|Women's Ashes Test, The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, (third day of four):|
|Australia 420-8 December: Perry 116, Haynes 87, Hille 58, Lanning 57, Munny 51|
|England 199-6: Jones 64, Sciver 62 *; Molineux 3-71|
|Australia runs with 221 runs|
The ruthless Australia is on the verge of retaining the female ash after the third day of the test in Tontton.
After announcing at 420-8 in the afternoon, they broke England's average order to leave them 199-6 at the end, moving on 221 runs.
Only Amy Jones (64) and Nat Skiver with 60 unprecedented have endured a tour fee, but England needed another 72 just to avoid follow-up.
With one day, England hopes to win the match.
Are the British hopes gone out?
Sunday is the 38th anniversary of Ashes's victory in Headingley in 1981, but the triumph of this position just one day will be even more remarkable than the heroic of Ian Botham and Bob Willis.
Leading 6-0 in this multi-format series, a draw will see Australia holding the ashes with the three Twenty20 matches still to be played.
England should reach 271 to avoid follow-up and then have to declare immediately, even with a deficit of 149.
Then it will be the case to make Australia bowling in their second innings as quickly as possible before proceeding to the final inning.
If that happens, the levels of excitement in Taunton on Sunday night will repeat what was seen in Lords in the men's World Cup final seven days ago.
England faces a dilemma
England started their first innings in an ominous position, 420 passed with just over five sessions and knew they would win only one win; they had to adhere well and, equally important, quickly.
After lunch, there was hope that Jones and Heather Knight were on board, placing 79 for the second caliber at a good pace, but the loss of England captain Sophie Moline for 28 was a failure that never recovered, losing four for 52 on both sides of the tea.
Georgia Elusis was missed by a direct strike by Nicole Bolton after dropping off the unnecessary single before Jones was caught in the middle of the race when the opener tried to hit Molinoy over the top.
Then the left transmitter had a third victim because Sara Taylor was five.
There was some stubborn resistance from Sciver, who led his first 50 in his fifth test in a decisive sixth partnership of 55 with her roommate Catherine Brunt, played by Ash Gardner for 15 years.
Still, after being forced to defend themselves after tea, they scored less than twice, the dynamics of the match changed.
Australia does not show any signs of disbursement
Australia has dominated this series since Leicester's first day-long international day and is not set to stop.
For a third consecutive morning they went out to stick to Taunton, even if it was only a matter of time before a declaration came.
They added 79 more take-offs with 22.4 take-overs, including half a century for Beth Mooney before her 51-year dismissal, and finally made Captain Meg Lingering send England.
Ellyse Perry pulled out Tammy Beaumont's opener for absolute beauty before lunch before Spinners took over, a wheel for 59 of 83 takeovers.
Molineus sent 29 of them and was the best, while Test Gardener's debutant entered Brunth's late door.
Australia has talked about playing a positive cricket in this tour and will think there is no reason why they can not take 14 English wickets on the last day to claim a test win.
"England should be only positive," they said
UK debutant Amy Jones on BBC Test Match Special: "It's time for rain before yesterday, but we wanted to make positive results and play our blows instead of just going out and shaking." There are many things that can happen tomorrow: The red ball is something quite different from this what we do, we are not used to buzzing time. "
Australia spinner Sophie Molinex of TMS: "It was nice to get a few loops, but I think we can still go one more step, we need 20 doors to win, it's good to see Ash [Gardner] take your first test door and hope that Thayla [Vlaeminck] maybe tomorrow. We hope to get the last 14 doors.
TMS Commentator Melinda Farrell: "What is England doing now? Just get on with the follow-up, make Australia and force them to decide again." The game goes past the point where they can challenge this result, but they have to be positive and then watch the T20 series as your own series – try to win this. "
