Commonwealth Bank Ashes Series | 2nd ODI
February 6, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
Don’t miss the most treasured contest on the cricket calendar – the Ashes. In cricket’s fiercest rivalry, Australia and England will face off in the second ODI of the Commonwealth Bank Ashes Series at Junction Oval. Tickets on sale now.
1934 marked the year of the first women’s Test series between Australia and England, but it wasn’t until 1998 that the contest was officially named the women’s Ashes, a moment honoured by the burning of a signed bat, a copy of the Women’s Cricket Association constitution and the rules book, the ashes of which were sealed in a 300-year-old yew tree trophy. Originally, the women’s Ashes was won and lost over a series of Test matches. However, since 2013 the competition has been decided over a series of ODI, T20 and Test matches. The Australian women’s cricket team won the 2019 Ashes series in England, retaining the trophy.
