Super mum puts @SouthernStars in a good position. #ashes

After Day one of the Women’s Ashes Series, Sarah Elliott has guided the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars to comfortable position with an unbeaten 95, leaving Australia 3-243 at stumps.

At the start of the day the sun tried to pop its head out from behind the clouds as the crowd rolled in and set up their tents and picnic rugs around the picturesque ground of Wormsley. 

It was estimated that over 2000 people enjoyed the day’s play with hopes of a bigger crowd for crucial day two.

The day was full excitement as not only was it day one of a test match, there were a number of players from both teams that were making their Test debut. 

From the Australian side it was Meg Lanning, Holly Ferling, Erin Osborne and Megan Schutt, and from England, Heather Knight and Anya Shrubsole. 

The women’s teams get to play Test matches so infrequently that a Test debut is a real treasure.

With the pitch described by the BBC commentators as straw in colour that was quite hard, it was a great toss to win by Jodie Fields and our openers, Haynes and Lanning set to enforce that.
