South Africa 280 for 3 (Logtenberg 153*, du Preez 81*) beat Netherlands 81 by 199 runs
South Africa's women completed a predictable 3-0 clean sweep against Netherlands as Johmari Logtenberg struck the highest score by a South African in one-day internationals and the sixth-best of all time. She shared a stand of 224 with Mignon du Preez and for the second time in the series Netherlands failed to reach three figures.
However, the home side had made their best start of the three matches with a spirited performance in the field. Mandy Kornet took two early wickets as South Africa wobbled on 56 for 3. Then Logtenberg took charge with her 160-ball innings. There was plenty of running involved with only 54 of her runs coming in boundaries. Logtenberg overtook the previous best for South Africa in ODIs - Daleen Terblanche's 114 from the second match of this series - , while du Preez offered fine support to take the total well out of sight.
The bowlers then produced a familiarly professional display, all six used chipping in with at least one wicket, but fittingly Logtenberg finished off the match with two scalps in her first four balls.
