Team selection and choice of surface to play on made with the hope of batting first and making a big score before bowling Australia out twice on a deteriorating track.  Hard work once Australia win the toss and batted.

To be fair I don't think they have much choice. They have to win the Test to stay alive after getting thumped in all the ODI's.

Best way to produce a result st Taunton is to play on a dry used wicket that's going to turn lots. Absolutely no point playing on a new fresh road where it ends in a draw.

Agreed, it was really a factual statement rather than a criticism.  Australia have been fairly ruthless today in ensuring that England can't win the series

I think the simple fact is this series is showing how far we have fallen behind Australia by in my opinion just stagnating with the same and not moving forward in Women's Cricket.

I agree. The women have a problem in that they have/are producing less high quality payers but more bits and pieces types. A few are also massively over rated and it all feels way to safe for this group

It has been an entertaining battle.  Losing most of day 2 to rain in a 4 day match has all but killed any chance of a result.  I think Aus still had an eye on bowling England out twice for the win.  Despite losing Beaumont early, Jones and Knight started aggressively and were well on top of some loose Aus bowling early, clearly intent on a win.  Since the bowling tightened up, the intent has disappeared.  Brunt's 15 from 75 and Shrubsole 1* from 36 tells the story.

Certainly hard to see a result from here, but stranger things have happened.

Draw, and Australia retain the ashes! 
England batted with a lot more purpose today, Sciver went on with it deserving a ton, but fell short.  Declaring shortly after avoiding the follow on showed that they were still in looking for the win, but there was never going to be enough time.
I thought Aus might still go hard early, declare and try for the win, but losing 3 early wickets put an end to that.  Perry again superb with 70 not out, to confirm her as player of the match.

Aus would be pleased with their three debutantes.  Molineux got runs and picked up 4/95, Gardiner got a wicket, and after a nervous first spell, it was great to see Tayla Vlaeminck bowling with genuine pace and agression.  Her couple overs to Marsh were superb - one to watch for the future.

Overall, a great contest and you have to wonder why the women don't get more test matches.  Full points to Channel 9 for their live coverage of this series.  Now, onto the T20's!

Australia have a domestic structure in place which will see that gap widening.  The question is whether the ECB is prepared to put in place the investment that would be required to produce a pool of players sufficient to compete with Australia (and the wider question as to whether it is sufficiently rewarding to convince good athletes to consider  a career in cricket in the first place)

England again look toothless and a weak attack. Cross, ecclestone very poor and shrubsole/brunt look very unfit

Some of the blast games have or will be just as one sided as its the format tbf. Plus, its good to show womens stuff a side it raises its profile.

Sadly, this game is pointless and englsnd have nothing to play for

poor run


Games over, you are not chasing it. Just bat out the overs. No point getting skittled
