Fall of wickets: 1-35 (Phoebe Litchfield, 8.6 ov), 2-83 (Beth Mooney, 21.6 ov), 3-202 (Tahlia McGrath, 46.2 ov), 4-226 (Jess Jonassen, 56.1 ov), 5-226 (Alyssa Healy, 56.3 ov), 6-238 (Ellyse Perry, 59.6 ov), 7-315 (Ashleigh Gardner, 81.1 ov), 8-362 (Alana King, 97.6 ov), 9-457 (Kim Garth, 120.4 ov), 10-473 (Darcie Brown, 124.2 ov) • DRS
8.6 to P Litchfield, Kate Cross gets the big breakthrough and Trent Bridge breaks into an applause! Indecision costs Litchfield and she has to depart. Sees the length ball start around off and chooses to shoulder arms instead of playing at it. But the ball moves in just a touch and she ends up padding it away. As plumb as lbws get. Well, well! Hawk-Eye shows that the ball would have missed the stumps! Litchfield didn't even think of DRS.. 35/1
81.1 to A Gardner, big inswinger, takes the outside edge, Jones snaffles it! Bell strikes with her first ball with the new ball, and England break through before the close. Seemed to hoop in at Gardner and then hold its line, almost wrongfooting Jones, too - but she reacted at the last moment, sticking out the gloves and holding the catch with aplomb. 315/7
97.6 to AM King, ding-dong Bell! King is castled! England break through at the top of the first hour. Lovely inswinger from Bell, pitched up and inviting the drive. King has a dip but leaves a big gap, as the ball comes back and crashes into off stump. Gets the radar right and Australia are out down. 362/8
46.2 to TM McGrath, bowled 'er! That's a beauty! Ecclestone strikes and breaks the stand, she leaps and punches the air in celebration. Maybe a little wider on the crease, the ball angled in and then gripping, turns down the line of middle to break the bails. McGrath was pushing forward defensively but hears the death rattle behind her. England needed that. 202/3
56.1 to JL Jonassen, Appeal for catch but it wasn't too convincing. Oh, England opt to review! Floated up fullish around middle and leg, Jonassen goes for the sweep and it lobs up to Beaumont for short leg for a catch. Ultra-Edge detects that it came off the glove! Excellent review from England and Ecclestone picks up her second, a left-hand batter.. 226/4
56.3 to AJ Healy, Ecclestone is off and running as she has two in the over! Healy has missed that completely. Bowled quicker and fuller around off, Healy plays well inside the line - almost covering only middle and leg. Ends up fully exposing off and hears the death rattle. Third successive duck for Healy against England in Tests.. 226/5
120.4 to KJ Garth, done by the arm ball! Struck on the back pad, up goes the finger... but Garth is quick to review. Unless she's got bat on this, I think she's toast. Zips through with the angle and beats the inside edge, ball-tracking has it taking out leg stump. That's good enough for Anna Harris to raise her finger again. Ecclestone has a fourth and England's toil is almost at an end. 457/9
124.2 to D Brown, chipped back, Ecclestone has five! Brown plops a drive at a comfortable height, which Ecclestone takes going to her left, and wraps up the Australia innings with her maiden Test five-for. 473/10
21.6 to BL Mooney, got her, slashed to gully! Filer has sawn off Mooney with a rising delivery that catches the edge near the splice and is well held by Cross. That was clocked at 74mph/119kph and it flew off the bat, leaving Cross on her backside... but crucially with the ball clutched to her chest. First England wicket for the debutant. Filer off to a flyer indeed!. 83/2
59.6 to EA Perry, Century denied for Perry! Filer gets the big fish. Bowls this fuller and outside off, enticing the drive. Perry goes for it but does not get the front foot to the line of the ball. Goes for the drive away from the body and slices it to gully where Sciver-Brunt doesn't miss. England are ecstatic, Perry has her head bowed down and she departs.. 238/6

Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Emma Lamb, 9.6 ov), 2-151 (Heather Knight, 40.2 ov), 3-288 (Nat Sciver-Brunt, 71.3 ov), 4-318 (Sophia Dunkley, 85.5 ov), 5-390 (Danni Wyatt, 103.2 ov), 6-411 (Amy Jones, 108.3 ov), 7-448 (Sophie Ecclestone, 116.5 ov), 8-448 (Kate Cross, 118.1 ov), 9-463 (Lauren Filer, 120.2 ov), 10-463 (Tammy Beaumont, 121.2 ov) • DRS
103.2 to DN Wyatt, Catching practice for Jonassen, frustration for Wyatt! A Test fifty on debut was there for the taking but she throws it away and is dragging her off the field. The previous delivery perhaps played a bit on her mind. Brown bowls it on a length - just further than good length perhaps. Wyatt looks to glide it past second slip and opens the face to pop a catch straight to second slip, where Jonassen dives to her right and pouches it. Just the momentum-breaking wicket for Australia.. 390/5
9.6 to EL Lamb, Edged and taken! Sutherland gets a wicket in her first over. Full delivery around off stump, enticing the drive from Lamb, Jonassen at the second slip completes a low catch. 36/1
108.3 to AE Jones, Oh dear! Soft dismissal for Jones. Perry bowls it full almost on the pads, a hint of swing away. Jones look to turn it away but the bat turns in her hands. She ends up getting it off the face to mid-on where Sutherland takes it reverse-cupped over her head. "How many times she gets out like this," Healy was heard quipping on the stump mic.. 411/6
40.2 to HC Knight, Brilliant! A little bit of turn and a little bit of bounce and Knight is gone. Bowls a full delivery with pace off around off stump, batter gets a thick outside edge to keeper. A loud shout from Gardner and Healy. Umpire's finger goes up. Finally, a breakthrough for Australia. 151/2
71.3 to Nat Sciver-Brunt, Massive breakthrough and you can't keep Gardner quiet for long, irrespective of the format! Bowls it quicker and flatter outside off, lands it just forward of the good length area. Sciver-Brunt goes back to cut but only manages a thick edge that's smartly taken by Healy. Just the wicket Australia were searching for all morning. End of a fantastic innings from NSB, unfortunately no century for her.. 288/3
85.5 to SIR Dunkley, Cleaned up! Gardner strikes again. Was it a premeditated shot? A full delivery around off stump, Dunkley looks to heave it across the line and misses it as the ball hits her off stump. 318/4
121.2 to TT Beaumont, Gardner cleans up Beaumont! Her defence is finally broken. An extraordinary innings comes to an end. Full delivery around off, she tries to play it across the line and misses as the ball takes her off stump. 463/10
116.5 to S Ecclestone, Yorker on middle stump, goes for a flick and misses. It is right on her toes. McGrath appeals immediately for LBW and the umpire's finger goes up. Batter reviews it. Looks like there is no bat involved. Three reds light up. Ecclestone has to depart. Healy has a big laugh. 448/7
118.1 to KL Cross, Cross goes for duck! Peach of a delivery. Full length outside off, nips back in a bit as Cross looks to defend and takes her off stump. Two quick wickets for McGrath. 448/8
120.2 to L Filer, a little tickle, and the keeper is up in celebration! England lose their ninth, with ten runs still in arrears. Filer tried to slash that far away from her body, without really getting close to the pitch of the ball. This was a length ball around off, which moved away, and sharply so. Filer had a go with a fairly flat bat, and got the edge. 463/9

23.4 to P Litchfield, oh, bowled 'er! That's a beauty from Cross, hooping back in as Litchfield plays no stroke. England are on the board, and Cross has something to smile about after that dropped catch. Perfect length and the ball jagged back a long way to clatter into the top of off stump. Litchfield had looked good but departs just shy of a fifty on debut. 99/1
59.1 to A Gardner, wow, they've caught one now! Full and swinging, Gardner jabs down on it... squirted to second slip! Although they are going to check whether this might be a bump ball. Didn't look it from the reactions. Nope, very full but pitching in front of Gardner and then straight off the edge, before being juggled by Knight at slip. England have gone bang-bang-bang since lunch. 196/6
77.5 to AM King, edged to slip, Bell chimes in! Extra bounce and King fences off the back foot, only manages to steer a thick outside edge into the grateful hands of Knight, stood a few yards back. England break through again, King's dogged knock coming to an end. 257/8
43.4 to EA Perry, Chopped on! Filer takes the big wicket of Perry, again. Bangs in a short ball from around off, gets to seam in, Perry goes deep in her crease and plays a cut towards third man only for the ball to hit the stumps as she gets an inside edge. 149/2
45.1 to TM McGrath, Filer rattles McGrath! Brilliant delivery from the young pacer. Full length from around off, gets to seam in, McGrath goes for a late flick, the ball deflects off her front pad and the off stump is uprooted. Filer has a wide smile. 151/3
54.6 to JL Jonassen, timbeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrr! Fired into the blockhole and it scuds low under the bat as Jonassen aims a big slog-sweep, dismantling the stumps. England claim another, Ecclestone's first of the innings. Not sure about the shot selection, but Jonassen can repent at leisure back in the dressing room. 178/4
58.4 to BL Mooney, bowled 'er, Mooney chops on! Ecclestone is off and running, and England have the big one! This spun a good way out of the footmarks to defeat Mooney going back, she was looking to angle the bat on a late cut but ends up diverting the ball into her stumps. Falls 15 runs shy of becoming the third women (and second in this match) to have a century in all three formats. 195/5
60.3 to A Sutherland, flapped leg side... and another one taken! Sutherland toe-ends a pull at a short delivery, but picks out square leg! England are cock-a-hoop as Wyatt gobbles a simple catch and Australia slide further into trouble. 198/7
78.1 to AJ Healy, oh Alyssa... low full toss, plinked to midwicket! England claim the ninth and they have almost wrapped this innings up. Ecclestone is almost embarrassed to celebrate this one, she covers her hands as her team-mates converge. Healy could have put it anywhere, ends up chipping a catch to Lamb who holds on above her head. 257/9
78.5 to D Brown, pinned on the back leg! Ecclestone bags another five! Brown reviews but it looks a hopeful shout... beats the inside edge, slams into the pads and it's umpire's call, taking a healthy chunk of leg stump! Ecclestone celebrates again after claiming a maiden ten-for in Tests. She holds the ball aloft as the crowd applauds her from the pitch. Magnificent stuff from the England tweaker. 257/10

25.2 to SIR Dunkley, Edged and taken! Garth gets her first wicket in Test cricket. This was a perfect little outswinger, Dunkley looks to defend and gets a fine edge off to keeper. Healy, who is up to the stumps, jumps in joy. England are five down. 110/5
11.5 to EL Lamb, Lamb departs! Full length delivery on the leg stump, Lamb goes for a flick and misses, gets hit on front pad. McGrath appeals for LBW and the umpire's finger goes up. England review the decision. DRS confirms there is no bat involved. pitching in line, impact in line, and wickets will be umpire's call. McGrath screams in joy. 59/2
10.1 to TT Beaumont, Is she gone? Tossed up wide of off, Tammy looks to dig it out but it goes straight into the hands of Mooney at first slip. She is walking off the field and the umpire confirms it is out. Gardner in with the first-ball wicket!. 55/1
12.6 to Nat Sciver-Brunt, Why would you do that? Sciver-Brunt has gifted this wicket. A full delivery outside off stump, she goes for a pull on one knee, but there is no timing on it. Garth takes an excellent catch running in from short leg to keep England three down. 66/3
14.5 to HC Knight, Stuck on the crease! Pitched on a length from around off stump, sees a sharp turn, Knight moves across a little bit and goes for a flick on the back foot and gets hit on the front pad. DRS confirms Knight is trapped lbw. Umpire's call on impact. What a spell this has been from Gardner. England in trouble!. 73/4
32.3 to KL Cross, Nicked away! Gardner weaves her magic already. Cross was tested well and Gardner reaps rewards for some disciplined bowling. Bowls this full - another tempter - outside off and asks Cross to drive. She does so but only manages a feather behind as this one does not spin as the previous one did. Australia four strikes away now!. 141/6
36.4 to AE Jones, Stumping chance goes abegging! Bowls the arm ball slower through the air, Jones charges down and goes past it. Healy doesn't collect on the first go due to the extra bounce and then whips the bails off. By then, Jones has slid her bat in. The umpires want to be sure and refer it upstairs. Does Jones have her bat inside the crease, though? Oh no! She has her bat ON THE LINE and is a goner! Healy can't believe she has pulled it off despite not collecting it cleanly. A maiden Test five-for for Gardner. Jones tried to slide her bat with both hands and perhaps was limited - would have made it had she taken off her left hand perhaps. Nonetheless, Australia inch closer to a Test win.. 151/7
46.3 to S Ecclestone, Ecclestone plays back, hit on the pads... given! There's a review but this looked pretty adjacent, as the ball straightened on middle stump. No bat involved as she flicked across the line, on to ball-tracking, and it's hitting the top of middle! Sue Redfern's decision is upheld and Gardner has another. Australia two away from taking this Test. 175/8
48.4 to L Filer, bowled 'er! Gardner uproots another, her seventh of the innings. Filer defends on the back foot but plays fatefully inside the line and the ball just gives off stump a nudge on its way through. Australia one away. 177/9
48.6 to DN Wyatt, hit on the pad sweeping, gone! Redfern raises her finger again and although Wyatt asks for the DRS, the end is nigh for England. The ball scuttled through and hit the front knee as Wyatt attempted to access the leg side, and Hawk-Eye says it would have toppled middle and leg. All over at Trent Bridge, Australia have won by 89 runs! Gardner's 8 for 66 are the second-best innings figures in women's Tests. 178/10
