1st over: Australia 2-0 (Healy 1, Mooney 1) Away we go. Frankie Mackay will open the bowling and open the batting today, in the absence of Devine. The only word thus far is that she’s sick, rather than injured. Wishing her all the best. Mackay bowls off-spin, and she got Healy out in the first over the other night. So Healy is watchful starting the match today, taking four balls to push a single along the ground through cover. Mooney adds another. No aerial shots, no advancing down the wicket.

Sophie Devine isn’t playing today, I’m just looking for information on what is presumably an injury absence for the captain. So a change-up to the NZ team at the top of the order, and the inclusion of Thamsyn Newton. For Australia, teenage speedster Darcie Brown will make her debut, which is exciting. Tayla Vlaeminck is being rotated out of the side to help her return from long-term foot fractures.
