    Yeah exactly. No pace to work with, means harder to get away when the battings getting on top.

    Anyway, back on topic - what a phenomenal knock by Perry. She's an absolute freak by any measure.

    Superstar double ton from Perry

    shame the test will end up a draw by the looks, one day left

    which would mean 1 win from the remaining 3 t20 games the aussies retain the ashes

    womens cricket rarely play test matches

    Meg Lanning made her test debut almost 8 years ago, played only 3 tests all against the poms
    Elysse Perry made her TEST debut about 10 years ago, played 6 tests (94 ODI and 82 t20)
    All those tests against the poms as well

    Bulk of womens international cricket is ODI and t20's

    Only 2 wickets all day and a draw coming up. Should win at least one of the T20's but they could have retained the Ashes today.

    Not the way England batted they couldn't. Fantastic final day batting, they just dug in and wouldn't go away

    I think we'll be ok, the women have bigger balls than the men!

    So we won the Ashes last night by winning the first T20. not that you'd know, really doesn't get much coverage.

    coverage? it was televised live,

    only the test wasn't televised, the 6 other games were/are.

    The 2nd t20 live on 9HD from 230pm today as a matter of fact...
