Elliot wants more Tests to decide women Ashes series

Melbourne, Jan 14 (ANI): Australian women's cricket veteran Sarah Elliott wants more Test matches included in future women's Ashes series.

She said one Test isn't enough to truly test the mettle of the arch rivals England.

Australia is behind in the current Ashes series after crashing to a 61-run Test defeat to England at the WACA Ground on Monday.

Under the current format, the women's Ashes features one Test, three one-dayers and three Twenty20s, with the winner decided by the country who accumulates the most points.

A Test match win is worth six points, while two points are on offer for each one-dayer and T20, News.com.au reports.

With just 12 more points up for grabs, Australia need to win five of the six matches in the one-day format. (ANI)
