• Australia’s Ashes campaign against the English begins at Canberra’s Manuka Oval

The summer of cricket continues on Seven with the Women’s Ashes Test Match as the Australian women’s cricket team continue their quest to secure the Ashes against England.

They take on the English in a blockbuster test at Canberra’s Manuka Oval over the next four days on Channel Seven, starting Thursday.

Led by Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy they will battle for an indisputable six-point lead over England, to secure the ultimate prize.

Only six points remain on offer after this Test in the three-match one day international (ODI) series.

Seven’s coverage will again be led by cricket’s number one commentary team, which for the Women’s Ashes features Alison Mitchell, Alister Nicholson and Andy Maher in lead commentary.

They are joined by experts Lisa Sthalekar, Holly Ferling, Kirby Short, Emma Inglis, Brad Hodge, Trent Copeland and Isabella Westbury.

Former Australian women’s captain Lisa, who enjoyed a stellar international career from 2001 to 2013, said she is anticipating an exciting finish to the series.

“England is a side that believes it can beat Australia. Its players know they can compete against the best and Australia is the best at the moment,” she said.

“There is so much at stake, not only for each team but also the individual players in each squad. The Test in among this Ashes series is one that the players lift for. It is a chance as a team and as an individual to create lasting memories in the hardest format.”

Managing director Seven Melbourne and head of network sport, Lewis Martin, said: “There’s no better way to celebrate Australia’s most popular sporting team, our national women’s cricket team, than live and free on Seven. The Test against England, following last week’s T20 matches, is bound to be a great contest.

“There is still so much to enjoy during Seven’s summer of cricket, with the thrilling women’s Ashes series and the explosive Big Bash League finals.”
