we see with respect to series then Australia has won 8 series and England has won 6.
