Women’s Ashes: Start Of Series Brought Forward To Allow For World Cup Quarantine

Posted by

Following a last-minute schedule modification, the Women’s Ashes between England and Australia will begin on January 20th, a week sooner than anticipated. Three Twenty20s will now precede one Test and three one-day internationals in the series.

Both teams will be able to go to New Zealand and complete a 10-day quarantine period before the Women’s World Cup, which begins on March 4th.
England is attempting to win the Ashes series for the first time since 2013-14.

The three T20s, which were initially slated to follow the Test, will take place in Adelaide on the 20, 22, and 23 of January. The Test will now begin at 23:00 GMT on January 26 in Canberra, followed by the ODIs.

Following away triumphs in 2015 and 2019, as well as a drawn series in Australia in 2017-18, Australia has held the Ashes for the last three series. The Women’s Ashes is a multi-format competition in which a Test victory is worth four points and an ODI or T20 victory is worth two.
