User Rating: / 1

A flying half-century by Laura Wolvaardt followed by a disciplined bowling display helped the Momentum Proteas Women book their place in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup semi-finals with a comfortable 17-run win over Pakistan in Sydney on Sunday.

The opening batsman, who is batting lower down the order in this competition, blasted an unbeaten 53 off 36 balls (8 fours), to help South Africa post 136 for six after they won the toss and opted to bat.


South Africa pummel India to level the series

Beuran Hendricks set the standard on his return to the Standard Bank Proteas T20 side to spearhead a superb bowling performance that put them on the road to a famous nine-wicket victory with 19 balls to spare and a share of the T20 International series against India at Bangaluru on Sunday.

The victory was as one-sided as the final margin suggested and represents a tremendous achievement for the new leadership team of Interim Team Director Enoch Nkwe and Interim captain Quinton de Kock and the rest of the players and technical staff.


India ease past South Africa in 2nd T20 International

Virat Kohli and David Miller both took spectacular one-handed catches that were totally sensational in the second T20 International match between the South Africa and India at Mohali on Wednesday.

India won the match by seven wickets with an over to spare to give them a 1-0 lead in the series with just the final match of the series to be played at Bangaluru on Sunday after the opening match at Dharamsala last Sunday was washed out.


South Africa look to bounce back after wobbly tri-series start

The Momentum Proteas are ready to recover after a horrendous start to their Women’s T20 Tri-Series campaign against New Zealand and England in Somerset.

The South Africans suffered heavy defeats by 66 and 121 runs in their first ever double-header T20I fixtures, leaving a trail of broken records in their wake. Among them was the highest team total in women’s international T20s (216/1) set by the White Ferns, before it was promptly broken by the hosts in the second match of the day, when they blasted 250/3 at the end of their allotted overs, breaking the England men’s 230/8 record which they also, ironically set against South Africa in the 2016 men’s World T20.


Ghana finish World T20 Africa Qualifier A in style

Ghana finished off a wonderful week at the ICC World T20 Africa Qualifier A tournament on Saturday, as they defeated Nigeria by four wickets in the last match at the Tafawa Balewa Square Cricket Oval in Lagos.

The Ghanaians who had defeated the hosts in a last-over thriller days ago, won a lot more comfortably on Saturday, to finish as the only undefeated side in the competition. As a contest, the match was doomed after just one ball of the match, after Ghana had won the toss and elected to field.


Nigeria and Ghana make strong start in World T20 qualifier

Nigeria made a perfect start to the ICC World T20 Africa Qualifier A, as they cruised past Sierra Leone by 88 runs, at the Tafawa Balewa Square Cricket Oval in Lagos on Saturday.

The win was built on the back of skipper Chimezie Onwuzulike, who tucked into some friendly bowling on a hot morning, and helped himself to a breezy 54 off just 34 balls, smashing four sixes in the process.


Afghani Rashid Khan takes top spot in ICC T20 Rankings

Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has moved up to take top position among bowlers in the latest ICC T20I Player Rankings with some fine performances in a 2-0 series win over Zimbabwe.

Rashid, who last week became the youngest male cricketer to be top-ranked in the ICC rankings when he rose up to joint-first in ODIs, has moved up after taking five wickets in the two-match series in Sharjah to complete the double.
