Scorecard

 

 

Katherine Brunt took two early wickets in Australia's second innings before the rain intervened to interrupt an intriguingly poised Test match at Canberra.

Australia Women will resume on 12-2 on the final morning, leading by 52 runs.

Before the rain came Heather Knight had continued her fine innings to end on 168 not out, having enjoyed a record ninth-wicket partnership of 100 with Sophie Ecclestone.

Brunt's two early wickets saw her reach 50 Test wickets, and become the first woman ever to pass 50 wickets in Test, ODI and IT20 cricket.
