Match abandoned South Africa Women 110 for 8 (Brits 36, Marsh 3-19) v England Women 15 for 0
England Women's bowlers, led by Laura Marsh, performed impressively to restrict South Africa Women to 110 for 8 before rain forced the second Twenty20 to be abandoned shortly after the chase began in Potchefstroom.
Only two South African batsmen made double-digit scores after they chose to bat. Dane van Niekerk scored 27 and Cri-zelda Brits a run-a-ball 36. van Niekerk and Brits were dismissed in the space of two runs off successive overs as South Africa were reduced to 84 for 4. They lost three more wickets quickly thereafter as the innings ended poorly. Marsh finished with 3 for 19 while Isa Guha took 2 for 24.
England's openers, Charlotte Edwards and Marsh, had scored 15 off 2.2 overs before the match was abandoned.
