Women's Ashes: England holds on for draw against Australia

Women's Ashes: England holds on for draw against Australia Women's Ashes: England holds on for draw against Australia

Sussex seamer George Garton will join the tourists in Australia after scans showed Ball strained a ligament while bowling in the warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI in Adelaide.

England held on for a draw in the one-off test during the women's Ashes series against Australia, a match that was memorable for Ellyse Perry's 213 not out for the hosts.

Yet in a worrying sign for England, the match also witnessed the Ashes holders lose four wickets for three runs and seven wickets for 47 during the second innings. Nevertheless, despite his uncertainty, England coach Trevor Bayliss has backed the young pacer to be fit and back in time to play the opening Test. Bayliss feels the injury is not as serious and he would recover within a week to be fir for the tour opener. "It was hard to take 20 wickets but we can only play in the conditions we're given".

"By all accounts the wicket in Townsville is a pretty good one". That's definitely what we will need throughout this Test series.

"It's the first time I have seen him up close over a number of overs", Bayliss said. "Obviously once the test series comes around, the intensity of that competition, hopefully that really kicks our batters into gear".

The five-test men's Ashes series begins November 23 in Brisbane.

There has been particular criticism of Alastair Cook - the opener made just 15 and 32 in Adelaide - with former Australia bowler Ryan Harris saying he looked "rusty", a description that Bayliss didn't dismiss.

"I'm sure he would have preferred to have scored a few, but a guy with that experience has been through periods (like that) before", he said. "He should be fine in seven to 10 days", Bayliss said.
