South Africa 186 for 3 (du Preez 68*) beat West Indies 182 for 9 (Lavine 44, van Niekerk 3-25) by seven wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
South Africa women came back to level the series with a seven-wicket win over West Indies women in Cape Town.
Sunette Loubser's decision to field was vindicated by her bowling attack, which snapped a steady second-wicket stand at 62 and kept the pressure on West Indies thereafter. Wickets fell at 88, 89, 100, 104 (twice) and 128, after which Shanel Daley's unbeaten 38 from 51 balls got the score to 182. Dane van Niekerk had figures of 3 for 25, Loubser picked up 2 for 25, and Marcia Letsoalo (1 for 23) and Charlize van der Westhuizen (1 for 20) were extremely parsimonious.
South Africa paced their chase well, and from 44 for 2 were eased home by Cri-zelda Brits (31), Mignon du Preez (68 not out) and Alicia Smith (35 not out). du Preez and Smith added 58 to seal the win.
