Melbourne:

Cricket organizers in Australia and England are changing the way the women's Ashes series will be decided, with limited-overs internationals and Twenty20 matches counting for points along with the test matches.

Like the men's series, the women's Ashes has traditionally been decided only on Test match results. The women's series starting Aug. 11 in England will include one Test, three one-dayers and three T20 matches. The winners of the test match will receive six points, while winners of the shorter-form matches will receive two points.

Cricket Australia senior manager Belinda Clark says the new format "acknowledges the past, embraces the present and takes a bold step towards the future."

Australia and England have played women's test cricket since 1934.
