    4.5 one too many and Shillington goes. In the slot again, and Shillington goes for an expansive drive down the ground - not a bad option again - but she just did not execute well enough. A little late on the ball, not adequate power and the ball lobs to Mooney at mid-off 33/1
    11.3 the false stroke and gone. Plenty of pressure created by some tight overs, Joyce shuffles across to off to look for an expansive heave over the leg side but gets it off the top half of the bat. Looks like spooning over midwicket but the ball hangs in the air for enough time for midwicket to backtrack and take a quality catch - eyes on the ball throughout 53/2
    18.5 in the air and taken. Legcutter on off, chipped down to long-off and Mooney runs in to take a simple catch 87/5
    17 full and straight and gone. As plumb as it gets. Isobel walks across but misses a flick and soon as she did, she was always out, one way or another. Struck right in front and an easy decision 75/3
    17.2 gone. What fielding, I think that is Jonassen again. Amazing in the field have been the Australians. A yorker was sliding down leg, but the batsman go through for the leg bye. The bowler doesn't bother getting back to the stumps after a lengthy appeal. But the throw is perfect at the non-strikers end. 76/4

    19.3 yorker and gone. Perfect again. Very full, quick on leg. Lewis misses the flick and is struck in front. Not sure if that was sliding down leg but the umpire was quick to raise the finger. 89/6
    20 what has happened there? More good fielding is what has happened. But has it cost Australia one? Or has it saved them one? Simple answer. Full on middle, chipped to mid-on who could have so easily hung onto the ball with it being the last ball, but she backer herself and struck down the stumps with an ease I've never seen before. The batsmen go through for the second off the deflection but doesn't matter, she's run out 91/6

    2.2 what a take. A one-handed stunner from the captain. Short delivery on middle, a poor delivery, sits up for Healy who mis-timer her pull towards midwicket. Isobel sticks out her right hand and completes a sensational catch. Joy all around 19/1
    12.4 gone this time. Looking for a bit hit to get this game done but she picks out cover. Full on off, Villani keeps her shape and tries to go over mid-off but the ball skews off the outside half, straight down the throat of the cover fielder 85/3
    5 bowled this time. Very similar delivery, a fullish length on middle and Lanning looks for another of those swat-pulls but the ball keeps a tad low, not quite the length to pull. Missed and out comes the middle stump. Good when it comes off but not this time 31/2
