Women's Ashes 2021/22

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: Katherine Brunt got the wicket of Annabel Sutherland with a perfect delivery that clipped the top of the batter’s off-stump after swing past her outside edge during Day Two of the Women’s Ashes Test.

Australia Women were dealt an early blow on the second day of the one-off Ashes Test match with Brunt dismissing Sutherland on the 19th delivery of the first session. The first ball of the 101st over of the Australia innings saw Brunt square the batter up with a spectacular delivery that went on to dismantle the top of her off-stump. The ball swung in slightly before straightening past the bat of Sutherland, who was in two minds and eventually tried to play straight, only for it to end in her dismissal.

Sutherland walked back after scoring eight in 35 balls, as Australia were reduced to 328-8. The hosts ended their innings on 337-9 declared, and have the advantage, with England Women ending on 235-8 before stumps.
