Test ends in thrilling draw after brave England score record fourth-innings total
The clamour for more women's Tests got a whole lot louder after a thrilling last-day draw in the only Test of the Ashes. Chasing 257 to win, England made the highest fourth-innings score in women's Test history. With two overs left in the final day, England needed 13 runs and Australia just one wicket. In the first innings Heather Knight's 168 not out made history as the highest score by a visiting batter in Australia in women's Tests. Is it the highest score by an England women's captain in a Test? Steven Lynch had the answer.
Jason Holder's four-in-four puts seal on West Indies' series

Matt Roller looks at the lessons England can take from the T20I series defeat on their death bowling, fringe batting and how to defend, and says they haven't suddenly become a bad T20I side by any means.
