TEEN pace sensation Holly Ferling shook up England's batting line-up - collecting her first Test wickets - including the scalp of English captain Charlotte Edwards.

England was batting strongly on day two of the women's Ashes Test at Wormsley, before Ferling came on in the 20th over, collecting 2-16 off her first four overs.

Australia made a surprise declaration just prior to lunch at 6-331 and England was 4-99 at tea off 33 overs.

Opener Heather Knight (39) and Tammy Beaumont (1) were set to resume after the break.

Sarah Taylor (33) looked dangerous for the English until she tried to pull a Ferling bouncer, in the 17-year-old's second over, and was caught at midwicket by Sarah Elliott.

Ferling then had Edwards (3) trapped LBW with the fourth ball of her fourth over (the 27th over), with the English skipper visibly unhappy with the decision.

Erin Osborne then had Lydia Greenway caught and bowled in the 31st over.

Ellyse Perry opened the bowling attack for Australia and appeared to get good movement early.

She snared the wicket of Arran Brindle (5) in the ninth over to have England 1-36.

Australia declared after 124 overs and 20 minutes before lunch, with Perry (31 not out off 24 balls ) - showing class well above her No. 8 batting position- alongside Erin Osborne (10 no).

England was 0-16 at lunch.

Elliott had earlier scored her maiden international century.

The 31-year-old came to the crease on day two on 95 not out and it took until the last ball of the eighth over this morning to make her century, which came off 269 balls in just under six hours.

She faced 24 balls this morning to move from 95 to 100.

Vice-captain Alex Blackwell resumed on 29 and arrived at the crease with an aggressive mindset, shooting to 54 off 169 balls before she was out LBW off the bowling of spinner Laura Marsh (2-74).

With Elliott out in the tenth over of the day, captain Jodie Fields joined Blackwell.

Fields came out firing, but was out bowled by Katherine Brunt (1-48) for six.

Elliott, playing in her first match for Australia since she helped deliver the Ashes back in 2011, came to the crease in the tenth over with the Southern Stars 1-17 and showed great discipline during her innings.
