    8.4 down the track, and Bhatia has to go. Nicely bowled by Knight, floated across and wide outside off. No turn, just goes with the angle, and she looks to hit over midwicket and ends up getting a bit of a leading edge on it. Pops up for a simple catch for Sciver, who completes it after running a few steps to her left from midwicket 53/2
    5.6 gone, Ecclestone has made up for the drop. Back of a length outside off, and it stops on Mandhana again. Not sure if she was looking to pull or punch down the ground - ends up playing a half-and-half sort of shot, and checks it as well, and pops it back towards the bowler. Fairly straightforward catch, and she takes it well, tumbling to her left 43/1
    13.5 India lose their third, to a run out. Down the track once more and Gordon holds her length back slightly while dangling it wider outside off. Lifts this over the diving cover point fielder but doesn't time it. They decide to go for a second as backward point mops up, but the diving Rodrigues can't quite beat the throw home from Beaumont to the keeper's end 89/3
    15.5 oh my, what has Harmanpreet done here? Jumps down the wicket and goes for the big slog over midwicket. She isn't close enough to the pitch of this ball to hit against the turn, and on this track that's an invitation to disaster. The top-edge loops high in the air, and descends into the grateful hands of backward point 94/5
    15.1 down the track, and Gordon strikes. Doesn't reach the pitch of this tossed-up delivery outside off stump and tries to manufacture a slog-sweep. Always a dangerous shot on a pitch where the ball is stopping and turning, and she's through her shot too early. Only manages a top-edge that presents Jones with a loopy dolly of a catch 93/4
    19.3 and is that another run-out? Poonam goes deep in her crease and dabs this back-of-a-length delivery to short third man. They hurry through for the quick single, even though it went straight to the fielder. Deepti is nowhere near making it home, but they check to see if Jones got the bails off cleanly. Looks like she fumbled the ball, but it went on to hit the stumps before her gloves swept across in their follow-through and disturbed the stumps themselves. 112/10
    16.5 flighted ball dangled across Hemalatha and wide of off stump. Reaches out to drive, and only manages to pop a simple catch to short extra. Lovely use of a slow pitch from Knight 99/6
    16.6 and she's out first ball! Doesn't give herself any time to have a look at the conditions and get her eye in. Steps out of her crease straightaway, and Knight, continuing from round the wicket, smartly holds her length back. Goes through with a half-hearted lofted hit, and long-on, sprinting to her left, takes a superb tumbling catch. Lauren Winfield the fielder 99/7
    18.1 is this another run-out? I think it is! India are imploding here, and England are really turning it on. Back of a length and Radha dabs gently towards cover point and sets off. Wyatt has to sprint in and turn around slightly to throw to the bowler's end. She nails a direct hit and catches Radha some four inches short 104/8
    19.2 down the track, and India are nine down now. Saw her coming and bowled it flatter and quicker. Doesn't reach the pitch, and slogs across the line, looking to hit over the on side. Turns away and beats her comfortably to leave Jones the easiest of stumpings to complete 112/9
