5.3 to Shafali Verma, caught at mid on! Sutherland hangs on. A shorter length ball, not dissimilar to the one Mandhana was dropped on in the second over, she tried to pull but miscued hitting it flat to Sutherland on the circle and Sutherland takes the catch well. 43/2
Megan Schutt403508.7534010
Jess Jonassen402426.00112021
4.1 to S Mandhana, Given lbw! Looks plumb. No review. Mandhana walks off. This was fired in flat and straight, she tried to sweep, it hit her on the back leg flush infront of off.. 41/1
6.4 to H Kaur, stumped! By accident! Healy gets lucky. This was drifting in, beautifully bowled, Kaur runs down and takes a wild swing, it slides through the gate, misses leg, it hits Healy on the knee and bounces onto the stumps! Healy didn't touch it with her gloves but Kaur is still stumped by a mile!. 47/3
Delissa Kimmince402416.0040010
15.6 to JI Rodrigues, Kimmince pins Jemimah, the batter has been given out lbw once again. She challenges the on-field out decision, but this looks a lot closer than the previous one. Full and straight from over the wicket, Jemimah flicks and does not make contact. Rapped on the front pad well below the knee-roll in line with middle. Pretty adjacent, three reds, and off you go Jemimah. So, Australia get the breakthrough. 100/4

Deepti Sharma401704.25121000
Rajeshwari Gayakwad403117.7572100
8.3 to MM Lanning, Caught behind! Beautifully bowled! Tossed up, she skipped down but didn't get to the pitch, she drives on the up, gets a thin edge and Bhatia takes a nice catch! She could have taken the bails off to stump her but was confident the umpire would give the catch. 55/2
Shikha Pandey3.501433.65131000
5.4 to BL Mooney, caught at backward point! Mooney feeling the pressure a touch. It was a back of a length ball, she moved towards the bowler and backs away but just slices a cut shot straight to backward point. Easy catch for Gayakwad. 32/1
16.3 to A Sutherland, Excellent work from Bhatia behind the stumps once again. Reddy gives her a big hug. Sutherland shimmies out, this is full and wide of off, the ball is away from her reach. But, it is within Bhatia's grasp. She stretches out, collects the ball coolly, and whips the bails off like a boss. Made that look ridiculously easy. 101/7
19.2 to A Gardner, full-toss on off, not above the waistline, surprises Gardner, she splices it high into the air. Pandey runs in from her followthrough and grabs the return catch. 113/9
Arundhati Reddy403308.2544000
Poonam Yadav401944.75141101
9.5 to AJ Healy, caught and bowled! Just a 63kph leg break does the trick. This was a better length, Healy came down to it but wasn't to the pitch, tried to work to long on, closed the face, got a leading edge and it floated back to Yadav!. 67/3
11.3 to RL Haynes, Poonam strikes another blow! Lobs up a wrong'un, it lures the batter out and goes past the outside edge. Delightful flight and India are back in this. Bhatia continues her fine shift behind the stumps. 76/4
11.4 to EA Perry, Poonam is on a roll, she sends back Perry for a golden duck. She lobs up another wrong'un, Perry dares to step out. She is done in by the variation. Poonam sneaks through the gate and hits leg stump. What a double-strike from Poonam. 76/5
13.5 to JL Jonassen, 58kph, tossed up on middle and breaks away sharply, yet another wrong'un. She finds the edge again. Top work from Bhatia this time, after denying Poonam the hat-trick in her previous over. She snaffles it and sends Jonassen back. She dared to sweep against the break and paid the price. 82/6
