Australia Vs. England Only Women's Test, Canberra
The first women's Test held at Canberra's Manuka Oval provided an absorbing Test between Australia and England which, despite rain (which had also affected the T20 Internationals prior to the Test), ended with Australia one wicket and England twelve runs short of victory. Below are some of the statistics from the match.

  • The Australian first innings saw the seventh occasion of four (or more) Australian women scoring fifty in the same innings. They, along with India (at Paarl against South Africa in 2001-02), hold the record of most fifties in an innings, five, having performed the same feat against England at Taunton in 2019.
  • The Australian total of 337 for 9 declared is the second-lowest total to include four fifties. The only lower is their 303 for 5 against England at Harrogate in 1998.
  • Amy Jones became only the third wicket-keeper to effect six (or more) dismissals in an innings. The record of eight is held by Lisa Nye for England against New Zealand at New Plymouth in 1991-92. New Zealand's Bev Brentnall made six dismissals against South Africa at Johannesburg in 1971-72.
  • Alyssa Healy became the twenty-seventh woman cricketer, the seventh opener and third wicket-keeper, to record a pair.
  • Alyssa also became only the fifth woman cricketer to fall for a pair in exactly the same manner in both innings. She is, though, the first player to be dismissed with the help of a fielder, the others having been dismissed either bowled, lbw or run out in both innings.
  • The 169-run partnership between Meg Lanning and Rachael Haynes is the fourth-highest for the fourth wicket in Australia's history against all countries.
  • Katherine Brunt became the ninth England bowler to take five wickets in an innings against Australia in Australia.
  • For the second time in her career, Katherine took eight (or more) wickets in a match with both occasions being against Australia. There have been fifteen such occasions for England against all opposition, performed by ten players.
  • Katherine also became only the fourth England bowler, and tenth in total, to take 50 Test wickets.
  • Heather Knight's unbeaten 168 is the second-highest score by an England captain (and player) against Australia behind only Rachael Heyhoe Flint's 179 at The Oval in 1976.
  • Heather's score is therefore the highest by an England captain in Australia, surpassing Mollie Hide's unbeaten 124 at Sydney in 1948-49.
  • Heather's innings represented 56.57% of England's total, the fifth highest by any player, and the second-highest by a captain, in women's history. The highest (68.29%) is Enid Bakewell's unbeaten 112 out of 164 for England against Australia at Birmingham in 1979.
  • For only the fifth occasion for England against Australia, the second-highest scorer in a team's completed innings, and behind a centurion, was lower than fifty. Four of the occasions have seen the captain top-scoring with the century.
  • The Test saw only the second occasion in women's Test history that the opposing captains were their team's outright top scorers in the match. The only other occasion was between South Africa and England at Durban in 1960-61. There have been two other occasions where one captain has been the outright top scorer whilst the counterpart has been the joint-highest scorer of their team.
  • The 100-run partnership between Knight and Sophie Ecclestone is only the third for the ninth wicket in women's Tests. The first such occasion was for South Africa against New Zealand at Cape Town in 1971-72 whilst the last was for India against England at Bristol in 2021.
  • For only the second time in their Test history, seven Australian bowlers each took a wicket during the same innings. The only other occasion was against England at Worcester in 2009.
  • Heather Knight's 216 runs in the match is the most by any captain. She overtook the previous record of 191 by Rachael Heyhoe Flint at The Oval against Australia at The Oval in 1976.
  • In women's Tests, the finish was only the third where the side batting last finished on nine wickets down, and with a draw. The last occasion was between India and England at Hyderabad in 1995-96.
