Australia chasing 218 to beat England: Women’s Ashes, second ODI – live! | Sport

2.14pm EDT 14:14 23rd over: Austria 102-3 ( Perry 36, Haynes 29) Haynes squints through the bars of her helmet at Laura Marsh, watches, watches, then takes two steps down the pitch and drives just to the side of the stumps for four. She smiles, pleased. And so she should be. Gorgeous. 2.11pm EDT 14:11

Beaumont brilliant but Australia too good. The most important component to a big ODI innings is partnerships and England never did that, their highest 65 between Beaumont and Knight for the second wicket. There was no collapse (until the end), rather, each time they had Austalia under pressure a bowling change was made by Lanning a wicket fell and the stand and Beaumont had to start again.

The opener was outstanding in tallying her first Ashes ton and sixth in ODIs. She could not have done any more to keep the board ticking, getting to the mark at better than a run a ball. What a fantastic player she has been over the last three years. “It is the best innings she has played for England,” says Charlotte Edwards.

So, can Australia chase with more authority than they did on Tuesday? Can England hang on there with the ball and take advantage of bowling second on a used pitch? For that, stick around with Tanya Aldred to find out. Bye for now!
