Holy heck, I thought England had no chance after Mooney's ton and losing early wickets, but they might actually pull this off!

Going to be a tight finish. :hide

Her or Moody for the player of the T20 series - all depending on the winning team, I suppose.

Unbelievable chase. Well done England. A drawn series - a fine result overall. :clap I reckon the men would take that...

The Aus men wouldn't.

You didn't get to either of these games, Fluffy? The weather certainly held up.

Remarkable match. Two terrific innings from Mooney (dead unlucky to be on the losing side after that !) and Wyatt (who probably won't be left out of the ODI side again in a hurry )... and , it has to be said , some pretty wonky fielding under pressure from the Australians. Record run chase from England despite a rotten start to their innings.

8-8 a fair result ; one "mini series " win each ; the Ashes holders retain the trophy after the one Test is drawn. Still reckon they should play more than one after traveling all that way...but unless they can get a better pitch to play on there wouldn't be much point...

Other than that one complaint a good series for the women's game :clap

excellent result for England. An excellent run chase and a good recovery to draw the series. Underlines how little there is between the 2 teams, I suppose. Australia retain the ashes and look good value for it. Congratulations all round

except that the WBBL starts soon, and some of the England women involved will have warmed up nicely for that

interesting article about Ellyse Perry. For so long in the shadow of Meg Lanning

a remarkable woman, it seems

Will the English BBL players go home first, I wonder? It seems a long way to travel, but might be second nature to them

Yes, I got to Sunday's game.

A good end to what has been an entertaining series. A funny one in a way - the scoreline will show a close-fought series, as many of us predicted, but England never really looked like winning back the Ashes. On the other hand, to come back twice from 4 points down, and to draw the test after going so far behind, shows great application and character, so credit to them for that. Australia lacked a bit of ruthlessness, never shown more than with 4(!) dropped catches last night. Two were absolute sitters for the keeper, and were very poor drops indeed.

I did feel sorry for Beth Mooney, who was practically in tears at the end of the game. She did not deserve to be on the losing side after that innings.

A good year for women's cricket in general - I have become something of a convert, as you can probably tell. Judging by the crowds attending the series here and the World Cup in England, I'm not the only one. The WBBL is already being promoted too. Let's hope for more good cricket in future.

One final thought, and this applies to the men's game too - I know this will never change, given the weight of history and tradition, but given the overwhelming advantage in modern cricket of playing at home, maybe it would be fairer if in the event of a draw, the trophy went to the away side, regardless of who holds it? Still, that's one of the idiosyncrasies of the game that we love :)

nice idea, but the non-holders have to win them back, which is right, I think.

Agree completely about the women's game. I've been a convert for a couple of years. Standard is pretty decent, I think, at least with some nations. I enjoy the women's football more than the men's these days, if I'm honest.
