2013 Women's Ashes Series - Format

The 2013 Women's Ashes Series will comprise one Test match, three NatWest Women's one-day internationals and three NatWest Women's International Twenty20 matches.

The combined results of those games will decide the winner of the Women's Ashes.

It will be calculated by allocating points to each format - the winners of the Test will be awarded six points; two points to the winners of each of the limited-overs matches, all of which is explained in the table below. The team that accrues the most points across all three formats will win the Women's Ashes Series.

ECB Chief Executive David Collier said: "The Women's Ashes Series coupled with the Men’s Ashes Series will provide two exciting back-to-back series commencing this summer in England and continuing in Australia this winter.

"The innovative format for the Women's Ashes will ensure the widest possible interest in these series and ECB looks forward to a wonderful programme of cricket played by two of the leading women's teams in world cricket."

Head of England Women's Cricket, Clare Connor said: "The women's game has seen huge growth in interest and profile as a result of the limited-overs formats in recent years. The new Women's Ashes Series looks to combine this reality with the prestige and tradition of Test match cricket.

"We believe that this new multi-format series will gain significantly more profile and context than can be generated by playing a one-off Test match every couple of years. Rebranding the Women's Ashes to a multi-format series is an innovative way forward for players, spectators and the media and we look forward to a hard-fought contest spanning three weeks in August."
