One of those cricket matches for which high hype should be there among the fans and this match was the women’s test match between England and Australia. Yes! You read it right, hype for the women’s cricket match because this match was a nail bitting one till the end which kept the live watchers at the corner of their seats.
Chasing 257 to win England made the highest 4th innings score in the women’s test history! Australia took 9 wickets in a session. Every single result was possible in the last and the final over. Both the teams deserved to win the match and Neither of these two deserved to lose.
The end was as thrilling as the storyline of the game till now as it ended as one of the most remembarable draws in the history of the cricket. It was just the 3rd time in the women’s test history that a team was 9 down in the 4th innings of a test match and it ended in a draw, and the closest the chasing team came in a drawn game.
