She has struggled to get Connell away.Eng 33-0Connell continues and this time it’s Tammy Beaumont’s turn to advance down the wicket, as she swats the bowler back past her head for four. Eng 29-0Danni Wyatt is on it! She makes some room and drives on the up and down to the long-off boundary for another boundary. Ten from the Matthews over. Replays of that lbw shout show the ball was going well down leg – a wise decision not to review. Eng 24-0Beaumont is struck on the pads, Matthews asks the question. Not out. Will they go for a review? No. Hit outside the line, possibly? Post updateAlex HartleyEngland spinner and World Cup winnerEverybody knows Danni Wyatt wants to hit over extra cover in the powerplay.Eng 23-0Now that is some greeting for Matthews! Danni Wyatt dances down the wicket and gives it a good wallop through the off side for four. Post updateIt’s time for spin now as Hayley Matthews, with her cap on, turns her arm. I’m looking forward to this. Eng 19-0Beaumont 15, Wyatt 3Wyatt is off the mark with a couple through cover before a guided shot down to third man adds one more. . A solid start this for the hosts.
