Erin Burns20111910.952010
66b to GP Redmayne, thumped back, taken this time! Burns dropped a similar chance off Smith early doors, but gets her hands in position to snag this one. Firmly struck by Redmayne, but taken a few inches above the ground. Another timely intervention for Phoenix. 87/3
Kirstie Gordon2073021.504010
91b to GM Hennessy, tossed up and beats the swing to leg! Little bit of dip as Hennessy attempts to come down, slides under the bat, and rattles the timbers. Gordon strikes, Fire fizzling out again. 119/7
95b to N Harvey, tossed up, Harvey nudges off her pads, Phoenix go up for lbw... Jones now reviews, and this could be tight, with the batter playing from the crease and leg stump visible. No bat involved, was it going down on the angle? No! Hawk-Eye has it smashing leg stump, and that's Harvey done for! This is becoming another grisly collapse for Fire. 120/9
Emily Arlott1581310.861010
74b to SN Luff, rapped on the pads, Luff shuffling down... was it doing too much? May have been outside the line, Sarah Bartlett wasn't convinced. But Jones reviews after a chat with Arlott. And that is quickly proven to be a brilliant decision, Hawk-Eye showing the ball would have got up close and personal with leg stump! Beat the bat, struck in line, Arlott's inswinger does for Luff. 97/4
Georgia Elwiss1541901.262010
Abtaha Maqsood2043211.602111
27b to HK Matthews, floats this up nice and slow, 45mph, Matthews goes for the thrash over mid-off - but picks out the fielder! She was attempting that trademark, back-arched, uppercut-cum-drive, but didn't get anywhere near the connection she was after, and Arlott pouched it. 36/1
Phoebe Franklin52601.201000
Eve Jones51711.401000
80b to SJ Taylor, full toss, Taylor steps out but misses with her swing... and Jones whips off the bails! Superbly done by Amy Jones, the heir to Sarah Taylor's England gauntlets, and she pulls off a dazzling bit of work to undo the senior stumper! Taken on the full wide of off stump, the hands immediately went back to tickle the timbers, just in time to beat Taylor's attempt to get the back foot down. Fantastic work. 106/5
