Moving day. In golf, the penultimate day of a four-day tournament is termed as such because it is when competitors try to set themselves up for the final push in the last round. On the third day of the four-day women’s Ashes Test match here at Canterbury it was Australia who, 106 runs ahead overnight, entered the field of play hoping to move far enough out of reach of England to orchestrate a first Test win on English soil since 2001.
Katherine Brunt, England’s passionate opening bowler, never set out play to play cricket.
Not seriously at least. ‘I never saw cricket as a long-term career,’ says Brunt.
