Heather Knight scored a superb unbeaten century to keep Australia at bay on day two of the Women's Ashes Test and keep England in the hunt in Canberra. The tourists found themselves in trouble early in their innings with the openers gone cheaply and by tea, they had slumped to a disastrous 120-6. With her team down in the doldrums, Knight hit an unbeaten 127 and shared an unbroken 66-run stand with Sophie Ecclestone (27) late in the day to keep England afloat. The visitors finished the day at 235-8, still trailing by 102.
