0.2 gone. Wicket off just the second ball. Poor shot. Slightly flatter outside off, Mendis looking for a big hit doesn't time her expansive shot at all. The heave finds mid-on. Aus strike very early, SL in early pressure 0/1
    13.4 bowled. Good innings ends. A very flat and full delivery down leg, Atapattu looks for a flick to the leg side but maybe a bit too tired, and so the bat comes down way too late. Hits the pad and then deflects onto off and middle stump 93/4
    10.3 that fortune has finally ended. And, Australia are pumped. A big wicket this. Shortish outside off, Manodara goes back for a short-arm jab to the leg side but gets a thin edge onto the leg stump. 75/2
    13 Healy thinks she has her woman. Beautiful delivery, slowed up just enough to extract a lot of turn on the legbreak. Rips past the outside edge and Healy whips off the bails. Looks as if the foot is on the line but is there a smidgen behind behind. Is there too much doubt? The third umpire is looking at more than a handful of replays. And he calls it out. Could have gone either way but there didn't look like there was anything behind the crease. 89/3
    17.2 gone, fantastic fielding from Mooney at mid-on. Slogged away to mid-on with an angled bat and Eshani labours through for the run. But a clean pick-up and bang on target at the non-strikers end. Out by a foot or more 108/5
    19.4 another wicket. Healy with another awesome piece of wicket-keeping. Quality, quality stuff. A very full yorker down leg and the ball goes trough bat and pad, Healy smartly moves around and collects a very tough take. And then whips off the bails. 121/7
    19.3 another good catch. This time Villani, running around from mid-off takes a quality take. Slow on off, spooned up in the air with awful timing. Villani keeps her eyes on the ball throughout her run and takes it easily. Well done. 121/6
    20 speared in the blockhole on off with very slow pace. Squeezed towards square leg for one, coming back for the second, but they weren't really. Run out by a mile. 123/7
