Women's Ashes Test is drawn

A mature batting display sees England secure a draw with Australia in the Women's Ashes Test, leaving the new-look series tied with six limited-overs games to come.

A mature batting display on day four of four saw England secure a draw with Australia in the Women's Ashes Test at Wormsley.

Chasing 249 to win from 45 overs, the home side reached 93-2 by stumps. Australia skipper Jodie Fields had earlier made an unbeaten 78 before declaring on 231-5.

The draw means that both sides receive two points in the new Ashes format, which will now continue with three one-day internationals and then three T20 contests.

Two points will be on offer in each of the limited-overs matches. A Test win would have secured six points.

The first ODI will take place at Lord's on Tuesday.
