Match Notes

  • England retain Ashes after draw

    England women retained their Ashes by drawing the one-off Test against Australia in Worcester

  • Time running out for Australia

    England's Beth Morgan did a Paul Collingwood, scratching and grinding out a vital half-century while Laura Marsh - admittedly a slightly better batsman than Monty Panesar - offered 38 as England's women continued to defy Australia at Worcester

  • Gunn and Morgan defy Australia

    Australia's remarkable turnaround in this match was briefly halted by Beth Morgan and Jenny Gunn, as England's sixth-wicket pairing at last dug deep for the home side, putting on a stabilising stand of 57 on the second day of the Test at Worcester

  • Fields and Haynes rescue Australia

    Australia started poorly, slipping to 28 for 5, before they were rescued by Jodie Fields and Rachael Haynes in Worcester
