In match number 4 of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020, it is the South Africa side which has emerged victorious over England by 6 wickets.  Chasing a target of 124 runs, South Africa managed to reach there with 2 balls to spare.

South African skipper Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp starred for their team with the bat after picking up four wickets between themselves in the first innings to help South Africa register their first win over England in a T20 World Cup encounter.

For her all-round performance South African skipper Dane van Niekerk was adjudged the Player of the Match.

As far as the England team is concerned, Sophie Ecclestone’s 2 for 19 was not enough for them to defend their total and it seemed as if they have just a few runs under par while batting first.

Earlier, England failed to convert a decent start to a competitive total as they kept on losing wickets in regular intervals.

South Africa managed to breakthrough in the fourth over itself as Marizanne Kapp dismissed Amy Ellen Jones.

Ayabonga Khaka then dismissed the other opener, Danielle Wyatt, in the very next over and since then England always seemed to be on the back foot.

Post the wickets England never really got going although the other partners got a decent start, no one partnership helped them get some momentum going into the death overs.

Natalie Sciver was the biggest positive for England with the bat as she scored a 41 -ball- 50 but had to end up on the losing side on Sunday.

While England will look to bounce back from this setback, South Africa would be immensely happy with their performance and would look to continue their good show in the tournament.
