SYDNEY: England held on for a draw in the one-off test during the women's Ashes series against Australia, a match that was memorable for Ellyse Perry's 213 not out for the hosts.

Perry's double-century on Saturday - a national record and the third-highest score in a women's test - helped Australia to 448-9 declared, a 168-run first-innings lead. But England was resilient in its second innings, reaching 206-2 to ensure the match ended in a draw Sunday.

England captain Heather Knight was unbeaten on 79 and shared a 117-run partnership with Georgia Elwiss, who faced 190 deliveries for her 41 not out.

Australia won two of the three one-day internationals leading up to the day-night pink ball test match, and leads the series 6-4 with three Twenty20 internationals remaining.

The five-test men's Ashes series begins Nov. 23 in Brisbane.
