The only Women’s Ashes test is about to get underway and there is everything at stake for the home team. The England women’s team can take some heart from the manner in which their men’s team managed to win a series of knockout matches to lift the cricket world cup.
Now, they have the opportunity to do the same starting with the Ashes test match in Taunton.
The Australia women’s team is much better placed. They dominated the three ODI matches that preceded this test match and are just one win away from winning the women’s Ashes series. The way that the women’s Ashes works is that there are specific points allotted for every match in the tour and so a win in any format counts towards the whole total.
Of course, knowing the Australian women’s cricket team we can be certain of one thing. There is going to be no holding back just because they are in a strong position in the series. They want to win every single match and dominate the series.
England women are up against what could be one of the toughest challenges they have faced in recent times. They have a deficit of six points thanks to the three losses in the ODI series. The test match carries four points followed by 3 T20 international, all of which carry two points.
A win here will give England a very good chance of making a comeback into the series while a loss will hand over the Ashes to Australia.
The manner in which England has been dominated so far does not bode well for it heading into this all-important test match. England’s batting has been very poor and unable to withstand the sustained attack from the Aussies.
Captain Heather Knight will have to lead from the front if England has to have any chance of winning. England may choose to change around its batters for this important match. We think that Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont may end up opening the batting for England.
This is a crucial match and experience may count for more although Jones has also just scored 115 against Australia A so this is going to be a tough selection call.
Fran Wilson, Laura Marsh, and Sarah Taylor all are likely to find a place in the team as well.
The bowling is going to be led by Anya Shrubsole and Katherine Brunt. The pair of them will share the new ball in all likelihood and be instrumental in getting past the strong Australian lineup. This is probably the last Ashes series for Katherine Brunt and she is going to be keen to leave on a high.
A mix of all-rounders and Sophie Ecclestone are likely to be England’s attack although the final composition will vary as per the surface. England is in a tough spot and facing one of the formidable lineups ever assembled in women’s cricket.

Australia won the ODI series 3-0 but the fact that would be scoring all England supporters is that the team was far from its best in the first two matches. It was only in the third match when Ellyse Perry ripped the heart out of England’s batting where Australia’s dominance looked complete.
We have not seen what the Australian batting is truly capable of. The Australia women’s cricket team is packed with formidable batters and they will exploit any weakness that the English team shows them.
Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning, Nicole Bolton, Ellyse Perry, Rachel Haynes, and Beth Mooney are all ranked among the best batters in women’s cricket. To have them all in one side and be backed up by some very capable lower-order batting is almost unfair.
Ash Gardner, Jess Jonassen, and Delissa Kimmence are all capable batters and can be regarded as all-rounders. There is no doubt in our mind that Australia women have the stronger batting and it will take something disastrous for this batting lineup to fail twice at the hands of the England bowling.
Australia has chosen to add Sophie Molineux to the squad. She is uncapped in the longest format of the game and even though she has impressed in white-ball cricket, we don’t think she is going to be included in the playing eleven just yet.
Megan Schutt and Ellyse Perry will lead the bowling for Australia. Perry utilized the English conditions magnificently and was near unplayable during the ODI series. England may think its best chance of success against Australia’s batting lies on a green seaming wicket but they have Ellyse Perry to worry about as well.
Tayla Vlaeminck is expected to make her debut in this test match and lend some more teeth to the bowling.
Australia women smell blood in the water and will only have attack on their minds.
Nicole Bolton, Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Rachael Haynes, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Jess Jonassen, Sophie Molineux, Megan Schutt, Tayla Vlaeminck.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bowl first to take advantage of any movement that might be there. Days 2 and 3 are also expected to be overcast so losing the toss may not be a huge disadvantage.

The only Ashes test match 2019 is going to be played at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. The weather forecast for the test match is mixed. A sunny day awaits us on the first day but there is a lot of rain predicted on the second and third day. The fourth and fifth day may also seem some showers but the chances of rain are much lower.
The pitch at Taunton is going to be green and aid seam bowling. England needs a win to stay alive in the women’s Ashes 2019 and that is only possible with a win here. They will be hoping to nip the Australian batters out early and then adapt to the conditions better themselves.
England may have home advantage and all the motivation to win but we think they are up against a far superior opponent. Not only has Australia women dominated them in the ODI series, but they also possess all the tools to be successful in any condition. We think Australia women are going to wrap up the women’s Ashes 2019 at Taunton.
Back Australia women to win.
