Arundhati Reddy401814.50132000
18.3 to S Jafta, caught behind! Jafta's enterprising innings ends. Full and just outside off, clears the front leg and looks to drill through cover. Thick edge and taken by the stand-in keeper. Jafta possibly the only batter today who looked in full control, nice knock this. 98/7
Rajeshwari Gayakwad41932.25191000
1.3 to A Bosch, through her! Bosch has made the decision to go across the line and has ended up swishing all over this. It's a length ball turning marginally away from middle and leg. She's on the back foot, looking to whip through midwicket. Missed it by some distance and that clips the top of middle. 6/1
5.4 to L Lee, fantastic arm ball! Lee had no idea what was happening there. It's just short of a good length, easy enough to play on the back foot if it grips. But this one doesn't. It's pushed through quicker, it's pushed through with the aim of hitting the stumps. And it is through Lee's attempted whip off the back foot, way before the bat can come down. 15/2
14.3 to N de Klerk, another one falls going across the line! You simply do not do that against Gayakwad tonight. Nails another arm ball, short of a length, skidding low and underneath the attempted pull. 63/5
Radha Yadav402416.0071000
6.3 to L Wolvaardt, a sensational diving catch by Deepti at extra cover! Length ball turning away outside off. Grips as Wolvaardt jabs at it with hard hands on the front foot. Lobs tantalizingly to Deepti's left extra cover, and she scrambles quickly with her first movement, going forward and to her left before diving full stretch and holding on inches from the ground. Talk about redemption!. 16/3
Deepti Sharma402215.5061000
15.4 to S Luus, crashed into middle stump. Short of a length, turning in and staying a touch low as she shapes for the pull and misses this. South Africa lose their captain as this innings sinks further. 71/6
Simran Bahadur302919.6654020
10.6 to F Tunnicliffe, cuts it back to hit the top of leg stump! Faye's looked out of shape on many occasions tonight, and this time she's missed a length ball. Front foot planted in the leg side as she reaches out for this loopy delivery pitching at a length on middle stump. It cuts back in to beat the inside of her slog. 40/4

8.3 to Shafali Verma, they get her at last! A sharp take from Shabnim Ismail at long-on. It's a length ball that skids on. No turn into her, so she ends up fetching it. Shabnim keeps her eyes as she sprints inwards and to her right, holds on as she goes to floor. Shafali walks off to standing ovation. Stunning innings. 96/1
