Ashes, a warm-up for the one-dayers?

No, Freddie Flintoff didn't play the test match of his life with such intensity just to get warmed up for an upcoming one-day series. It is the Ashes of the "fairer gender" that am talking about.
England's captain Clare Connor justifies why, for the women, the real thing is the one-dayers which, in the men's game, are the Panda Pop to Test cricket's Coke. "It's on the one-day game that we are judged," she says, and even hints darkly that plans may be afoot to abolish women's Tests.

On a related note - Men or women, the Aussie tail-enders are tough. The women were 115-7 at one stage, and then their tail wagged (and wagged) to take them to 355. Cheers to the tough Aussie spirit.
