• Ashes slipping away in the rain at Taunton
England have moved a step closer to certain defeat in the Ashes after the second day of the Taunton Test, in which rain wiped out the entire afternoon and evening sessions.
Australia, fully aware that a draw in this match will see them retain the Ashes, were again content simply to bat out time, with Ellyse Perry spending seven overs in the “nervous 90s”before finally bringing up three figures.
