BRISTOL, ENGLAND, South Africa’s women’s cricket team faltered in the last over of their World Cup semi-final, losing to hosts England in the final over of Tuesday’s semi-final here.
In a nerve-racking finish, England reached 221 for eight with only two balls remaining to win by two wickets. South Africa had earlier scored 218 for six off their allotted 50 overs, with Mignon du Preez top-scoring with an undefeated 76.
This was the first time the South African women’s cricket team had reached the semi-finals of the global tournament.
England will play the winners of the second semi-final Thursday between India and Australia in the final at Lord’s on Sunday.
