England Women will face an uphill task when it takes on Australia Women in the first ODI of the Women’s Ashes at the County Ground in Bristol on Wednesday.
England hasn’t beaten the mighty Aussies in the 50-over format since October 2017. Australia has won the last eight ODIs played between the sides.
However, England could take confidence from the fact that it last beat Australia at home at the same venue - County Ground in Bristol - in July 2017. It has since lost three consecutive ODIs against Australia at home.

England will also have the daunting task of breaking Australia’s stupendous winning streak in ODIs. Australia has won its last 15 ODIs and last lost a game in September 2021, against India. Incidentally, that defeat had ended Australia’s record 26-match winning streak in the format.
