There are now just 50 days to go until the start of the 2023 Ashes series.
This summer, England Men and Women will battle it out against their Australian counterparts on UK soil for the two Ashes trophies.
The Men’s series will be contested across five Test matches in June and July, while the winner of the Women’s Ashes will once again be decided by performances in a multi-format series encompassing a five-day Test, three IT20s and three ODIs.
The potentially deciding fixture in the Women’s series is the ODI at the Cooper Associates County Ground on July 18th, which was the first of the Ashes fixtures to sell out.
If you were lucky enough to secure tickets for this match, congratulations. You will be a part of cricketing history!

England Women have a long history at Somerset County Cricket Club and made their debut at the Cooper Associates County Ground in 1997 against South Africa in an ODI which saw a young Charlotte Edwards make the first of her nine ODI hundreds. Since that day the England team have regularly returned to First Class cricket’s most South Westerly outpost.
In 2009 the home of Somerset County Cricket Club also officially became the ECB’s Home of Women’s Cricket. This coincided with the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 tournament, which saw Somerset stage all 12 group match fixtures in the competition. Since then the women’s game has gathered enormous support and momentum and from a logistical point of view it made sense for the England team to relocate away from the rural South West. However, Somerset still consider ourselves to be the Spiritual Home of the women’s game.
