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.

England women's cricketers could still reach the final of the World Cup after beating South Africa in their Super Six clash.

The side captained by Cambridgeshire's Charlotte Edwards' side destroyed South Africa by seven wickets in Cuttack. South Africa all out for 77 in 29.3.

Charlotte Edwards' defending World champions needed to win well if they were to set up a vital clash with New Zealand in their final game.

England reached their target with 40.3 overs to spare at the Barbati Stadium, closing the net run-rate gap on a New Zealand side they face on Wednesday.
