England Women held Australia to a drawn multi-formar Ashes, as the thrilling series was played out in front of record attendances.
Heather Knight’s team handed Australia their first T20 series defeat since 2017 and first ODI series loss in a decade, but the tourists retained the coveted urn due to points, primarily picked up from Australia winning the sole Test Match, being level.
Nat Sciver-Brunt was in outstanding form in the sold-out We Got Game ODI series, scoring centuries in each of the final two games and coming just a handful of runs short of a clean sweep in the 50-over games, while Derbyshire’s own Sarah Glenn was a key performer across the white ball formats, forming a devastating spin tandem with the number-one ranked Sophie Ecclestone.
In the Test Match, Tammy Beaumont became the first English woman to record a Test double-hundred, while Ecclestone starred with the ball, claiming ten wickets in the match.
There were thrilling finishes across all three formats, as England fought hard to keep The Ashes series alive after a tough start, even taking both white ball games they lost into the final over.
England’s Ashes stars will be in T20 action at The Incora County Ground this summer, as they take on Sri Lanka on Wednesday 6 September (6pm), hoping to extend the run of form that has seen them only lose in Derby once since 2017.
