South Africa skittle West Indies for 48 in Leicester

Sports       by Dawood Rehman | Published

With the performance, van Niekerk became the first bowler in the history of worldwide cricket - taking both women's as well as men's versions of the sport into consideration - to collect four or more wickets in an innings without conceding a single run. Finally, in the Trans-Tasman rivalry, between Australia and New Zealand, another 14 fell.

Ekta Bisht led the charge for India with impressive figures of 5-18 off her 10 overs, with Deepti Sharma offering two wickets and Jhulan Goswami, Mansi Joshi and Harmanpreet Kaur picking up one each as India thrashed their rivals to go top of the standings.

"We know how important all games are going forward especially starting tomorrow", the 26-year-old said.

South African all-rounder Dane van Niekerk picked up four wickets without giving away any runs from 3.2 overs with her leg-spin against West Indies in the Women's World Cup.

In Derby, Pakistan bowled well to restrict India to 169-9 in their 50 overs, but their batsmen failed to contribute as they were bowled out for a disappointing total of 74.

Van Niekerk reserved special praise for her two opening bowlers, Marizanne Kapp - who is the number-one ranked bowler in ODI cricket - and Shabnim Ismail, who started the Windies slide with a devastating spell.

"It was quite surreal, if I could script it I would not have written it like that", said van Niekerk.

"I think their bowling was very good.But from our side, we just needed to execute our skills much better", said West Indies opener Hayley Matthews, out for four.

1997 The last time a total lower than West Indies' 48 was witnessed in Women's World Cup cricket.

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.

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