England Women will play a day/night match at Chelmsford as they step up their preparations for the 2017/18 Ashes series.
The match will see England Women play an inter-team game at The Cloudfm County Ground from Tuesday 19th–Thursday 21st September.
The format of the game will mirror the England Men’s day/night Test match against West Indies, with play during the three-day game set to begin at 2pm and a pink ball in use. England Women will take part in their first day/night Test during the Ashes, at the North Sydney Oval.
The teams will be made up of the England Women squad plus representatives from the Essex Performance Programme squad and will again showcase women’s sport in the region.
The match is not ticketed, so tickets are not available in advance. For full details about the game contact Essex Cricket via 01245 254010 or e-mail email@example.com.
