South Africa Women 111 for 4 (Du Preez 37) beat Ireland Women 109 for 8 (Joyce 45, Ismail 2-20) by six wickets
South Africa's bowlers set up a clean sweep of the three-match Twenty20 international series in Solihull by restricting Ireland to 109 for 8. Their top order then chased down the target with seven balls to spare.
After winning the toss, South Africa struck early, reducing Ireland to 18 for 3 inside four overs. The home side made a little recovery and had got to 87 for 4 in the 15th over when they lost two wickets for the addition of no runs. That hurt their ability to push on at the death and they were limited by Shabnim Ismail, Ayabinga Khaka and Chloe Tryon, who took two wickets each for South Africa. Isobel Joyce was Ireland's top scorer with 45; no one else got past 15.
South Africa lost Trisha Chetty cheaply in the chase but benefitted from a 53-run stand for the second wicket between Andrie Steyn and Mignon du Preez. By the time they were dismissed for 35 and 37, the visitors were close to victory. Marizanne Kapp scored a brisk 19 to complete the 3-0 win.
