Like the Men’s Ashes, England’s and Australia’s women’s teams will face each other in the Women’s Ashes 2023.
The multi-format series is all set to start with a one-off Test match from June 22 to June 26. Unlike previous four-day Test matches, this Test at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, will be played over five days.
The month-long series also consists of three T20Is and three ODIs. The Edgbaston, the Oval, and Lord’s will host the three T20Is. While the three ODIs will take place at Bristol, Southampton, and Taunton.
Since the 2013 edition, the winner has been decided on a points system. So how does the point system work?

Point System in Women’s Ashes
The Women’s Ashes is a points-based series, unlike the Men’s Ashes. The team that scores the most points at the end of the series will claim the trophy.
The team winning the Test will get 4 points, while teams will share 2 points each in case of a draw. A win in the limited overs match will earn 2 points, and a tie, no result, or an abandoned game will get teams 1 point each.
