Lydia Greenway has echoed captain Charlotte Edwards’ calls for England women to play more Tests, following their retention of the Ashes.
England secured the draw they need to keep hold of the trophy they won in 2005 and first defended in 2007 - all in one-off Tests.
Greenway, who would like to see future Ashes series played over several Tests, told ECBtv: “It’s a massive challenge for us and I think, like Lottie said at the end there, it would be good if we could play a few more of them. Especially for the Ashes because they’re obviously a massive thing.
“If we could play some more that would be good because I just think it’s a different format of the game and it’s a good test for us.”
England’s Ashes defence caps off five months of unprecedented success that also saw Edwards’ side win the 50-over World Cup in Australia during March and the World Twenty20 at home last month.
Opening batter Greenway believes England’s success is well deserved: the product of so much hard work under coach Mark Lane.
“It’s been brilliant. Obviously starting with the World Cup, the one-day World Cup, and then the Twenty20 and to keep the Ashes obviously on home soil is just brilliant. It’s been a really, really long time coming for us so everyone’s really pleased.”
