England are set to host Australia and Windies in June-July next year ahead of the fourth season of the Women’s Super League. England recently lost to Australia in the finals of the ICC Women’s World T20 in Windies after beating India in the semi-finals.
They will host a total of 6 T20Is, 6 ODIs and one Test during the 2 month period across 8 grounds in the country. The Test match which will take place in Taunton will be a part of the Ashes which will again be based on a multi format point system.
They will start the season with the ODIs against Windies which will be a part of the ICC Women’s Championship, with qualifications for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 at stake.
The Kia Super League will follow the Women’s Ashes with Finals Day taking place at Hove on September 1.
Clare Connor, Director of England Women’s Cricket said, “We are thrilled to host world class women’s teams on our shores in the summer of 2019. As we have just seen in front of record crowds at the ICC Women’s World T20 in West Indies, both West Indies and Australia will be sure to provide a great challenge for us as well as skillful, entertaining cricket for the growing fan-base for the women’s game.”
“Every Ashes summer is a privilege for us all to be a part of and we’re looking forward to collaborating with all our venues to ensure we deliver high quality match-day experiences throughout the summer of 2019.”
