    Bugger. But a great opener for the series.

      Second Ashes ODI starts at Grace Road in 20 mins. England win the toss and bat first. Wyatt in for Taylor after she picked up a knock.

                Schutt is being outrageously economical, mind.

                  Tammy Beaumont's having one of her good days.

                    15 overs, 69/1. England finding some joy against Jonassen and Wareham.

                      FFS. Can't say anything without jinxing this side.

                      On the plus side, Knight's strike rate was rather slow. But there isn't much batting depth after Sciver.

                        Perry back into the attack. Eek.

                          But she's not bowling that well. Beaumont is batting beautifully and closing on a 100. Hard to work out what to prioritise between this and Afghanistan's run chase

                            Beaumont is playing in a different match.

                                I daren't say stuff like that after the effect I've seemingly been having. But yeah, it's Schutt's miserly economy rates that have been the biggest obstacle so far, and there'll be more of those overs a bit later I should expect.

                                    Ah bugger, those two quick ones have put a big dent in the potential total.

                                      Kimmince has destroyed the tail.

                                        She gets 5 for 26 and Australia need 218 to win.

                                        Beaumont has given us a chance.

                                          Just hope that the Aussies are batting on the same strip the rest of the England team were batting on, and not the one Beaumont was given.

                                            Looks like three of them were, but we could do with a couple more quick ones.

                                                In worm terms there's hardly anything in it but obviously Kimmince did for the England tail. England are going to have to do something similar to win.

                                                Kimmince is another multi sporter btw - she's played AFL.

                                                  It's all going a bit Men's Ashes in the Nineties here, England putting Australia in and getting carted about the place by Healy and Lanning

                                                    Yeah, one of those where you don't know if it was a bad decision, or just that the Australian team is rather better.
