Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Tammy Beaumont, 3.2 ov), 2-51 (Heather Knight, 12.4 ov), 3-77 (Nat Sciver-Brunt, 17.1 ov), 4-126 (Amy Jones, 25.4 ov), 5-242 (Danni Wyatt, 44.2 ov), 6-261 (Katherine Sciver-Brunt, 46.5 ov), 7-281 (Sophia Dunkley, 49.1 ov), 8-293 (Sophie Ecclestone, 49.6 ov)
17.1 to NR Sciver, top edges to midwicket where Kapp takes the catch and Ismail roars! Big breakthrough for South Africa! Ismail bangs it in short and Sciver goes for the pull but doesn't middle it, and Kapp goes back and to her right from midwicket to get both hands under it comfortably. 77/3
49.1 to SIR Dunkley, good length on the stumps, lifted without great timing and Lee runs around to her right to catch at mid-off. 281/7
49.6 to S Ecclestone, the slower ball gets Ecclestone. She backs away to go inside-out and misses, falls on top of the off-stump. England end on 293. 293/8
3.2 to TT Beaumont, edged and gone! Beaumont goes. She came down the pitch a bit to try and negate the outswing but guides it behind. This was on a good length and moving away, nice length and Beaumont has played a poor shot. South Africa have their first as Kapp roars. 10/1
25.4 to AE Jones, superb catch from Tryon, not the first time this World Cup! Kapp sees it land in Tryon's hands and turns to Jones to let out a big roar. The ball was angling in and Jones looked to tuck it to leg but got a leading edge off the outside edge as she closed the face of the bat. It was headed towards mid-on but would have landed well short, and Tryon ran back, facing the boundary, to dive and get both hands under it. 126/4
12.4 to HC Knight, loud shout for LBW and South Africa go up again. Given not out and this looks very close. If there's no bat then Knight is in trouble here. No bat and we move on. Gone!. That's a good review. Knight plants her front foot forward and looks to play around that, her bat comes in the way and she misses the inswinger, trapped right in front and surprisingly the umpire says no. There were two noises and maybe she was assuming it was bat. South Africa go for it and there's big celebrations from them once it is confirmed as three reds. 51/2
44.2 to DN Wyatt, after 5 dropped catches, Wyatt is caught at short third man. A couple of South Africans come up to congratulate her. Length ball outside off, sliced in the air and Lee running to her right catches and tumbles to the ground. Wyatt walks off to a standing ovation. 242/5
46.5 to KH Brunt, so slow and gets Brunt. The slower ball from the slide of the hand, into the pitch, Brunt steps out and swings across the line, misses and the ball falls on off in slow motion. 261/6

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Laura Wolvaardt, 1.2 ov), 2-8 (Lizelle Lee, 3.6 ov), 3-44 (Sune Luus, 11.5 ov), 4-67 (Lara Goodall, 18.3 ov), 5-96 (Marizanne Kapp, 25.3 ov), 6-101 (Chloe Tryon, 27.5 ov), 7-110 (Mignon du Preez, 29.6 ov), 8-148 (Shabnim Ismail, 35.3 ov), 9-152 (Masabata Klaas, 37.2 ov), 10-156 (Trisha Chetty, 37.6 ov)
1.2 to L Wolvaardt, sharp return catch, Wolvaardt is gone for a duck in the semi! Wolvaardt leaned into the length ball with some inswing to flick it half-heartedly and she ended up chipping it back, just below Shrubsole's knees, and she reacts quickly to get both hands to it nicely. 1/1
3.6 to L Lee, two in two for Shrubsole and England's catching! Full and swinging in, there's a midwicket in place, Lee flicks it away in the air and hands it straight to Sciver for an easy catch. 8/2
11.5 to S Luus, goes right through her! Cross breaks another stand, where have we seen that before? She bowls a cutter by running her fingers over it, on the perfect length on fifth stump to draw Luus forward with a gap between bat and pad, and the ball cuts in to sneak through and hit top of off. 44/3
18.3 to L Goodall, Dean comes back and strikes. Goodall shuffles across and exposes all her stumps, misses the paddle and the ball hits middle. England well on top now. 67/4
25.3 to M Kapp, Ecclestone makes the breakthrough. Tossed up and it drifts into middle and leg, Kapp whips across the line and misses, the ball turns away past the edge and hits the top of middle. Lovely delivery and she is all smiles. 96/5
27.5 to CL Tryon, Ecclestone has another. Good catch by mid-wicket. The bottom-hand takes over as Tryon comes down to flick, Sciver moves quickly to her left and snaffles that. Sharp catch. 101/6
29.6 to M du Preez, Ecclestone has her third. South Africa's chase falling apart now. du Preez shuffles across and exposes her stumps, misses the paddle and it's all over for Mignon. 110/7
35.3 to S Ismail, taken at mid-off this time as Ismail swings and manages only an edge. Came down the pitch, swung hard down the ground and the leading edge couldn't go far, and Dean had to come forward again but to get both hands under it this time. Ecclestone has her finger on the lips with a big smile while looking at Ismail. 148/8
37.2 to M Klaas, it's a maiden five-for for Ecclestone and it's come in a World Cups semi-final! The celebrations have begun for England. Klaas went against the spin for a big sweep, got a leading edge to point where Beaumont took one of the simplest catches. 152/9
37.6 to T Chetty, sixth wicket for Ecclestone, what a match she's had! Chetty comes down to swing, misses it completely after the ball turns, and Jones does the rest and England are in their sixth final. 156/10
