10pm: England's unbeaten record at Chelmsford is obliterated in spectacular fashion, Australia moving 10-2 up in the Ashes with a 93-run win - a record margin of defeat in this format for the home side. That means Australia win the Ashes, with two games to play (having ensured they would retain them last week). This has been a miserable series for England, and it doesn't look like getting much better, with two more T20Is to go. Thanks for tuning in, we'll be back to see if England can do any better on Sunday, when the teams move on to Hove.

Schutt to Marsh, OUT

bowler 'er! Rattles into middle and off, Marsh attempting to sweep but going too far across. The zing bails light up, but it's almost lights out for England

Schutt to Marsh, SIX runs

dropped for six this time! Targets the deep midwicket boundary again, Gardner was underneath it... but the ball burst straight through her hands and over the rope

They've managed to at least reduce the deficit below three figures...
