Player of the match (Sophia Dunkley):" It was nice to get some runs on number 3 and Lamb did a good job to let me settle in and ya it was a great day for me just go out and play as I can and, try to play aggressive in the powerplay and I knew Heather was behind me so I was playing freely. I think the pace was definitely easy to play on this ground "
England Captain ( Heather Knight):" Yes I am really happy a brilliant performance of the day, we changed our order to try our strength the plan was to go and play the natural game. Lauren and Wong makes the debut and bowled really well."
South Africa Captain ( Sune Luus):" Ya we obviously knew it's a high-scoring ground. and we obviously expecting England to come hard as well and post 300 and we started a bit slow. These runs on this ground were gettable and but I think a lesson learned today. It was a good game of cricket."
Harsh: Back-to-back win for England here, win the match by massive 114 runs. The opening partnership of 127 sets the stage for England, lamb 67 and Beaumont 58 shaped the England inning. Dunkley coming at no. 3 played the inning of her life scoring 107 off 93 balls, the partnership between Dunkley and Sciver of 142 runs took the innings away from South African women. South African women were quite average on the field talking about bowling Trone bowled really well took two wickets and gave only 34 runs after bowling 7 overs. Ismail also bowled really well but it was the inning of Dunkley that took the game totally off from South African women.
Wang bowled really well took 3 crucial wickets and gave only 36 runs, looked quite impressive today bowled the hard length, and asked the South African women to hit it, right arm off-spinner dean made the game for England by taking quick wickets. The crucial wicket of the opener broke the opening partnership of 87 runs which broke the momentum for South African women, Kapp kept the hope alive but she also departs after playing the superb inning of 73, hitting it straight into the hands of Sophie Ecclestone.
Well, it was a great display of batting and bowling by the England Women which made the game for them.

c&b S Ecclestone
40.1 S Ecclestone to M Kapp
W OUT!!! Simple caught and bowled for Ecclestone to remove Kapp. This was tossed up in the middle and Kapp tries to loft this towards long-off, but the quicker pace on this gets a hit from the inside of her bat and it is an easy take for Ecclestone to get rid Kapp.
