The challenge of their teams to regain the Ashes:-
“Next summer will be huge for the women of England and the men of England. There are few more special events in English sport than a home Ashes series and I know Heather and Ben. And their teams will be excited and inspired by the challenge of regaining the Ashes.
“I am particularly pleased that we have announced the England men’s and England women’s fixtures for the first time. Meaning supporters can enter the ballot or register an interest for any fixture on the same day.
June and July will be very special months for cricket in this country. As there is talk of two Ashes series happening together.
“The women’s game continues to grow. And we have clearly entered phase two in terms of demand for the elite women’s sport. We have seen record numbers in stadiums for The Hundred’s second season.
We now want to give more fans a chance to see the women of England in person next summer. As they compete for the Ashes on home soil.
