Kent and England captain Charlotte Edwards is looking forward to the Kia Women’s Test match in Canterbury next month after Australia won the third and final Royal London ODI series.

Edwards and county colleagues Laura Marsh and Lydia Greenway will be hoping to feature on their home ground as the Kia Test will be played at the Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence from Tuesday 11to Friday 14August.

Four Ashes series points will be awarded to the winner of the Test match and two points will be awarded to each side in the event of a draw.

Edwardssaid: “It is always disappointing to lose, but there are a lot of positives that we can take away from these opening three matches of this Women’s Ashes series.

"We started brilliantly on Tuesday in Taunton, demonstrating the intensity, standard and brand of cricket that we want to play.

"Unfortunately we have been a bit inconsistent and ultimately outplayed during the last two matches and Australia have shown why they are the current world champions in this format.

“We now have a few days off to re-charge, before joining back up as a squad at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough to prepare for the Kia Women’s Test match.

"We love playing Test cricket – it is a format that suits our style, and we will of course be looking to come back strongly. With four points on offer to the winner of the Test, this Women’s Ashes series is still wide open – there is a long way to go yet."

For the first time in the history of television broadcast, Sky Sports will provide live ball-by-ball coverage of the Kia Women’s Test match.

England will be looking to replicate their heroic performance in the last Women’s Ashes Test at the WACA in 2014, when they secured a memorable 61 run victory on the final day.

The England Test squad will be announced later this week.

Australia take on Englandat The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrencein the only Women's Ashes Test Match as part of an extended Canterbury Week this summer.
