Amazing figures for Farrell.
23.0-11-18-2 at 0.78
Don't say an economy of less than 1 too much...
Interesting parallel beween the two bowling performances is that the wickets have all been shared between three out of the seven bowlers used... so far, at least.
EDIT: And that wicket doesn't do any harm to her figures...
EDIT 2: Haynes is having quite a debut, 1/0 to go with the 98.
Great little knock by Laura Marsh, last pair adding 59 so far to take us close to the Aussie total.
Looks like scoring quickly hasn't been easy, so It will be a challenge for Australia to set England a target. England not likely to be that enthusiastic in chasing because they only need to draw to retain the Ashes so you'd expect Australia are going to have to do all the running.
I don't see how it's going to become anything other than a minority sport if no-one shows it or reports it. I've looked high and low on the net for places showing it in London or for TV channels showing it and found nothing (but lots for the Men's), and there is also hardly anything reported about it in the press. It's rubbish! Anyway... :) what's the score now?
Should be a very interesting last day. With Rolton and Blackwell in, and actually scoring some runs this time, they have the chance to press on and set England a total to chase. And there's some quality batting after them; the likes of Sthalekar, Fields, Poulton, Haynes, Ebsary and Perry can all bat. And Rene Farrell's not bad either...
Really looking forward to it.
Also, congratulations to Karen Rolton for reaching 1000 Test runs as well. Just the 10th person to get there, and at an average of 58.94, so very impressive.
OK, so England need 273 to win, with lunch in five minutes. Should be interesting.
Suprised the Aussies didn't give us a few overs before lunch, given that they are the ones that need to win.
Not saying I agree with their decision though.
