    0.2 given caught behind on the field! Although Healy seems a little too eager to take the edge, her gloves clipping the off bail off as she reaches forward. This is a slightly back of a length delivery, which Knight tries to steer behind point, gets a thick edge and the wicketkeeper takes it nicely. All this happens on the field, in a split second, but then comes the chaos. Knight is asked to wait, the third umpire is called in to decide whether Healy took the catch in front of the stumps and/or whether it is bowled, because the bail came out. Suddenly Not Out flashes on screen. But, a littler later it is given out! Calling all flies on the wall in the tv umpire's room! 0/1
    4.2 what a ripper from Healy! Takes a bottom edge leaping low to her right. Those are ridiculously difficult. The umpires come together and have asked for the third umpire for confirmation. Soft signal is out and it is upheld. North Sydney erupts and the hometown girl owes her wicketkeeper big time. Beaumont comes down the track, Perry shortens her length, making the adjustment seems hard and the batsman simply flaps at it. The bottom edge comes and then superb athleticism from Healy, staying low, moving quickly, grabbing it with one glove and also, while she is falling, ensures the ball doesn't hit the turf 16/3
    1.1 lbw, Australia are on a roll! A good length ball pitches outside off and cuts back into Taylor. She is trying to nudge it through midwicket, but the bat comes around her front pad, across the line, and takes too long to get to the ball. By then, it hits her above the knee roll and it does look rather adjacent. Height though might have been a question.. 4/2
    12.4 sweeps across the line and is pinned in front of off stump! Big wicket, and it's the comeback kid who takes it. Slow in pace, as a result of which the ball drifts away from the right-hander. That might well have lured Sciver into the shot. The ball then pitches and cuts in to pin the batsman in line with off stump 80/5
    4.3 Perry is on a hat-trick. She's just showing off now. A short and wide delivery that Brunt flashes, gets a thick outside edge and Healy does the rest 16/4
    15.5 run out at the striker's end, great work Gardner! First she pulls the length back seeing Wyatt racing down the pitch. Then she moves quickly to her right to gather the ball, while Wyatt thinks she's placed it wide enough for a single to long-on. Has to stop, turn and motor back, but by then the ball's been relayed to Healy who breaks the stumps easily 100/6

    17.2 caught at extra cover! Gunn is reaching out to away from her body to meet the good length leg-cutter. Skews it off a thick outside edge to the captain Haynes 108/7
    19.3 goes straight up and mid-off takes it just about cleanly. Mooney the catcher, holding on just as the ball seems to want to jump out of her hand. Huge swipe across the line from Hazell, which at this stage is warranted. Gets only a leading edge 125/8
    20 fourth wicket for Schutt as she does Ecclestone with a legcutter. Places it outside off as she sees the batsman charging out. And with Healy's safe hands, that was always a wicket 132/9

    4.2 taken at deep square leg, Wyatt in the spotlight again! Does well to move to her right, gets both hands to it and England have a big wicket. A back of a length delivery from Brunt does the trick 30/1

    9.2 taken at cover! Villani is trying to go inside out over cover, but Ecclestone having seen her hit like that earlier in the game, cramps the batsman, targeting her pads. The lack of room means Villani doesn't get the power she needs to lift it over the field 77/2
    11.2 too full to play back, and worse, she plays right across the line. Hartley strikes the wicket, by basically bowling so very very slow. Gardner is through the shot before the ball arrives 93/3
    12.2 caught and bowled! Hazell has one now and it's a huge wicket. Perry, popping a leading edge back to the bowler. Quicker delivery, which is why the batsman looks to flick it through midwicket. But it ends up holding on the pitch and taking out the hometown hero 104/4
