- First ODI: England 267-8 beat Australia 263-8 by two wickets
- Captain’s unbeaten 75 seals win to level points tallies at 6-6
England moved a step closer to regaining the Ashes on Wednesday in a nerve-shredding two-wicket win at Bristol, brought up with 11 balls to spare.
Heather Knight somehow shepherded her team across the line in their chase of 264, hitting the winning boundary through cover-point and finishing unbeaten on 75, after England had stuttered nervously to 235 for eight.
