Australia Women

8.19pm Incidentally, if you thought (correctly) that this women's match was exciting, then you are perfectly primed for another humdinger that's brewing in Lyon ... and that has just got very lively indeed!. From Andrew Miller and Valkerie Baynes, good night!

8.15pm First blood to Australia ... but only just! The match looked to be over after England's woeful start with the bat, but a gutsy rally around Nat Sciver's 64 was followed by a feisty display with the ball, led by Sophie Ecclestone, and in the field with Sarah Taylor immense once again. But Alyssa Healy's 66 anchored a tense chase. Two points on the board!

Muneeb: ""Can i get my first ever comment published on ESPNcricinfo?Please"" Go on then... thanks for tuning in!

Manas: "Taylor should give over the gloves to Jones, Beaumont or Knight and focus on her batting. I have noticed that she isn't at her peak since she returned" Did you see her stumping? No way!

42.4KH Brunt to DM Kimmince, WIDE, 5 runs, what a way to end it! Fired down the leg side, Taylor cannot gather ... and it's all over! What a thrilling match, what an anticlimactic end!.
42.3KH Brunt to DM Kimmince, No run, poked to Knight who cuts off the run.
42.2KH Brunt to DM Kimmince, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, lofted high in the air, deep midwicket can't cut that off! Massive boundary, as Brunt sighs deeply ....
42.1KH Brunt to DM Kimmince, No run, drilled back down the pitch, and did that carry back to Brunt? Not quite ... ooh ....
End of over 42. 1 runs this over. 169/8 after 252 balls.

Peter: "Oz will run out of overs... you heard it here first" It's on ...

Sarvan: "It seems value of 1 run is equal to 10 runs" It's like watching the baseball all over again!

Darren: "Sorry to distract you from the conclusion of this great match but is Taylor wearing pads at keeper?" Fair question, if so, they are little more than shin pads!

Sriram: "Haynes should play at 3 and with Lanning and Perry moving down. Haynes is a frighteningly good player at the domestic level in that position "

Vinod Rajpal: "Lovely to see so many comments are flowing ..... Mark my words AM..this would be a TIE !!" All it takes is one to get the ice broken ... comments and wickets...

Don't forget, as this match finishes, another epic England Women's contest begins... the World Cup semi-final against USA in Lyon

Gavin: "AUS can win this by knocking a couple of singles an over. Why the ramp shot?" Well quite

Jamie Dow: "Blimey! That's a really, really daft way to get out when you need another 28 runs off a shed load of overs ..... if Aus lose, that's gonna feel sore."

End of over 35. 2 runs this over. 153/7 after 209 balls.

Sriram: "This game is much more nail biting edge of the seat stuff than half the CWC matches " Ain't that the truth. Still, I've enjoyed the World Cup, a lot better than not!

JT: "Good to see Jamie Dow's got his season ticket back again !!" No need to be snide ... send relevant feedback, get published! (Or irrelevant if my mood takes it ...)
