After the recent ignominious defeat for the men's team Down Under, Captain Heather Knight and her England team are hoping to restore some pride as they take on the Aussies for the Women's Ashes. And Meg Lanning's team is standing in their way.

The perfect primer for the 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup in March, this multi-format series takes in three T20s, followed by one four-day Test match and three ODIs.

After first blood went to the Australians - in the form of a 9-wicket T20i thrashing, lit up by the awesome Tahlia McGrath - the next two were washed out. What followed was one of the greatest adverts for women's cricket in the form's history, with a remarkable Test match in Canberra that eventually ended in a nail-biting draw.

Follow our guide for all you need to know to watch a 2022 Women's Ashes live stream no matter where you are - and, perhaps best of all, fans in Australia can watch the Ashes free on TV on Channel 7. Kayo Sports is how to watch the Ashes online and on your mobile wherever you are.

How to watch the Women's Ashes from outside your country

Below we've got you covered with your official broadcasting options for major cricket loving countries (and the US!), but if you're outside your country of residence and try to start streaming Women's Ashes cricket via your local broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
