    44.5 run out, full toss on leg stump, has a wild swing, gets an inside edge, it drops just behind the stumps and they decide to steal single, the keeper and captain fields picks it up cleanly and throws down the stumps at the striker's end to find Sarah short of her ground 238/4
    3.4 and Farrell gets the wicket! Pitches it outside the off stump and gets the ball to curve back in. Atkins does not get the shuffle right as she is struck plumb in front 12/1
    24.5 finally she gets the breakthrough, the pair was looking dangerous, Short of a length outside off, she is sucked into the cut, tries to slash it behind point, gets a thick edge and the keeper makes no mistake 107/2
    40.1 that's plumb!! Short of a good length on middle, Morgan took a couple of steps to play it into the leg side, missed and was rapped in front of middle, the umpire raised his finger immediately but Morgan's done her job here 193/3

    46.3 struck it ferociously but straight to Lauren Ebsary at cover, was in the slot, nice and full outside off, she connected well but didn't get the desired elevation, England are five down 246/5
    50 slower one bowled on a good length outside off, makes room to clear mid-off but mistimed it completely, easily taken by Ebsary at mid-off 259/6

    1 England strike! A loose shot from Poulton, bowled on a good length on middle and she drives through the line but with little intent, lobs a catch straight back to the bowler, Brunt bends low and takes it inches from the ground, Australia are pegged back early 2/1
    16.4 bowled'im!! What a timely blow. An absolute beauty, completely flummoxed Nitschke, landed on middle and spun away sharply just as the batsmen tried to close the face to work it into the leg side, clipped the offstump bail and only Sarah, the keeper, went up. The bowler Marsh took a while to realise she had taken a massive wicket, England are back. 87/2
    21.1 They get a breakthrough, and it's the dangerous Sthalekar! Full and wide, a slower one and Sthalekar could not keep it down, driving it straight to Claire Taylor at extra cover, big wicket for England. Sthalekar walks back after a fluent innings 107/3
    32.1 Rolton goes! Marsh tossed it up on leg stump, Rolton stepped out and attempted to clear midwicket, the ball spun away to take the outside edge and Taylor made no mistake, Rolton didn't even wait for the decision, she walked away as soon as the catch was taken 134/6
    22.4 run out, England finally get their aim right, turned away wide of Guha at midwicket, Fields is reluctant about the single but Rolton runs through, Fields is too late to respond, Guha collects and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end to find the opposition captain miles short of her ground 108/4
    27 stumping, Blackwell is induced into the drive but is beaten by the spin, Sarah collects well and takes off the bails but replays indicate the batsman may have just dragged her feet back, or maybe not, it was just on the line and that belongs to the umpire, the red light flashes and Blackwell has to walk back. Australia have lost the advantage in a matter of a few overs. England are favourites from here 115/5

    43.4 it's all over! Shaw delivers the final blow. Slower one bowled on a length on the off, Ebsary, who had played a valiant knock, had a massive swing at it but made no contact, the ball did the rest, crashing into middle and off 204/10
    33.3 plumb! Australia are sliding here, short on middle, went for the pull, missed, struck in line with middle and that's a dead duck 141/7
    38.1 run out, yorker on middle, dug out short of the bowler, who slides, picks up the ball, turns around and throws down the stumps in one motion to find Perry short of her ground as he dives to make it, her resistance ends, Australia are eight down 168/8
    39.4 Timber! Bang on target, slightly short but straight, Andrews is drawn into the pull, she misses and the off stump takes a beating, just one more wicket to complete a comprehensive win for England 175/9
