1.4 edged, ricocheted off the keeper's gloves, and first slip grabs it in the end. Banged in short and outside off, extra pace and bounce from Ismail, she's one of the quickest bowlers around in women's cricket, Mathews has a crack at this too. The edge flies to the right of the keeper. She sticks her right glove out, the ball bobbles out, but van Niekerk at first slip shows great reflexes and catches it 9/1
    3.6 Popped to cover. Ismail takes her third and lets out a big roar. Pitched up on off, Dottin hangs back, instead of pressing forward, still goes for a loft and simply slices it to van Niekerk. Ismail has rocked WI's top order 22/3
    1.5 two in two for Ismail Good length and nips away outside off, Taylor stays leg-side of the ball, prods at it, and snicks it behind to the keeper. This is a simpler catch for Lee 9/2
    7.1 Daniels strikes first ball, the off bail is tipped off. Fuller than a good length and swings back in sharply to sneak through the weak defences of Campbelle. The pressure from SA is relentless 29/4
    18.1 tosses it outside off, Knight goes after it and holes out to long-on. Tryon hangs onto the catch this time 97/7
    14.6 Luus lobs it up on middle, not much turn, lures McLean into a big hit. He can't quite get underneath the length ends up toe-ending a catch to long-on. End of a counterattacking stand 74/5
    15.3 Cooper shimmies out, dares to slog it against the break again. This time she drags a simple catch to Luus at midwicket 74/6

    10.6 Caught at the sweeper boundary. Lee races down the track and carts it away in the air. Cooper leaps to her left and pulls off a top catch in the end. Dottin lets out a roar and celebrates 48/2
    4.1 length ball outside off, driven in the air to mid-off 17/1
    17.1 Kapp goes down the ground but gets more height than distance, and a good catch by Henry at long-off, moved across, held her composure and took a tumbling catch to her right 75/7
    11.4 Dottin has one stump to aim at and she nails it. What a play. They chance a single and van Niekerk has been caught well short. The crowd gets behind Dottin and WI. Tipped to point, Dottin swoops down on the ball and hits the stumps. Even Darren Sammy is impressed in the stands 50/3
    12.4 Connell now dives from square leg and catches this. This wasn't short enough for a pull, but Luus still goes for it and miscues it to square leg running in and diving 53/4
    14.4 Picks out long-on. McLean is mobbed by her team-mates. Down the track and lofted straight into the lap of McLean. Du Preez just did not get enough power or elevation to clear the woman in the deep 64/5
    16.5 timber! Taylor strikes again, Tryon comes down the track and swipes across, misses altogether. Is that the game? 75/6
    18.1 floated up and spins away a wee bit outside off, Ismail ventures down the track and scoops a drive to Matthews at cover. The fans are dancing and grooving in the stands. This has been some comeback from the defending champs 76/8
    18.3 Another run out. A rocket direct hit from short third man. Fletcher plucks out a piece of paper from he pocket and points to the change room. Not sure that's about. McLean brings out a jig, as does Darren Sammy in the stands 76/9
    not out
    18.4 another donkey drop, lands outside off, slugged away to midwicket. The fielder throws it to Taylor, who takes the bails off at the non-striker's end to catch Klaas short 76/10
