The #Ashes still alive at Lords. Watch the 1st ODI tonight via livestreaming http://www.cricket.com.au/southern-stars-live

In the past, the Women’s Ashes would have already been completed with Australia retaining the trophy after the recent draw last week at Wormsley.

Now that doesn’t sound bad too for an Aussie supporter given the poor performances from our male team in their current Ashes series, but with the new format for this Women’s Ashes series being played over three formats, the drawn test saw both teams receive two points,  meaning the Ashes series is still very much alive for both teams.

On equal points, England need to win more than three games to regain the Ashes whereas Australia only need to win three out of the six remaining matches to retain the Ashes.

This Ashes Series is certainly heading down the path of being a nail bitting series.

With the one off Test completed we say goodbye to a format that is rarely played at an International level for women and move to the more recognisable formats of 50-over and T20 cricket.

Does this give an advantage to one team?
