    8.3 caught at long off! This was tossed very high on off, Mooney tried to go inside out over cover but lofts it straighter to long off, Bates camps under it and just hangs on after a hint of a fumble! 71/1
    12.4 cleaned bowled! Healy stepped across her stumps, trying to flick this fine, Rowe fired full and straight, Healy missed and Rowe hit, it crashed into middle and leg 99/3
    10.4 caught behind! Lanning shuffled across the crease prior to the delivery, she fired full and wide, Lanning tried to whip to leg, gets a thin outside edge and Martin takes an easy catch 87/2
    14.2 caught at long on! Gardner skipped down the track and lofts to long on, Bates waits right on the rope, drops it as she falls to the ground, she sticks the hand out to knock the ricochet up and catches it at the third bite! The third umpire is called to check the catch but it all looks OK. Clearly a catch. Three bites but it never touched the turf 108/4
    15.6 huge LBW appeal! Given out! Villani reviews. She stepped outside off, to try and sweep, it pitched well outside off and spun a bit to hit the front pad. No bat involved. Ultra edge confirms that. Ball tracking says the impact was umpire's call! Just a fraction of the ball hit in line. It goes on to hit. So the decision stands. But Australia keep the review 122/5
    not out
    18.2 top edge caught at backward point! Well bowled, tossed up outside off, holding the pace back a touch, Perry skips down tries to launch straight down the ground, slices a leading edge as she closes the face up to backward point and an easy catch is taken 141/6
    19.6 caught at backward point! Molineux stepped outside off, Devine followed going wide and short, she guides a cut waist high to Kerr who holds the easy chance 153/7

    14.2 given lbw, and that is likely to be it for New Zealand Bates was down the pitch, but that looked very straight. A quicker ball, Bates aiming to work through the leg side 99/7
    0.4 given lbw after a long pause from the umpire, swinging across the line of a straight delivery. Peterson questions if it's high and calls the review. Back of a length, clips the top of the front pad as first point of contact. And it's smashing leg stump 6/1
    1.3 through the gate and big early problems for New Zealand! A lovely delivery, full with some swing back, but there's a large gate as Devine drives. Smashes into middle stump 7/2
    2.5 goes for the reverse sweep, given lbw! No reviews left, but that looked pretty straight. Full at middle and off, tries to paddle it through short third man. Well, well. Impact was outside off. Review would have saved her 13/3
    11.3 lovely piece of bowling and top keeping, tossed up with more air outside off, plays over the top of the ball, sharp take from Healy and Martin can't push her foot back beyond the crease 79/4
    13.1 taken at deep midwicket, gets a big leading edge aiming through the leg side. Perry judges it very well, loses her balance and topples backwards, but holds on 94/5
    13.5 wonderful catch, magnificent glovework! A back-of-a-length delivery, aiming to run it down to third man, takes a healthy outside edge and Healy rides the bounce superbly 97/6
    16.1 and strikes first ball back! Short of a length outside off, tries to go over the off stump but only manages to find backward point 115/8
    16.5 demolishes the stumps as Rowe charges down the pitch, swings to leg, loses all shape on the stroke and is castled 118/9
    17.3 and that's that, caught at backward point! A sliced drive and Haynes pulls off a superb catch, low to her left 120/10
