Women’s Ashes retained

17SouthernStars

The  Southern Stars have regained some Aussie pride, retaining the Women’s Ashes.

The Women’s Ashes comprises a stand-alone Test, three ODs and three T20 matches.

The Southern Stars won the Test by 161 runs and the ODI series 2-1. Leading 3-1 after four matches, the Stars needed just one win in the three T20 matches. After losing the opening game at Chelmsford by seven wickets, the Stars secured the Ashes at Hove.

Batting first, Australia made 7/107 from 20 overs. Rene Farrell took 3/17 as England were dismissed for 87 in 19.1 overs. England were in trouble at 3/10 after 2.3 overs and never recovered.

In a boon for the Women’s game, the final T20 at Cardiff will be televised on GEM. Ironically, the Women’s series ends where the Men’s started – at Sophia Gardens.

The Southern Stars have gradually become more popular, with T20 internationals telecast on Nine, leading to the first WBBL this summer – running in conjunction with BBL05.
