Aussies women eye their own 1948 ‘Invincibles’ tag

Australia Women are eying to go undefeated in the entire women’s Ashes series and regain their own 1948 ‘Invincible’ tag. With only the last leg of the multi-format Ashes series left, Aussies aim to remain unbeaten in the upcoming three T20matches. Australia have already retained the Ashes with an 8-2 lead after winning all three ODIs and drawing the Test.

Australia has not been able to achieve the unbeaten run ever since the introduction of multi-format women’s Ashes in 2013. When asked about his team’s aspirations on achieving Sir Donald Bradman’s famed Invincibles, Head coach Matthew Mott said, “It’s certainly something we’ve talked about. We’re still in a position to do it, but without getting in front of ourselves I think Chelmsford’s a big game. England obviously will try to draw the series and we know what that felt like last time so we’re very keen to avoid that”.

Australia had lost last two T20s of 2017-18 Ashes in Australia, allowing England to tie the series 8-8, which they claimed as a victory despite the Aussies retaining the trophy as the holders.
