Interestingly, Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia is set to host a historic day-night Women’s Ashes Test for the first time. Earlier, the stadium hosted a Test match between AUS W and ENG W in 1935. Hence, it will be a historical game at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Also, the stadium will host a Women’s Test after 1949. Also, the stadium will observe a Day-Night Women’s Test for the first time in history. Speaking about the Test match at MSG, Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry said it’s an amazing opportunity for the Australia women to play at such an iconic venue.

“It’s an amazing opportunity for the team to play at such an iconic Australian cricket venue and on such a big occasion like an Ashes series”. I think we all saw that fixture and thought what an amazing opportunity and how much possibility that also carries in terms of what it could do for the game,” Perry said.
