South Africa prevail in three-wicket thriller

PAKW 206/8 (50.0 Ovs)
RSAW 207/7 (49.0 Ovs)

Brief scores: Pakistan 206/8 in 50 overs (Nahida Khan 79, Asmavia Iqbal 27; Moseline Daniels 2-21) lost to South Africa 207/7 in 49 overs (Lizelle Lee 60, Laura Wolvaardt 52; Sadia Yousuf 2-30) by 3 wickets.

Luus: I really can’t remember how things went. We were talking about taking the singles and not taking it to the end. Pakistan played very well to restrict us to where we were. Just that the maturity of the players came in at the end.
A nerve-wracker. And Ismail does her bit after quite a few plays and misses to ensure that her side sneaks home. Just about. But how did it ever get this close? South Africa were cruising at one stage with Wolvaardt and Lee smashing the ball all over with an opening stand of 113. But it soon gave way to a run-out procession and with Pakistan staying calm in their fielding efforts, took it all the way to the end. But a 16-run 49th over sealed the deal. A listen in to Luus as we leave you..
