Women’s Ashes have been brought forward by a week to allow England and Australia to quarantine ahead of the World Cup.

A 10-day mandatory quarantine is required ahead of the 50-over World Cup, which takes place in New Zealand from 4 March.

The multi-format Ashes series was supposed to start with the test match in Canberra on January 27, but the competition now starts on January 20 with the first of three T20 internationals.

The second and third T20s will take place on January 22 and 23, respectively, before the test match is played on the original date from January 27 to 30.

The Ashes then conclude with the three one-day internationals on February 3, 6 and 8.

Australia are holders of Women’s Ashes after winning two and drawing one of the last three series in which England’s previous victory came back in 2014, in Australia.
