Cambridgeshire's Charlotte Edwards will once again lead the England women's cricket team when they take on Australia this summer.

Edwards has been named captain for all three formats of the Women's Ashes contests - 20 overs, 50 overs and one five-day Test Match, which starts on Sunday in Berkshire.

At the time when she made her England debut in 1995, Edwards was the youngest player ever to play for England. She is also the all-time leading scorer in women's one-day internationals.
