Shabnim Ismail402005.00143010
Ayabonga Khaka402917.25103030
4.4 to AJ Healy, caught at midwicket! 103kph inswinger, on leg, she tried to flick this in the air over midwicket but miscued off a thick inside edge, chipping this gently to midwicket and van Niekerk takes a simple catch. 34/1
Nonkululeko Mlaba301816.0093000
9.1 to JL Jonassen, caught at long on! 78kph, tossed up on middle, long on and long off back, she advances to try and launch over long on, she gets under it and it goes nowhere, Ismail cruises in off the rope and takes a comfortable catch. 69/3
Dane van Niekerk2020010.0032100
Nadine de Klerk401934.75101010
8.3 to BL Mooney, Clean bowled! 106kph, full and straight, Mooney advances and plays across the line trying to work through midwicket, it slides through the gate and crashes into the stumps!. 68/2
10.2 to A Gardner, pitched up in the channel... nicked off! Gardner goes quack, and de Klerk has another! Australia stumble further, and this is a big blow because Ashleigh Gardner could have done damage through the back nine (or ten). Bit of a limp drive, playing away from her body, and de Klerk knew there was bat on it. 71/4
16.1 to RL Haynes, timbeeeeeeerrrrrrr! De Klerk does it again for SA! Looked like a slower ball, scrambled seam as it came out and Haynes played all around it, looking to heave over the leg side. A useful partnership for Australia, but they've lost another wicket just as they'd be looking to push on. 103/5

Megan Schutt301725.66101100
3.6 to D van Niekerk, clean bowled by a cracking inswinger! 109kph, good length, pitching outside off, van Niekerk was caught on the crease, it zipped in late and almost gathered pace off the surface, sneaked through the gate as van Niekerk jammed the bat down and it crashed into middle!. 23/2
11.2 to S Luus, legcutter, in the slot but she can't get enough power on it... picks out long-off! Australia erupt in celebration, they are not going to blink here! Pressure catch and Mooney took it coolly coming in off the rope. 71/4
Jess Jonassen302819.3342000
12.1 to CL Tryon, holes out to long-off! Full toss from Jonassen but it does the job as Tryon can't get enough on a full-blooded honk down the ground and picks out the fielder. 79/5
Sophie Molineux201618.0071101
2.5 to L Lee, caught at wide long on by Gardner on the run! Tossed up bravely again, Lee went to slog sweep over deep midwicket, she just sliced it a fraction off the top edge, still got a fair bit of it, it carried all the way to wide long on, Gardner ran 20m to her right and took a good catch. 20/1
Delissa Kimmince301615.3361000
4.5 to M du Preez, caught at cover! Superb diving catch from Lanning! Another 93kph, slower ball, wider of off, she was deceived as she tried to drive, she chipped it in the air to cover, Lanning had to move to her left on the circle and dive forward to claim it. She did so with aplomb.. 24/3
