England captain Charlotte Edwards says her side have "taken a lot of belief from the men's team" after their spectacular Ashes victory.
Edwards and her Australian counterpart Meg Lanning were speaking ahead of their Test match in Canterbury that begins on Tuesday.
The Women's Ashes are decided by a points system with each of the ODIs and T20s worth two points, and the Test match worth four points. Australia are 4-2 up in points ahead of this match having won the ODI series 2-1.
There will be live commentary of the match on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra and BBC Radio 4 Long Wave from Tuesday at 10:25 BST.
