Edwards expects hard-fought Ashes

England skipper Charlotte Edwards expects a fiercely-contested Ashes series against the World Cup holders Australia.

The Women's Ashes begins on Tuesday, with England bidding for a third successive victory since the trophy has been decided by all three formats.

Taunton hosts the first of three one-day internationals as England return to action for the first time since beating New Zealand down under in February.

Every ball of the Women's Ashes will be live on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra starting with the first ODI on Tuesday from 10:15 BST.
