    Moved this since it's still ongoing.

    Good to see us win the T20... the batting's looking a bit light now, Clare Taylor has gone home injured. Massive blow.

    MCG outfield nice and wet, slows down the shots even more. Reduced to 16 overs per side.

    Fair play to England. Worthy win. Didn't plan on watching it, in all honesty, but my sleeping patterns are still all over the place after the Ashes and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The only thing stopping it from being a total farce is the fact that England have a few sorts in their team.

    Yeah, I had to get up early and caught the beginning of our innings. Ellyse Perry looked pretty good I thought, and quick enough to cause the batsmen a bit of trouble with her pace.

    Anyway, 2-0, very good stuff, especially since we're a bit depleted.

    I'm impressed with England's performance atm, especially with their batting. The two Taylors are big losses to their line-up, and Beth Morgan going home too really tests the depth. Their catching was a bit atrocious today though. Not too great an exhibit for the game, but Sthalekar and Blackwell took a couple of pretty good catches to lift it up.

    Yeah, she definitely bowled much better today than in the last T20. I hear that Tony Greig's been giving her a bit of advice about some variations, in particular the off-cutter, so it'll be interesting to see whether that shows up in any of the remaining T20s, or the Test match.

    It was a very well-paced chase, I'd say. Cleverly done. Played.

    Whatever happened to Katherine Brunt?
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I believe that she's injured her shin. She played in a couple of the ODIs. Don't know how bad it is, or whether she'll be right for next game, but she's still here with the squad.
