So the West Indies claim a whitewash in the T20I series. The batting was patheti in all three matches, and South Africa will be kicking themselves after failing to chase down this meagre target. The bowling was tight, but the batsmen let the asking rate run away from them in the middle overs. That ends the tour on a high note for the visitors.

King to Kilowan, 1 run, OUT, run to 3rd man, there is one overthrow and they take their chances on a second but it's not going to happen

AS Taai run out (Campbelle/Dottin/King) 4 (8m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

King to Taai, 1 run, played to long on, now they need 4 off the last ball
King to Taai, 2 runs, clubbed out to deep mid wicket, Cooper sends in the throw but King is not standing near enough to catch the ball
King to Kilowan, 1 run, can only dig out a full lenght ball, 7 of 3
King to Smith, OUT, steps back and looks for the booming drive, but she'll have to go

AE Smith lbw b King 44 (51m 47b 3x4 1x6) SR: 93.61

King to Smith, FOUR runs, there's some luck - swung away to deep mid wicket, not a chance but a fumble and the ball is on the rope
