South Africa dismantled West Indies for the next-most affordable overall in their historical past and sixth most affordable in the tournament’s en route a crushing 10-wicket acquire, their next in a few games, in 140 minutes. Much less than a 3rd of the overs in the video game were bowled as South Africa accomplished their chase of 50 in 6.2 overs. A 3rd successive decline left West Indies, runners-up of the 2013 edition, nearer to elimination.

Dane van Niekerk, the South Africa captain, became the only bowler in cricket historical past to consider four wickets in an worldwide without conceding a operate, but the problems was carried out earlier. Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail minimized West Indies to 5 for 16, with only one batsman – Chedean Country – acquiring into double digits.

South Africa experienced warned of a thing like this in the warm-up match from West Indies 10 times back. Then, South Africa plucked their opposition for 63 and neither Ismail nor Kapp was among the wicket-takers. Right here in Leicester, on a environmentally friendly-tinged best, they created up for that.

Ismail created two breakthroughs. She obtained the ball to nip back again into the ideal-hand batsmen at pace, trapped Hayley Matthews lbw and took out Stafanie Taylor’s off stump. She should really have experienced debutant Reniece Boyce caught at 3rd guy in her following over but the probability was place down. As a substitute, it was Kapp who obtained rid of the newcomer in an over of mayhem, which proficiently finished the contest.

In the eighth over, Boyce popped a top edge back again to Kapp off the initial ball, Kyshona Knight was struck on the front pad in line with middle stump off the next shipping, and Deandra Dottin’s leg stump went cartwheeling off the fifth. West Indies experienced 50 % their batsmen back again in the changeroom without even 20 operates on the board.

South Africa’s improve bowlers Ayabonga Khaka and Moseline Daniels retained the tension on and conceded only 14 operates in the nine overs they bowled, which bundled four maiden overs ahead of Dane van Niekerk introduced herself on for a initial flavor of spin. Melissa Aguilliera, who experienced battled 37 balls for just a few, experimented with to consider her on but missed the sweep and was bowled. Shanel Daley also mistimed her aggression and best-edged a swing off van Niekerk to short-fantastic leg ahead of Kapp was introduced back again on to finish things off.

She extra a fourth to her haul when she bowled Afy Fletcher to finish with profession-finest figures but van Niekerk place the icing on the efficiency. Country, who experienced managed to find the boundary five times in her innings, ran out of tolerance and chipped a catch to short midwicket ahead of young Qiana Joseph, just 16 a long time aged and in her initial video game, missed a sweep. Kapp and van Niekerk concluded with the two finest bowling figures by South African women of all ages in a Globe Cup video game.

It did not appear things could get any worse for West Indies but they did in the subject. In the 3rd over of the South African innings, they dropped both of those openers off successive balls. Lizelle Lee was place down by Taylor and Laura Wolvaardt by Anisa Mohammed and both of those created full use of their lifelines. South Africa raced household in 38 balls to wholly demoralise a West Indian side who have dropped all a few of their matches so significantly.
