Women's Ashes: Dates, schedule, history & odds

The Women's Ashes between England and Australia first took place in 1934/35 and the 2023 series in England produced an entertaining 8-8 draw.

The Ashes rivals are two of the strongest international teams in women's cricket and they are set to meet again for a multi-format series, featuring a Test match, one-day internationals and Twenty20 internationals, in 2024/25.

Women's Ashes Dates

The Women's Ashes are scheduled for the Australian summer of 2024/25. The tour dates are yet to be confirmed but the matches are likely to take place in January and February 2025.

Women's Ashes Venues

The 2024/25 Women's Ashes will be held in Australia. The series venue alternates between England, where the 2023 Ashes were held, and Australia.

The venues for the 2024/25 Women's Ashes matches are yet to be announced but in 2021/22, the last time the series took place Down Under, the three T20 internationals were at the Adelaide Oval.

Canberra's Manuka Oval hosted the Test match and the first ODI, while the final two games of the 50-over series took place at Melbourne's Junction Oval.

Women's Ashes Format

The 2024/25 Women's Ashes will be made up of one Test match, three T20 internationals and three ODIs.

This has been the format of the series between England Women and Australia Women since 2013 and the winners are determined by a points system.

Four points are awarded to the winners of the Test match, with two points apiece in the event of a draw. In the ODI and T20 series, the winners of each game receive two points and the teams get one each for a tie or a no result. 

Women's Ashes How to watch

The TV broadcasting deals will be confirmed nearer the time, but in the 2023 Women's Ashes the Test match, three Twenty20 internationals and three ODIs were shown live on Sky Sports Cricket, Main Event and Mix. 

Women's Ashes History

The 2024/25 series will be the 26th time that England and Australia have competed in the Women's Ashes. The inaugural contest was a three-match Test series in Australia in 1934/35, which was won 2-0 by England.

The first 18 Women's Ashes series featured only Test matches. However, in 2013, a multi-format system was introduced and since then each series has comprised one Test match, three ODIs and three T20 internationals.

England won the first two series under the new format, in 2013 and 2013/14, but Australia triumphed in three of the next five and the 2017/18 and 2023 Women's Ashes ended in 8-8 draws.

Australia have the advantage in the overall Women's Ashes record, winning 10 series to England's six with nine draws.

The Aussies' star all-rounder Ellyse Perry has scored the most runs (1,693) and taken the most wickets (59) in Women's Ashes matches since the launch of the multi-format system in 2013.
