Scorecard summary
South Africa Women 229/6(45 overs)
Australia Women 149/10(29.3 overs)

9:40pm Australia's third-biggest loss in ODI cricket, their first at home chasing since 2017 and only the second time they have lost on home soil while batting second since March 2009. Massive, massive result for South Africa this. It was all the fast bowlers' show for South Africa, starting from Kapp's new-ball burst. Newbie Hlubi also joined the party and Australia's top-order was back in the hut quite early. There was no coming back from there, despite the record partnership.

Marizanne Kapp, Player of the Match: "The win means a lot for the girls, hopefully we can keep on performing. I thought it was fine this morning, when i came out it was sore. The medical team did a fine job. At the start of the day, felt like we could cash on later on. But got tougher with the rain."

Alyssa Healy, Australia captain: "Not taking anything away from South Africa. We didn't adapt with the bat. We will review this like every game. Will look at what we could do better and what conditions are like on Saturday."

Laura Wolvaardt, South Africa captain: "Probably can't heap enough praise on Marizanne Kapp. Lucky to have a player with all that skill. Happy with our seamers. Hit our lengths early under lights. Series on the line, excited to get going."

The win helps South Africa claw back in the multi-format series, that is still led by Australia 6-4. One more ODI to go at the same venue on Saturday before the one-off Test. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Hope to have your company on the final game of the series. On behalf of Harshith, Gnasher, Srinidhi, this is Sudarshanan bidding you goodbye. Take care, ciao!

Tryon to Schutt, OUT

That is that! Or is it? Tryon traps Schutt, who opts to review. Full and on middle and leg, Tryon gets it to dip under her bat. Schutt goes for the sweep and is hit low on the front pad. Two reds and clipping the stumps. First ODI win for South Africa against Australia and the women in green celebrate!

Marx to Gardner, OUT

Marx strikes to break the record partnership. Gardner's feet going nowhere and contributing to her downfall. Full and outside off, she reaches out to it but makes no effort to get her front foot towards it. Ends up edging it and Jafta does not miss this time. That ends the highest ninth-wicket partnership in women's ODIs
