England wins sole Test of women's Ashes series by 51 runs

Sydney, Jan 13 : The England women's cricket team has defeated their Australian counterparts by 61 runs in the sole Test of women's Ashes series on Monday at the WACA Ground.

Chasing 185 for victory, Australia was in trouble at 5-57 entering the fourth and final day and although a 44-run partnership between Ellyse Perry (31) and Sarah Elliott (29) breathed life into their run chase as they moved to 5-99, but Perry's dismissal sparked a collapse of 3-7 as Australia were bowled out for 123 shortly before lunch.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, England speedster Anya Shrubsole was the hero on the final day, snaring three wickets, including the key scalp of Perry, to put the Southern Stars to the sword.

The Test victory gave England six points in the multi-format series, which also features three one-dayers and three Twenty20s and Australia needs to win five of the remaining six matches to regain the urn with each one-dayer and T20 match only worth two points, the report added.
