11.4 caught at long on! She miscues one. This was tossed up slower, she advances but doesn't get to it, she drags it off the toe to long on and Krishnamurthy takes a simple catch 115/1
    not out
    16.2 taken at square leg. Pushes it through quickly, short of a length and wide outside off. Backs into the off side and whips at this to try and go behind square on the leg side. Two fielders in the circle there, it's a good option. And good connection too. But just not enough height and Pandey stretches high to her right to grab that 154/2
    16.5 quick hands! Swift glovework as usual from India's wicketkeeper. Length ball pushed through flat outside off. Steps out and has a swish at this, but is well beaten 156/3
    18.5 pulled straight onto the stumps. Short of a length outside off, gets very deep in the crease and a long way outside off. The attempted pull comes off the thick inside part of the bat and straight onto leg stump 176/4

    0.3 caught behind! Sensational catch by Healy! Verma is heart-broken. 107kph, shorter, back of a length, it shapes in and cramps Verma as she tries to open the face and glide to third woman, gets a thin edge and Healy rises with the extra bounce and pouches it with soft hands. Wonderful catch. Australia are jubilant 2/1
    3.1 chipped to mid off and Carey pouches it again! It was tossed up on off, Mandhana wanted to find the boundary and tried to go inside out against the turn over mid off, she completely mis-hit and sliced a simple catch to mid off. Carey gleefully hangs on to a second catch 18/3
    retired hurt
    1.6 holes out to mid on! Easy catch for Carey! 79kph, drifting into middle, she advances on just her second ball and tries to loft down the ground, she miscues and hits it straight to Carey on the circle 8/2
    5.4 caught at deep square by Gardner! Gardner didn't panic with a teammate closing in on her under a high ball on the rope. It was tossed up, she tried to slog sweep and got a top edge that flies all the way to the square leg rope, Gardner is there, Wareham is running nearby, but she catches it well. 30/4
    16.1 taken at long-on! They just keep piling on the awesomeness, this team! Looking well and truly like world champions. Mooney, after batting an entire innings, has lunged forward to take a low catch at long-on. Slower ball, short of a length in the corridor. Flat-bats that and gets little elevation. Dipping quickly on Mooney but down she goes to take that safely 88/6
    11.3 taken at mid-off! India's biggest partnership of the night so far, 28, comes to an end, and there is no better way to sum up this chase. Veda wants to launch this length ball over mid-off, it's an angled bat that comes down at the ball, not quite assertive in the approach. Bat turns a little in the hands too. It's a cutter and Jonassen watches it closely as she takes a couple of steps back to hold on 58/5
    17.3 comfortably taken at midwicket. Length on middle stump, looks for the slog, gets it off the high inside part of the bat. It floats up feebly in the leg side. Carey gets under it and focuses hard by the looks of it. Then grabs a simple one. Not a bad outing for Richa Ghosh, the concussion sub 96/8
    17.1 pedals backwards at mid-off and hangs on. Mooney again! Full slower ball outside off, looks to loft, inside-out. Skews it off the outside part of the bat and Mooney runs to her left, keeps her eyes on it, and holds on well 92/7
    18.1 they just can't get past her! Length on middle stump, steps out and yorks herself, almost. Looks to drill that over mid-on, but it's off the toe-end and there is Mooney again to lap it up 97/9
    19.1 and she closes it out! Gardner comes sprinting in from the midwicket boundary to hold on to this attempted slog. That's four wickets for Schutt, who was tied with Poonam Yadav for wickets before this match began. She closes it out with the wicket of Poonam 99/10
