Australia Women's bowlers secured their team's first victory of the Women's World T20 by restricting South Africa Women to a paltry total in Sylhet. Ellyse Perry led the chase, remaining unbeaten on 41 when the winning runs were scored with eight balls to spare.

South Africa failed to get any partnerships going after winning the toss. The 31-run stand for the second wicket between Dane van Niekerk and Trisha Chetty was their highest. They slumped to 74 for 6, and then lost three more wickets for five runs, and were restricted to 115 for 9 in 20 overs. Chetty's 30 was the top score for South Africa, while Rene Farrell, Erin Osborne and Julie hunter took two wickets each for Australia.

Australia stumbled early in their chase, with their top three falling inside eight overs. They were in some trouble when Alex Blackwell was dismissed for 24, with the score 56 for 4, but Perry remained firm thereafter. She hit six fours in her 29-ball 41 and added an unbeaten 60 with Jess Cameron, who made 27, for the fourth wicket. They saw their team through to a six-wicket victory.
