Lauren Bell20101920.951040
48b to HK Matthews, the swing wins it! Bell unfurls another inswinger, Matthews gets inside her drive, and Wellington at backward point clings onto a flying edge. That's a huge wicket. 52/3
49b to SJ Taylor, massive inswinger and Taylor's gone first ball! We've got a review, but that looked plumb to me. Taylor was deep in her crease, feet going nowhere. Maybe an inside-edge could save her? Nope... now, was it doing too much? That's the other consideration. Nope, smashing leg!. 52/4
Charlotte Taylor1011911.903000
59b to SN Luff, one thump too many! Taylor flings it out wide, correctly anticipating another gallop to the pitch, and Luff is nowhere in the frame as the bails are whipped off!. 65/5
Amanda-Jade Wellington20111920.953000
26b to AJ Macleod, Swept, top-edged, caught! First ball, and there's the wicket! Flighted delivery, enticing the slog-sweep, a looping top-edge and swallowed at short backward square. Easy game!. 26/2
93b to P Cleary, another simple stumping! A giddy gallop to the pitch, fired past the ambitious slog to leg, past the off stump too, and into the braced gloves of Rudd. 100/7

Piepa Cleary1552711.805010
10b to DN Wyatt, short on the legs, goes to pull and misses but there's a big noises as it passes the hip. Big shout for caught behind denied. They appeal for DRS. Ultraedge shows it came off the glove. Decision overturned. Wyatt was in a groove but she has to go. Lost in all the DRS excitement was a superlative take down leg by Sarah Taylor.. 16/1
Hayley Matthews2061500.750000
Georgia Hennessy1551300.861000
Nicole Harvey1552311.532110
44b to SIR Dunkley, waist high full toss on middle stump, Dunkley's eyes light up trying to heave this over the leg side rope but mishits this high over cover in the ring and this time a very easy chance is held onto.. 58/2
