Match Report

England Women (297 and 245-9) drew with Australia Women (337-9 dec and 217-7 dec)

England Women and Australia Women played out a thrilling draw in the Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Test match.

Set an improbable 257 to win in 48 overs, Heather Knight and her team went about pulling off a record chase and with balls ticking away the visitors appeared to have become the favourites - after Knight and Sciver combined for a 72-run partnership.

Despite Sophia Dunkley keeping up the momentum, Australia chipped away and when England had one wicket left, the last pair of Sophie Ecclestone and Kate Cross dug in to see the two teams share the points.

The first ODI is at the same venue on Thursday, the multi-format Women's Ashes series sits at 6-4 to the hosts.
