Tayla Vlaeminck has put her hand up for selection in the Australian women's team for next week's Ashes Test against England.
Vlaeminck produced a fiery spell late on day one and again early on day two of the three-day clash with the England Academy.
At lunch on day two, the 20-year-old had figures of 4-31.
"It's just so good to see her (Vlaeminck) let loose,'' Molineux told cricket.com.au.
"She's been injured and she's worked really hard to get back. It looks like she's got the confidence in her body and in her bowling.
"It's great that she has betters jumping around again."
After not being selected in the three one-day internationals, it appears Vlaeminck is in a battle with Delissa Kimmince and Nicola Carey for the third pace bowling option behind Ellyse Perry and Megan Schutt.
"All our intel has said the wicket (for the Test match in Taunton) will take turn, but pace has really worked for us in the one-day series as well," Australian coach Matthew Mott said before the three-day match against the English Academy.
"So we have to take that early if we get a crack at them as well, if there's any sort of life in the wicket we want to make sure we've got pace bowling options as well.
"Tayla certainly hurried a few up in the nets and asked a lot of questions, so it's key for her in this three-day game to find the right length for English conditions."
With a 6-0 points lead over England heading into the Test match, Australia only needs a draw in the Test match or one win in the three T20 matches following to retain the Ashes.
