Ellyse Perry2747622.8112410002
92.5 to YH Bhatia, leading edge caught by Mooney diving forward at gully. After threatening for so long, Ellyse Perry finally has a wicket. Full ball tailing into her a tad on leg stump, and I think it straightened a bit after pitching. She was too early in trying to flick it, gets a leading edge that lobs up and is dying on Mooney, who has to dive forward and grab it inches off the ground.. 261/4
142.3 to P Vastrakar, brilliantly caught by Mooney at gully 300th international wicket for Ellyse Perry. This was bowled on a sixth stump line, Vastrakar looking to drive forcefully through cover, gets an outside edge that flies to Mooney's left, she dives and takes it one-handed.. 359/7
Darcie Brown1004904.90409010
Stella Campbell1424723.35638010
126.2 to T Bhatia, poked through to the keeper. First Test wicket for Campbell. Good bowling, pitched on back of a length on off stump, gets it to nip away off the seam, and Taniya ends up feeling for it with feet static, gets a goodish edge that travels straight into the keeper's gloves.. 319/6
143.4 to DB Sharma, given lbw! Short of a length, this doesn't get up anything like Sharma expected, went for the pull and gets taken on the back leg. Think that pitched outside leg, it was so short. Yep, outside leg by a long way. 369/8
Tahlia McGrath1634002.50804110
Sophie Molineux2384521.951145000
25.1 to Shafali Verma, sliced to mid off! Finally a catch is held by McGrath. Molineux deserved this. Flighted it up, drifting in, Verma tries to swipe this against the spin over mid on, it skews off the outer half of the bat and floats to mid off, McGrath drops to her knees and cradles the gift of a catch.. 93/1
80.4 to PG Raut, Punam has walked off! She has given herself out caught behind! Beautiful delivery, outside off, lured Punam Raut into a defensive stroke away from her body, it spun and bounced and must have brushed the edge. Healy and Lanning went up. The umpire said not out and Punam just walked off. She could have easily stayed and the not out decision would have remained with no DRS.. 217/3
Ashleigh Gardner30115211.731548000
68.1 to S Mandhana, caught at a catching mid off! Mandhana departs! She fell for the trap. McGrath was placed at a catching mid off near the bowler, Gardner looped up a lovely tempter outside off, Mandhana skipped out but it just dropped on her late, she drove on the up but hit it in the air straight to McGrath and Australia finally take the chance on offer.. 195/2

Jhulan Goswami2273321.501123000
6.4 to BL Mooney, cleaned her up! Goswami strikes. Full and straight, shaping back at the left hander, Mooney aiming to whip it through the leg side, gets an inside edge and into leg stump. 14/1
22.4 to AJ Healy, she's nicked it to the keeper. Magnificent line and bowling. Kept this on that perfect length where the batter is uncertain whether to go front or back, gets a hint of movement away too, Healy is prodding forward, gets a faint but audible edge that the keeper gobbles up.. 63/2
Meghna Singh1925422.84886011
83.5 to A Sutherland, nicks it behind. That's a peach of an outswinger. First Test wicket for Meghna too. The perfect length and line to have Sutherland coming on the front foot to defend, shapes away just the right amount to kiss the edge of the bat and go through to the keeper.. 216/6
87.5 to S Molineux, trapped in front. This is skilfull bowling by a young pacer. She's got the gift of making the ball move, and when the line threatens the stumps and the length is such that the batter isn't comfortable coming decisively forward or back, this is what happens - Molineux caught on the crease to one that comes back in and hits her pads.. 220/7
Pooja Vastrakar21.464932.261056000
32.1 to MM Lanning, given, huge moment! Vastrakar with a massive breakthrough. Good length, nips back, looks straight but appears there was an inside edge. The line for the lbw looked good, but there was bat involved.. 80/3
49.4 to TM McGrath, she's cut this straight to point. Short and wide outside off, she lays into that, doesn't bother to keep it down, and it goes right down the fielder's throat. She'll not be happy with herself, could have hit that anywhere.. 119/4
90.5 to G Wareham, edged behind. India continue to make inroads even as Australia are within touching distance of the follow-on. This was on a fourth-fifth stump line, shaping slightly away, she could have left it alone but opted to make a big stride out to defend. The shape means it takes a think snick off the shoulder of the bat and settles into the keeper's gloves.. 223/8
Rajeshwari Gayakwad1816303.508311000
Deepti Sharma1663622.25775000
78.3 to A Gardner, taken at mid-off! India have their breakthrough. Tossed up outside off, comes down the pitch and drives but sends a skimming, low catch to the captain who takes it well. 208/5
95.6 to D Brown, plumb in front. Arm ball on the stumps, she was looking for a big swipe across the line by going deep and opening her stance, it skids on and raps her right in front of the stumps.. 240/9

17.5 to S Mandhana, magnificently caught at deep midwicket by Gardner. This was in the slot to slog-sweep and Mandhana connected quite well. That ball seemed to be heading to the boundary, but Gardner sprinted to her right from a very square position and dived full length to pluck the ball inches from the ground. Stunning bit of fielding that.. 70/1
Ashleigh Gardner1013113.10403000
20.3 to YH Bhatia, gone through She was pushing forward to that, but Gardner gets the ball to drift in nicely, pitches and goes straight on. There's a gap between bat and pad with Yastika pushing forward and the ball bursts through that to shatter stumps.. 74/2
Georgia Wareham301214.00122000
33.2 to Shafali Verma, given lbw! Wareham has her maiden Test wicket. Full at middle and leg, Verma trapped on the crease. Looked a little leg-side but the finger goes up. Replay shows it's very plumb!. 122/3

Pooja Vastrakar511312.60232000
