First over: Australia 0-0 (Haynes 0, Healy 0) The England players take a knee before Katherine Brunt, fresh ball in hand, steams in for the first ball. There’s a bit of outswing in evidence, Haynes fends it off. Brunt continues to hit her mark for the remainder of the over, and Haynes continues to defend astutely. But that’s a decent opening over from the England bowler – a maiden.
Not long to the first ball now. Out stride Healy and Haynes and we’ll get up and running.
