A record first for Dane van Niekerk

A record first for Dane van Niekerk”

West Indies and Pakistan had days to forget as they were skittled for 48 and 74 respectively in the Women's World Cup on Sunday. Van Niekerk finished with impressive figures of 4 for 0, the best four-wicket haul in women's ODI cricket.

Pace bowler Shabnim Ismail started the rot for the ladies from the Caribbean by claiming the wickets of Hayley Matthews and star batter Stafanie Taylor for four runs each.

Marizanne Kapp (4-14) provided the early damage for the South Africans, dismissing Reniece Boyce, Kyshona Knight and Deandra Dottin in a single over to put West Indies under huge pressure at 16-5 from eight overs.

South Africa openers Laura Wolvaardt (19) and Lizelle Lee (29) were able to easily chase down the total in 6.1 overs to end the weekend third in the standings.

South Africa reached their target in only 38 balls, the fastest run chase to complete a 10-wicket win in any women's 50-over one-day worldwide. But Kapp's three-wicket burst ripped through the middle order, leaving Windies out of breath.

"Today has been our biggest test against a fantastic team in New Zealand, they always give us a tough game", said Perry.

Chedean Nation, with 26, was the only West Indies batsman to make double figures as South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk became the first bowler, in either men's or women's global cricket, to take four wickets without conceding a run in her final figures. I'm really proud of the bowlers, especially my two opening bowlers - world class. "I'd be lying if I said I bowled to a plan, all I was saying to myself was "don't bowl a full-toss" and I think they (West Indies) just missed the balls".

"They (West Indies) are a very talented team and they are very destructive, we know what they can do".

"The girls asked to top up on some of the areas they felt they fell short in", she explained. "We came here to win a World Cup and that's what we're going to work on doing".
