Megan Schutt1005515.50221110
43.4 to S Luus, Disaster for South Africa! Both the set batters depart in succession. Length ball from Schutt, Luus goes for the pull. Gets a top edge straight to deep backward square leg. Just what Australia would have liked.. 216/4
Ellyse Perry301806.00112021
Jess Jonassen1005215.20296000
45.5 to M du Preez, Ashleigh Gardner has pulled off a stunner! This is as good as it gets. Du Preez had muscles the heave over deep midwicket. But she timed her jump to perfection to pluck the light bulb. The cameras, much like everybody else, thought the ball had flown over the ropes. Take a bow, Ash!. 228/5
Ashleigh Gardner1015215.20264010
42.3 to L Wolvaardt, Wolvaardt's wait for a hundred this World Cup extends. She dances down to the tossed up ball to tonk it high but finds long-off to perfection. A wicket for Gardner now and is it the opening Australia need?. 209/3
Annabel Sutherland602614.33212020
27.1 to L Goodall, Soft, soft dismissal for Goodall. Was starting to get fidgety and results in her wicket. Gets a full ball, it is the offcutter. Goodall looks to go over mid-off but ends up mistiming it to King, who takes an easy catch there.. 118/2
Tahlia McGrath402907.25113010
Alana King713515.00224000
19.4 to L Lee, Kingy strikes! Lee on her way She chatted with Wolvaardt about going for the review but decided against it. Was pretty much plumb. Tossed up ball on a length around middle and leg, misses her flick. The opening stand broken at 88!. 88/1

Shabnim Ismail713324.71286000
2.1 to AJ Healy, edged and gone! Ismail with that deafening roar after the wicket. Full outside off, brings Healy forward, regulation edge and it is flying to Chetty who does well to grab to her right. Early wicket for South Africa. 14/1
32.4 to TM McGrath, Deserved wicket for Ismail. Kapp hugs her. That was a nice moment. Dug into the pitch, hard length, McGrath backs away to pull, splices it to mid-wicket, the ball lobs to the fielder who takes it easily. Finally the partnership is broken. 198/4
Marizanne Kapp803804.75264020

10.3 to RL Haynes, what a catch at deep mid-wicket A flying catch from Mignon du Preez. Half-tracker and Haynes smashes the pull, it is going to her left, du Preez with the glasses on moves to her left and is airborne when she takes it two-handed. Sensational catch. Haynes could've hit that anywhere but picks out the fielder. South Africa on top. 45/2
39.2 to A Gardner, South Africa hold on to a catch finally! Short ball outside off, Gardner looks to go over mid-off but gets it off the toe-end. Straight to Tumi Sekhukhune, who times her jump well.. 241/5
