Sold Out: England Women’s Ashes Clash


The stage is set for England Women to take on Australia in Friday’s Vitality Women’s IT20 match at The Cloudfm County Ground. Heather Knight’s team will be looking to continue their unbeaten record at Chelmsford and it will be played in front of a sold-out crowd as supporters have snapped up tickets to support their country in the Ashes!

Essex County Cricket Club Chairman said: “This is fantastic news for the Club and Women’s cricket, and I’m sure both England and Australia will be looking forward to walking out in front of a full house on Friday evening.

“The women’s game continues to go from strength-to-strength, and we take great pride in our commitment to developing the participation of Women and Girls cricket across the region.

“This is only boosted by the opportunities of hosting two high-class sides and we are looking forward to a great match on Friday as England Women look to continue their unbeaten record at The Cloudfm County Ground.”
