Watch- Former Australia Cricketer Wins Hearts With A Kind Gesture During Ashes Test

The Ashes Test between Australia and England Women was a nail-biter that finished in a draw. The last day was super-competitive with both Australia and England having an opportunity to win the game.

As the match was paused due to rain on Day 3 at the Manuka Oval, some kids in the stands were seen playing cricket with a plastic bottle instead of a bat. The former Australia women’s cricketer turned commentator Melanie Jones, won hearts when she handed out a brand new Kookaburra bat to the youngsters. She even participated in the game with the girls. The video of Mel’s kind gesture has gone viral on social media.

Australia And England Settle For a Draw

Talking about the match, Australia declared their second innings at 216/7 to give England Women a target of 257 in 48 overs. The England batters accepted the challenge and came really close to the total. In the final two overs of the day, England needed 13 runs and Australia needed one wicket. All four outcomes were possible.

It ended up being one of the most dramatic drawn matches ever in Test cricket as Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone ensured that England does not lose the final wicket.

Here are some of the twitter reactions to the epic match:

The match bolsters the case for future women’s Test matches to be played over five days instead of four, as it can help in obtaining more results in Women’s Tests thereby increasing the interest of spectators to watch these games. Earlier in June 2021, the thrilling one-off Test between India and England had also ended in a draw at Bristol.

Australia and England will now face off in a three-match ODI series starting from February 3.
