Alice Capsey2081710.851000
89b to SJ Taylor, chipped into the deep, and Capsey gets Taylor with the ball instead! Didn't time her clip off the full length, a good running catch, grabbed low at deep midwicket. The end of a threatening innings, but Taylor didn't quite ignite. 103/4
Tash Farrant2072411.202010
100b to P Cleary, round the wicket, full-length slap down the ground, but that's high on the bat, a looping chance to mid-off, and Fire have fizzled at the death!. 112/6
Mady Villiers20112111.053000
11b to BF Smith, Back of a length, a flash through the line, and caught behind! Skids on with the arm, a thin nick, a bit of a bobble from Bryce, but she kept her hands soft and the second attempt melted in. 5/1
Dane van Niekerk20101010.500000
42b to HK Matthews, sticks in the deck, and decked into the sticks! Matthews, on the back foot, tries to impart some humpty into a back-foot slap, but inside-edges into her stumps. Whatever was discussed by Invincibles has worked!. 52/2

Bryony Smith2092411.202100
86b to MK Villiers, George with a double, triple juggle but holds on at deep midwicket. Villiers charges a full length ball. George with a far simpler effort that the diving catch she clutched onto earlier. Only has to cover 10 yards or so to this skied slog. Gets into position in plenty of time to settle her feet, but that bobbles the ball multiple times before taking it for an adventurous catch.. 78/6
Piepa Cleary20101810.902000
97b to E Gray, this time a charge, and this time the zing bails and stumps light up in legitimate fashion. Gray is beaten between bat and pad on a good length ball after charging down the pitch. Taylor collects outside leg stump and flicks the bails back so sharply that it's ambiguous at first whether this is stumping or bowled. But it was Taylor's work for sure.. 97/9
Hayley Matthews2072331.153000
82b to FC Wilson, length ball on fifth stump, another charge and this time skews a lofted drive to extra cover on the ring. Simple catch shuffling left and falling forward at knee height on the ring.. 75/5
93b to J Gardner, tries to repeat the shot to another short and wide ball outside off, but this time it balloons off the splice to extra cover. Simple catch for Luff backpedaling from the ring to her left.. 92/7
95b to NE Farrant, George is wearing a giant magnet in the field today. Farrant charges a full ball on fourth stump trying to loft over extra cover, George is now on the off side ring for the left-hander and jogs back to her right to take the easiest and most drama-free of her three catches in this innings.. 93/8
Georgia Hennessy1581200.801010
Nicole Harvey1551120.730010
32b to A Capsey, goes to pull but too full for the shot and pays the price. Harvey floats this up on a fullish length, it was a front foot ball that Capsey went onto the back foot for. She knows she's in trouble but continues with the shot anyway and swipes across the line in vain.. 34/2
72b to D van Niekerk, nominee for catch of the tournament by Katie George at deep midwicket! Short on fifth stump, shuffle across to heave a pull toward the leg side rope. George never hesitated charging in off the boundary. There wasn't much elevation to this shot from van Niekerk but George covered 15 yards and dove forward full extension to pluck this inches from the turf. 10/10 on the judge's cards from Switzerland, Brazil, Canada and the Ukraine!. 65/4
Hannah Baker105910.901000
44b to GJ Gibbs, flighted full on fourth stump, Gibbs misses a sweep and is given out lbw. She decides to walk off without using the review! That looked like a dubious call live. After chatting with Wilson, they've opted against using it. The ball was turning in to middle and off and she was struck in line. Replays show it was hitting middle. So it would've been a review lost had she burned it. Gibbs had shuffled well outside off initially but in trying to sweep brought her front leg flying open back in line with the stumps.. 44/3
