Australia have retained the women’s Ashes but there’s still plenty to play for as England look to become the first team to win an ODI series against Australia since 2013. Let’s take a look at two teams before their clash.


England women clinched the first One-Day international by two wickets to end Australia’s 15-match winning streak. In the second game, they lost by a narrow margin of three runs despite Nat Sciver-Brunt’s incredible 111 not-out.
