BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Katherine Brunt21.146052.83948000
2.5 to AJ Healy, caught behind! Brunt sucked her in with a beautiful outswinger! Full angled into off and it shapes away late, Healy drives to drive on the up, gets a faint edge and it's a simple catch for Jones. 1/1
66.1 to RL Haynes, Blows the glove off! Caught behind! Haynes cops a brute! Back of a length with a scrambled seam, it really rears off the length, Haynes fends at it and it catches the shoulder of the bat as she takes the bottom hand off the bat, the edge flies through to Jones. England are delighted. 212/5
88.3 to A Gardner, Given lbw! Gardner reviews. Good delivery, length ball, pitching outside off, threatening to shape away but it nipped back off the seam and beat the inside edge to hit the back pad again. Carbon copy of McGrath's. Has this also done too much? No. It is crashing into leg. Decision stands and Gardner falls. Superb delivery.. 296/6
100.1 to A Sutherland, what a delivery! That's an absolute ripper. Good length at middle and off, nips away to beat the edge and takes the top of off. Won't see better. 328/8
104.1 to JL Jonassen, edged, caught behind! Brunt has her five-wicket haul and it's been a brilliant display. In the channel outside off, Jonassen playing away from the body and it's another catch for Amy Jones. And Australia have declared. 337/9
Anya Shrubsole1853812.11905000
3.2 to BL Mooney, caught behind! Another one gone driving on the up! Shrubsole pulled the length ball and got some lovely shape away wide of off, Mooney didn't need to play but pushed away from her body on the front foot, gets a thick edge and Jones claims another one!. 4/2
Kate Cross1746703.947413000
Nat Sciver1644132.56764100
14.5 to EA Perry, the big wicket! Short outside off, gets big on Perry who top-edges the pull, it goes straight up and to the left of the keeper, she runs and pouches a good catch. That caught Perry by surprise and Sciver fist-pumps in delight. What a massive wicket and the talisman of the Australian side walks back. 43/3
65.4 to MM Lanning, edged and finally taken at slip! Lovely delivery from Sciver. Fuller outswinger but not a half-volley, Lanning pushes at it with an open face, gets a thick edge and Knight moving low to her right holds on to the sharp chance. Lanning misses out on that elusive century. 212/4
96.6 to TM McGrath, caught behind! Loose shot off the last ball of the day! Good length well wide of off, no need to play but she tried to lash a square drive and it just swung away late, she got a thin edge through to Jones who claims her fifth catch of the day!. 327/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Darcie Brown1233913.25596013
2.1 to L Winfield-Hill, edged, taken at second slip! Neat grab. Full outside off, Winfield-Hill lured into the drive as the ball just shapes away a touch. Maiden Test wicket for Brown. 6/1
Ellyse Perry20.525732.73946013
11.1 to TT Beaumont, big appeal for lbw and given! Will Beaumont review? Yes, she does. A length delivery that nipped back. First thing will be if there's an inside edge but the review wasn't instant. Then it will be height. Certainly no bat involved. Takes the back leg. This looks close. Hitting the top of middle. Lovely bowling from Perry. 23/2
35.6 to SIR Dunkley, Perry strikes. The angled bat from Dunkley and she drags it back on. Back of a length outside off, Dunkley is tentative on the back foot block and that proves costly. Perry is pumped. 79/4
105.5 to KL Cross, Cross holes out to long-leg and that's the end of the innings. Short ball outside off, she pulls but the top-edge carries all the way to the deep fielder where Brown makes no mistake, diving forward to snaffle a good catch. They check for a fair delivery and it is one. 297/10
Tahlia McGrath1013513.50432005
99.1 to S Ecclestone, Given lbw! This looks plumb. Ecclestone reviews. But she wiped across her front pad trying to whip a straight full delivery. No bat involved and ball tracking has it smashing middle and leg. The umpire had no hesitation in giving it. Great effort by Ecclestone. 269/9
Annabel Sutherland2156222.959910011
24.6 to NR Sciver, gone! The nipbacker, cuts in sharply and Sciver gets a thin inside-edge on the punch, no issues for Healy and the umpire has her finger up. That cramped Sciver for room. Aussies have their 3rd. 46/3
44.5 to AE Jones, good catch by Brown! In-angler cramps Jones on the pull and she skies it towards mid-on, Brown keeps her eyes on the ball as she runs to her right and tumbles to take the catch two-handed over her shoulder. The Aussies run to mob her. England lose a wicket just when things seemed to be in control. 118/5
Alana King2645812.231174000
47.4 to KH Brunt, Brunt walks back shaking her head as King is mobbed by her mates after taking a debut Test wicket. Nicely flighted and drifting into middle and leg, pitches in line and Brunt goes back to defend a fairly fullish ball, misses and it strikes her high on the pad, loud appeal is upheld and Brunt reviews. But HawkEye shows it to be umpire's call on hitting which means it is clipping the stumps and Brunt has to go. What a moment for King. And with that wicket, the players head back for some tea. 120/6
Jess Jonassen711512.14311000
66.3 to A Shrubsole, chipped to cover-point! Excellent catch by McGrath! Good length but wide of off, Shrubsole tried to invent a cut shot that wasn't on and just chipped it to cover-point, McGrath dived low to her left and pouched it beautifully. 169/8
Ashleigh Gardner902713.00371100
60.2 to CE Dean, holes out to deep square! Dean panics and slog sweeps off a top edge and it carries all the way into the deep and McGrath who was stationed perfectly takes the catch comfortably. 150/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Katherine Brunt922432.66402000
0.3 to AJ Healy, Healy gone for a pair! Look at Brunt's reaction. She roars in the departing batter's face. Lovely outswinger with extra bounce, shaping away from off and Healy defends forward but it takes the edge and Jones does the job behind the stumps. The English crowd around Brunt as she celebrates. Great start for them. 1/1
4.4 to RL Haynes, 50th Test wicket for Brunt! This is a fine period of play for England. Swinging into the pads of Haynes who gets an inside-edge onto pad as she goes back to defend, lobs to Beaumont at short-leg who takes a sharp catch. The umpire was quick to raise the finger and Haynes walks off. Brunt has her second. 12/2
44.3 to MM Lanning, edged, taken at first slip! Brunt's outstanding Test continues. Full outside off, there's that shape away, Lanning goes into the drive and it's safely held by the captain. 130/5
Anya Shrubsole813003.75324000
Nat Sciver712914.14294000
56.6 to A Gardner, top edged, taken at deep backward square! The short ball works. A well-directed delivery, Gardner not holding back, doesn't keep the pull down. 178/6
Sophie Ecclestone2446812.831087000
33.3 to EA Perry, pad-first and a loud appeal for LBW is upheld. Perry has a chat with Mooney and walks off. Drifting into off and middle, Perry lunges forward to block but the ball hits the pad first and the umpire thinks about it before raising the finger, good call as it was striking Perry low on the pad and HawkEye shows it to be crashing into the stumps. 103/3
Kate Cross913804.22344000
Charlie Dean712423.42282000
42.3 to BL Mooney, a wicket just before lunch and the obdurate knock of Mooney comes to a end. Dipping full-toss on middle and leg, Mooney misses the sweep, is hit on the front toe and the ball is going onto hit the stumps. She wastes a review as well. That will be lunch as the players walk off. 123/4
62.2 to TM McGrath, cleaned her up! Through the gate. Nicely bowled. Tossed up, McGrath drives, spins back into the stumps. 199/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ellyse Perry502815.60204002
21.4 to L Winfield-Hill, Haynes with another good catch and Winfield-Hill's innings is over. Full on middle, she flicks but Haynes at short mid-wicket times her leap to perfection and takes an overhead catch. Sharp work. 94/2
Darcie Brown501813.60213000
33.1 to HC Knight, Knight plays across the line to a full ball and is trapped in front. She falls 2 short of a fifty. Gets the front foot across to flick but misses a middle and leg ball, the umpire raises the finger and HawkEye shows it to be clipping. A wicket at the right moment for Australia. 166/3
Jess Jonassen703705.28225000
Ashleigh Gardner512505.00163000
Annabel Sutherland1306935.30478200
40.3 to NR Sciver, Lanning at square leg with a good catch and Sciver is gone. Another twist to this fascinating game. Short on off, pulled in the air and Lanning takes it with both hands to her right. Will that wicket force England to shut shop?. 218/4
42.2 to AE Jones, caught at deep mid-wicket. Mooney with the calm head. Length ball outside off, Jones heaves it in the air but doesn't get the distance, Mooney settles and takes a low catch in front of her. 224/5
44.1 to KH Brunt, top-edge and gone. Sutherland with the third wicket. Can the Aussies now push for a win? Short dug in and Brunt edges the pull behind. She has a word with the next batter coming in as she walks off. 236/7
Tahlia McGrath402616.50164002
14.1 to TT Beaumont, McGrath strikes first-ball! What a good low catch by Haynes at short cover. Full and wide outside off, Beaumont can't keep the drive down and it's travelling to Haynes' left, she latches on and that's the end of the dangerous Beaumont. 52/1
Alana King913924.33273000
43.2 to SIR Dunkley, what a good tumbling catch by Mooney at long-on and Dunkley has to walk back. She can't believe that she has not placed it wide of Mooney. Lofts well but it's in Mooney's range, she judges it beautifully and takes it two-handed. Australia keep taking wickets at the right time. King's family are delighted in the stands. 233/6
45.5 to CE Dean, top-edge and straight up. King went round the wicket and tosses it up, Dean slogsweeps but can only top-edge it, Healy takes the catch. They are checking for a back foot no-ball here. The third umpire reckons that the first point of contact is not touching the return crease and goes with the bowler. King definitely touched the crease but not when she made first contact which was crucial. 244/9
