Katherine Brunt2254822.181088000
6.6 to NE Bolton, got her! Lovely line and length from Brunt, just holding its line on off, and Bolton, who had been sizing up the leg side for most of the over was in no position to prevent her stumps from being knocked back! A vital strike, and England are in the game now!. 25/1
137.4 to JL Jonassen, got 'er, sliced to backward point! Brunt shoulders down the door for England's first wicket of the day, she's been hitting the pitch hard, wringing whatever life out of it she can and Jonassen just wasn't in control of that shot... Flashed at a drive and it went quickly to Sciver, who took it well!. 356/6
Anya Shrubsole2166303.0010313000
Sophie Ecclestone34.289022.6215411000
53.1 to MM Lanning, ah the old commentator's curse! This one goes straight on from Ecclestone, slightly quicker, and smashes into the top of off stump. Lanning had looked set for a real vigil, but was done by the skid on that - little bit of extra pace, and England have the breakthrough. 160/3
151.3 to S Molineux, got her! Turns in just a touch towards the left-hander, who can't get any bat on it and is bowled to give Ecclestone her second wicket of the Test. Not a great shot all told, looking to flick it into the leg side. 408/7
Nat Sciver13.424413.21596000
154.4 to BL Mooney, great catch! Full and straight, and looks to tuck into the leg side, but gets a leading edge and Jones takes a blinder running back from backward point towards short third man.. 420/8
Kirstie Gordon26.476912.5812611000
25.5 to AJ Healy, bowled her round her legs! A misjudgement from Healy, with lunch approaching, and that's a massive first Test wicket for Kirstie Gordon! Walked across her stumps, looking to open up the leg side, but simply missed the ball as it snuck round the back!. 91/2
Laura Marsh3459022.641498000
124.4 to EA Perry, GONE! Finally England get the wicket they were after. Low full toss, chipped to Knight at short midwicket. Perry's vigil ends in rather tame fashion just as she was looking to get a move on. 322/4
128.6 to RL Haynes, fired in and gone! Haynes falls for 87, the Australian unlucky number. This straightens a touch from round the wicket, hits bang in front, and looks like it's going on to hit leg stump. The finger goes up and Haynes' stoic innings comes to an end. 335/5

Ellyse Perry1334413.38616003
2.1 to TT Beaumont, got her! That is a massive moment in this Test match. Slightly full of a length, swings in towards the right-hander before seaming back the other way. Beaumont played down the leg stump line and it crashes into the top of middle-and-off to give Australia a big, big breakthrough. 1/1
Megan Schutt74600.85380010
Sophie Molineux3769542.5617413000
23.2 to HC Knight, tossed up, 43.9mph, shapes to sweep and rapped on the pad...given! A first wicket in Test cricket for Molineux, who wheels away in celebration, and another massive wicket for Australia. She floated this up above the eyeline and successfully drew the big shot, but Knight will be disappointed to have been lured in by that. Three reds on Hawk-Eye, and that's as out as out can be. 80/2
43.6 to AE Jones, oh no, Jones holes out to mid-off! Huge wicket for Australia, but Jones has rather given it away there. The Australians are cock-a-hoop, Haynes was the catcher, initially going the wrong way but picking up the flight in time to take a not-so-comfortable catch. Jones looking to go over the top; England now in real danger of going under. 119/4
47.3 to SJ Taylor, brings the bat down late, did that brush the knee roll first...? GIVEN! Taylor looks aghast, the ball definitely thumped into the middle of the bat, but the question was whether it made contact with pad first, and Alex Wharf was of the opinion it did! Impact was in line, and UltraEdge confirms Wharf's view, a brilliant decision by the umpire, though Taylor will doubtless be disappointed to be one of the few lbws given in this match. 132/5
87.2 to A Shrubsole, that's a stumping! Moving forward, looking to smack it to the leg side, Shrubsole swings big and misses and she's out of her ground as Healy removes the bails.. 210/7
Tayla Vlaeminck1123703.36484011
Jess Jonassen21.155022.361047001
101.6 to NR Sciver, and she does throw it away this time! And she's fuming about it. Tries to run a length ball that pitched just outside off down towards third man, gets a bottom edge on it, and chops on to the delight of Jonassen. Sciver falls 12 short of a third international hundred and England's task just got that little bit harder!. 252/8
107.1 to LA Marsh, gone! Looks to sweep, trapped in front, and given! Stone-dead on Hawk-Eye, three reds and hitting middle halfway up. 275/9
Ashleigh Gardner1853612.00854000
74.1 to KH Brunt, chops on! From around the wicket, Brunt prods forward, but the ball ricochets cruelly off her inside edge, onto her front pad and then clatters into the stumps. A gritty stand of 57 in 26.4 overs is broken, and Australia's spinners strike again. 189/6

Sophie Ecclestone1663712.31796000
32.5 to BL Mooney, STUNNER! Mooney charges down the pitch looking to slog over midwicket, and an outrageous effort at short leg by Tammy Beaumont to take the catch. She was very low to the ground, and moving just in front of square but stayed big and it somehow stuck in her gleeful mitts. Outstanding work under the lid. 105/4
Katherine Brunt402305.75175000
Laura Marsh1324223.23544000
5.2 to AJ Healy, full and angled across the right-hander, it's come back between bat and pad bowls her!. 14/1
5.6 to RL Haynes, that's another one! It's pitched just outside off and then slid on to hit her on the pad, right in line with middle stump. What a start to this session from England.. 15/2
Kirstie Gordon1015025.00376100
22.5 to MM Lanning, wow! A rank full toss and she's tried to give it some treatment but hits it straight to Georgia Elwiss, who takes a sharp leaping catch at cover. They did have a look to see if that delivery was too high and, consequently, a no ball but it was confirmed to be legal.. 67/3
62.4 to S Molineux, Got her! Would you believe it?! Full and straight, flicks the pad on the way through as she tries to work through midwicket again, and Molineux is bowled. A wicket from nowhere, with the tempo gone from this game. 221/6
Georgia Elwiss702703.85315000
Anya Shrubsole601702.83283000
Heather Knight802523.12333000
49.3 to JL Jonassen, Got her! This is an absolute pea-shooter, which pitches on off stump and slides on without getting up at all. Strikes the back leg, deep in the crease, and Jonassen ruefully wanders off. The golden arm of Knight strikes with her third ball of the Test!. 168/5
63.6 to A Gardner, GONE! Gardner goes downtown, and Beaumont, diving forward, takes a brilliant catch at deep midwicket. What a way to throw away an average-boosting red-inker.... 230/7
