9.4 Shrubsole's on a roll this morning! Moves it back in through the air, Lanning was forward to drive, gets an outside edge to the keeper and Australia have lost their fourth before the 10th over 27/4
    5.2 soft dismissal! Shrubsole swings it away from over the wicket, Haynes is too early on the drive and she pops it back to the bowler, comfortably taken 10/1
    5.5 middle stump goes for a morning walk! We did talk about the amount of swing this morning, Shrubsole got this one to swerve back in sharply to the right-hander, Cameron went across and the ball went past the gap between pad and bat, bowled through the gate, the stump tumbles and lands a few yards back 10/2
    6.4 Australia are wobbling! Brunt in the action now, loose shot by Blackwell, not sure what she was trying to do, this was outside off and moving back in, Blackwell was prodding forward and it was nothing more than a half-hearted push, gets a thin inside edge to the keeper 15/3
    31.1 the bowling change works! Brindle tossed that one up and it looped towards the off stump, Sthalekar wasn't prepared for that change of pace wasn't in control of the drive, she's beaten on the walk and the ball hits the off stump 114/6
    12.2 Gunn fires off her second ball! Soft dismissal again, this was pitched up outside off and Fields was forward and ended up spooning the drive to Greenway at point, she moves to her right and takes the catch 32/5
    38.2 Coyte's resistance ends! Colvin tosses it up and Coyte chips down the track and tries to clear the infield, she can't clear Shrubsole who pedals back at mid-on and takes the catch 128/8
    32.5 Seven down and Colvin gets a wicket! We have seen a few soft dismissals this morning this is one more, tossed up on the off stump, Osborne wanted to chip that over cover but ended up offering an easy catch to Greenway at cover 115/7
    not out
    41.5 gets a top edge while going for the big hit! She stays at the crease and tries to launch it over the on side, top edge swirls to Knight at mid-on 135/9
    44.4 gets a top edge off the forehand, soft dismissal to end the innings, Ferling tries to flat-bat that over mid-on but gets a top edge, Shrubsole rounds off a good day in the field by taking an easy catch 147/10

    3 Edwards has been given out lbw but I'm afraid it wasn't the best decision! Schutt got it to swing back in sharply down leg and it was headed down the leg side, Edwards tried working it away to the leg side and was hit on the pads, the ball tracker showed it was missing leg 11/1
    8.1 Ferling strikes first ball! It wasn't a good delivery and the shot was no better, short and wide outside off, moving away and Wyatt couldn't resist chasing it, gets a thick outside edge on the cut and Fields catches it falling forward 37/3
    4.1 two down! Schutt tosses it a touch wide outside off, invites the drive, Taylor chases it and gets an outside edge that lobs to first slip, getting interesting already 14/2
    41 the wicket Australia were searching for for a long, long time! Soft way to get out, Ferling fired that full outside off from over the wicket, tempted Greenway to drive, couldn't keep it down and ended up chipping it to Sthalekar at short cover 114/8
    9.1 the top orders of both sides are struggling in this match! This was pitched up and swinging away, inviting the drive, Brindle wanted to drive square but couldn't keep it down, spooned it straight to Haynes at backward point 38/4
    9.4 ...and half the side is back in the pavilion already! Hunter gets this one to move back in late, Knight tries to work it to the on side and the ball hits the pads, Hawkeye shows that was clipping leg 38/5
    10.5 timber! Gunn fails to get her bat down to keep that out. Ferling fires that on middle stump and it dips and takes out the middle stump, not sure whether Gunn saw it properly, she misses a straight one and England are in a sorry mess 39/6
    36.3 Marsh's resistance ends! Coyte gets it to swing in with the angle, Marsh was across and trying to nudge it to the on side, exposed the leg stump, the umpire reckoned it was hitting but Hawkeye says it would have missed, well 96/7
    41.2 It's that lady Sthalekar again! Tossed up and Brunt chips down the track and lofts, she fails to time it well and cannot clear mid-on, Schutt runs to her left and takes the catch 114/9
    47.3 she has edged it would you believe this! Erin Osborne gets the final wicket! Tossed up outside the off stump, Colvin was back and across to cut, it was too tempting to let go, managed a thick edge, Fields knew it, Australia have won by 2 runs 145/10

Match Notes

  • Ferling overcomes her nerves

    Holly Ferling, a gangling, giggling fast bowler, all of 17, found out she was playing an important World Cup match against the old rivals after the woman she idolizes is ruled out unfit

  • Sthalekar rates win 'pretty high' in her career

    Lisa Sthalekar feels Australia have done some "damage" to their traditional rivals on the psychological front

  • Australia top table after two-run victory

    Australia pipped England by two runs to maintain their record of never losing to them on neutral territory

  • Unbeaten Australia hold edge

    A day after India and Pakistan met to decide who would finish last in the tournament, another traditional rivalry, between Australia and England, will kick off the Super Six stage
