Result – Southern Vipers won by 7 wickets
After losing four (4) wickets in a space of just four (4) overs, South Africa’s D van Niekerk and S I R Dunkley Brown provided some stability to SS’s batting innings. But that was not enough and before they could do something destructive, Fi Morris broke their partnership by dismissing Niekerk in 14th over leaving SS’s scorecard at 81 for the loss of 5 wickets. With the excellent bowling by F.M.K. Morris, who took four wickets in her four overs and N. Farrant (3 wickets), SV were able to restrict SS at 141 runs.
Marizanne Kapp got both the openers of SV out in the 4th over of their batting innings and for sometime it looked like match could go either side. But, T Beaumont’s 62 off 45 balls and M du Perez’s 48 off 31 balls turned the match towards SV as they won the match comfortably with 3 overs still left.
