England Women v Australia Women in ODI Ashes 2023: how to watch on UK TV, live stream details and squad news
and live on Freeview channel 276
England Women lost the second ODI fixture by just three runs, meaning Australia are able to retain the Ashes. There is still one more match left to play, and England have plenty left to fight for as they look to secure both the T20 and ODI series.
This is now Heather Knight’s fourth unsuccessful attempt at winning back the turn but it has been one of the closest multi-format series and arguably the most dramatic competition to date, from the sell-out crowds to going toe-to-toe with Australia after years of agony.
“It has been a ridiculous series, hasn’t it? We are still going to Taunton with the aim of an ODI series. We’re obviously frustrated we haven’t been able to keep this momentum and achieve the great escape, but I’m proud of the fight and the character we’ve shown.
“It’s all about learning, and lot of young players will learn a lot of things from today which is only going to be a positive thing in the future. The crowds have been awesome, the way they’ve got on board with us has really given us that added impetus when we’ve really needed it.”
