    2.1 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
    8.2 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
    13.3 bullet throw from Gibbs, and Redmayne is toast! Comfortably out of the frame as Bryce gathered well. Another sweep, half-stopped at backward square, Gibbs swept in from fine leg to gather the bobbling ball, and the second run was over-ambitious 74/3
    17.4 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

    19.2 driven hard, but inside-edged out to the covers, off the pads... and that's a direct hit at the non-striker's end! Bryce rushes round from the stumps, flings off her gauntlet, picks up and pings to perfection! 109/5
    19.5 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

    0.3 dropped at square leg, but definitely a runout! Full ball on middle, swept to square leg, fielder lunges forward and shells the chance at shin height. But kamikaze running by Adams taking off on contact. She's sent back and rightfully so as the fielder scrambles to recover the ball after the drop and relays to Sarah Taylor who does her best Harlem Globetrotters imitation with a nifty behind the back flick off of the bails with Adams still a few feet short. 0/1

    6.2 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

    8.4 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
    16.2 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
    14.2 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
    17.1 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
    18.5 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
    18.3 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

    19.2 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
