Women's Ashes: England holds on for draw against Australia

McGrath took care of Winfield with a swerving yorker to pin her LBW, but ten overs earlier it was Wellington who provided the real highlight of the day with her interpretation of Shane Warne's "Ball of the Century". Expectations were suitably low when they arrived in Queensland, and they surprised everyone by winning the first Test.

The five-test men's Ashes series begins November 23 in Brisbane. "He should be right in that 7-10 day time frame, he's fairly confident".

"In this match we got the length a lot better and put pressure on the opposition".

James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes appear to be England s front-line pace attack heading into the series but Ball and Craig Overton are pressing their claims.

A 20-year-old Sussex left-arm bowler, George Garton, has been called into the England squad for their third and last warm-up match starting in Townsville on Wednesday - in the absence of anyone else who is fast and fit. "It's just finding that rhythm over here and I'd prefer to be over-cooked than under-cooked going to Brisbane".

Cook s scratchy start to his Ashes tour continued when he made 32 from 85 balls in the second innings in Adelaide.
