25THE WOMEN’S ASHES SERIES
Inspire by the men’s game that began in 1882, the Women’s Ashes series began 52 years later in 1934. It is a cricket match between England and Australia. Not only was this the inaugural Women’s Ashes, but it was also the inaugural Women’s Test Match! 24 editions have since been played, with the 25th taking place in England in June and July of current year.
Legacy of Ashes
When Australia defeated England in a test match at The Oval in London in 1882, the rivalry that would become known as The Ashes was born. The Sporting Times published a spoof obituary stating that English cricket had passed away and that “the body will be cremated, and the ashes will be taken to Australia.” The Ashes were so created. Since then, this storied rivalry has been contested in both men’s and women’s cricket, representing the height of rivalry between the two cricketing behemoths.
How does it work?
From 1934 until 2013, when the WOMEN’S ASHES SERIES format was changed, this was the arrangement. The series presently uses a variety of forms, such as Test, ODI, and IT20. The competition consists of seven games: three ODIs, one Test, and three Twenty20 matches. The ODIs and T20s are worth 2 points apiece, while the Test is worth 4 points. The points are distributed equally between the teams if a game is drawn or abandoned. Whoever finishes the seven games with the most points is the victorious team. If the match concludes with both teams tied on points, the team who won the previous Ashes keeps the trophy.
