England’s women’s cricket team headed to the Antipodes in January 2000 to play one-day internationals in Australia and New Zealand. By the time they were ready to head east across the Tasman, England had lost the ODI series to Australia 0-4 and Karen Smithies had resigned as captain.
Working for Cricinfo at the time I covered every ODI of the Australian leg of the tour, and I believe I have the only comprehensive documentation of these games.
My reports, on Cricinfo:
ODI 1: Keightley dominates as Australia much too good
ODI 2: England’s gloom continues with 87 run loss
ODI 3: Australia crush England to take 3-0 lead
ODI 4: England whitewashed as Clark and Mason save best for last
Smithies quits: World Cup-winning captain resigns mid-tour
