O'Reilly to Devnarain, 6 runs

and South Africa Women pinches out a dramatic win here, required three, got six with a wild throw from the fielder at sweeper cover. Devnarain comes down the track and O'Reilly greeted her with a back of a length ball on off which was thumped over the cover region. The fielder at sweeper fumbles and throws it wild. Devnarain and Klaas had ran across for two by the time the sweeper fielder recovers and adding more misery a wild throw from her, ball races away to the fence.
