SYDNEY: Australia will host England in the first women's day-night cricket Test as part of a multi-format Ashes series later this year.      

The women's teams from Australia and England will meet Nov. 9-12 at North Sydney Oval in the milestone game, the only test in a seven-match series that also includes three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals.      

"Test matches we don't play a lot of and for it to be a day-night pink ball test is extra special," Meg Lanning, captain of the Australian women's team, said.      

Cricket Australia released the women's tour itinerary today.      

Australia hosted the first ever day-night Test when the men's team beat New Zealand in a low-scoring match at the Adelaide Oval in 2015. Australia also played South Africa in a day-night test in Adelaide last year and will host England in a day-night match at the same venue during the five-test Ashes series later this year.
