  1. Post update

    And that, folks, is that.

    After a quite frankly ridiculous final match, the Women's Ashes series ends at 8-8, with Australia retaining the Ashes.

    We'll be back tomorrow for the men's series, which kicks off at 00:00 GMT. See you then.

  2. 'I wouldn't be a good captain without these girls'

    More from Heather Knight: "I've really enjoyed it. I want to lead from the front and its important I go out there and show the team how I want to play. I keep wanting to improve. I wouldn't be a good captain without those girls and the way they perform.

    And as for her toughest moment in the series? "Trying to get Ellyse Perry out in the Test match!"

  3. 'It was disappointing'

    Australia captain Rachael Haynes, speaking to BT Sport: "I certainly thought it was well within our grasp to win the match. It was disappointing. I guess it's true, catches win matches, and we put a few down tonight.

    "Beth has been outstanding. Shes been hitting everywhere. She's worked extremely hard on her game. For her to produce in international cricket is really exciting."

    Beth Mooney still looks absolutely crestfallen as Rachael Haynes goes up to collect the Women's Ashes trophy.

  5. Player of the series - Heather Knight

    The player of the series is the England captain, Heather Knight.

    She says: "I didn't start the T20 series how I wanted but to finish like that and play second fiddle to Danni was brilliant. What a series it's been. Beth Mooney was outstanding. For her to be on the losing side, it shouldn't be that way. It's been a long seven weeks but to come away and finish like that, we can be proud."

  6. Player of the match - Danni Wyatt

    It could have gone either way, but the player of the match is Danni Wyatt.

    Speaking to BT Sport, she said: "I've been in the nets for five weeks so I was ready! It's sujrreal - I stll can't believe what happened."

  7. 'There is a lot of fight in this team'

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    England captain Heather Knight, speaking to TMS: "What a game it was. I thought they had too many, but there is a hell of a lot of fight in this team and to level at 8-8 makes me really proud.

    "We lost a few early wickets but it was a belter of a pitch so boundaries were easy to come by. I was just trying to get Danni on strike.

    "We’re gutted we didn’t win the Ashes but to draw the series is the next best thing. It was a great innings from Beth Mooney. It’s tough for her to be on the losing side. What a game and what a spectacle for women’s cricket."

  8. Post update

    I can only imagine how many journos were furiously rewriting their copy in those final few overs.

    A quick look at the stats: Wyatt's century came from 57 balls, with 13 boundaries and two sixes.

    Beth Mooney hit her 117 from 70 balls, with 19 boundaries and one six.

  9. 'A special feeling'

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    England's Danni Wyatt, speaking to TMS: "I tried a bit too hard in the first six overs, I lost my shape a little bit. But I backed myself and swung hard and it paid off. I was quite lucky, but you have to make it count when someone drops you, and I made it count today.

    "To contribute to a record chase is a special feeling. Heather batted really well- she backed herself and hit the ball in her areas. Outstanding by the skipper.

    "It was hard sitting out for the ODIs and the Test match so I had to make the T20s count."

  10. Post update

    I feel like I need a lie down.

    England are all smiles as they wait for the presentation. Someone's just told Danni Wyatt that she has indeed been part of a record run chase.

  11. Post update

    Dearie me. I didn't see that coming when we were six overs in.

    Two centuries. A record run chase. A tied Women's Ashes series. What a boost for England, especially with the Women's World Twenty20 around the corner.

  12. 'Remarkable'

    Charles Dagnall

    BBC Test Match Special

    One of the most remarkable victories you will ever see. We have been given a real treat- a stunning night of cricket.

  13. Post update

    So, England win the mini-T20 series two matches to one, and draw the Women's Ashes 8-8.

    Australia will receive the Women's Ashes trophy tonight but they look slightly stunned by proceedings. Beth Mooney is near tears.

  14. ENGLAND WIN BY FOUR WICKETS

    Eng 181-6

    Won with a boundary! What a run chase!

    England have recovered from 30-3 to pull off the highest ever run chase in women's T20I history. What a match.

    Isa Guha

    Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

    She was going for the glory shot, Katherine Brunt.

  16. WICKET

    Brunt c Perry b Kimmince 5 (Eng 177-6)

    Gone!

    Ellyse Perry comes across on the edge of the circle and snaffles up the catch that Katherine Brunt offered up. Two runs from seven balls needed...

  17. Eng 177-5

    England need 2 runs from 8 balls

    A boundary! Katherine Brunt didn't quite know where that had gone but she swung her arms hard, the ball to a thick outside edge and away it went to the ropes!

    Rachael Haynes comes in for a chat with Kimmince while Brunt surveys the field...

  18. Eng 173-5

    England need 6 from 9 balls

    New batter Fran Wilson gets a wide first up but she thrashes her arms and the next delivery goes high into the air - but it's safe! Three fielders converge and can't get near it.

    Six runs from nine balls...

  19. 'Can Brunt and Wilson keep their heads?'

    Isa Guha

    Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

    When you are up against it, who do you call upon? Your wicket-taker. And that is Ellyse Perry. Could she have come on earlier?

    Two new batters, now, in a pressure situation. Can Katherine Brunt and Fran Wilson keep their heads?

  20. WICKET

    Wyatt b Kimmince 100 (Eng 171-5)

    Is there a twist in the tale?!

    Danni Wyatt takes a step to the side, going for that lofted drive that has served her so well, and misses. Delissa Kimmince doesn't, and the ball clatters into the stumps.

    Wyatt walks off to a standing ovation. England still need eight runs from 11 balls...
