The women's Ashes scoring system is very different to the men's. Points are awarded over one Test, three one-days and three T20 matches. The most points are awarded for a Test victory but the spoils were shared as England and Australia drew at Wormsley cricket ground. England's Heather Knight was awared player of the match for hitting 157 runs.

Hopes of regaining the Ashes did not look good for England after the first one-day match at Lord's. England could not match Australia's 203, losing by 27 runs. Here they are looking dejected after going 4-2 down in the points race at the home of cricket.

But England need not have worried. They quickly turned their fortunes around during the second one-day match at Hove. They levelled out the series with an impressive 51-run win, and batswomen Edwards, Knight, Taylor and Greenway stood strong at the crease.

And the Rose Bowl in Southampton was to be the place of victory for England after they subjected Australia to another T20 loss. The Ashes victory came with the help of Lydia Greenway who rescued the hosts with an England T20 record of 80 not out off 64 balls after they had been reduced to 9-3. England now had an unbeatable 10-4 lead.

Both Australia's women and men teams have been beaten on their Ashes tours of England. But the Australian women's team can restore some pride in the final T20 match at Chester-le-Street before England travel to Australia in January 2014 for our next dose of Ashes action.
