6.4 beaten and bowled. Goes a long way back and exposes all her stumps against this short ball trying to play the late cut. A safer option against Kerr who was taking it away. Kasperek brings it back in and it stays very very low. Knocks middle stump out. That's the end of Shillington's last innings in internationals, and it was a struggle right till the end 30/2
    2.6 chipped straight to midwicket. Length ball at middle stump, looks to lift it over mid-on on the up, but the front leg is too far away to keep control of this shot. Lobs off the low part of the inside half 11/1
    15.2 a full millenial passage. Gaby Lewis' excellent innings is ended by a Kerr legbreak that draws her out and has her swiping across the line as she's beaten in flght. Pitched on off and turned away and she missed it by a long way. Lewis was looking frenzied the last 10 minutes or so, perhaps she had begun to tire 71/5
    6.6 that's plumb. Tossed up at middle stump and looks like this one has skidded on quite low as well. Joyce puts the front foot stride across into the off side and locks herself up on the flick. That hits her in front of middle and off. Oh hang on. That isn't as plumb as it looked! It hit her on a middle stump and line and replays show it was missing leg stump 30/3
    14.5 chips to midwicket. Length at middle stump, looks for the pick-up shot into the leg side but the stride isn't sufficient. She finds the fielder 69/4
    15.4 googly traps her in front of the stumps and she won't review it. This pitched on off and ripped back in and she didn't pick it. It her in front of leg stump though, on her back thigh. Wonder if it was worth the review...it was. That was sliding down leg 72/6
    16.6 finds long-on. Lobbed up wide outside off, fetches it with the turn to try and clear the boundary but Bates takes it well inside 76/7
    18.1 Garth reviews an lbw decision. She was caught in front of the stumps by a slower ball landing on a length. She was looking to flick and that caught her above the knee flap. And it is hitting leg. Decision stands. 78/9
    17.5 tapped back to the bowler. Length ball loops at an off stump line. She steps out and lifts it to Watkin's right. As simple as that. 78/8
