Thanks for joining us for the live coverage of the ICC Women's World Cup between South Africa and New Zealand. This was Badal Pareek alongside my co-commentators Saurabh Saket and Ovaise. Stay with us as we bring you updates from all across the globe. Until then stay tuned and stay safe.
Sune Luus | South Africa Skipper: "It was a roller-coaster of emotions, not the close game we wanted but we'll take those points. We started well in the powerplay and Devine batted brilliantly but we did fantastically well to restrict them. Kappie did a brilliant job. Australia is a competitive team and it is going to be a big challenge for us but there's not too much pressure on us and we'll focus on the small things."
Sophie Devine | New Zealand Skipper: "Kerr was outstanding, the way she came and played, it shifted the momentum in our direction. I was very disappointed when I got out, but we were able to catch up very quickly and despite of losing wickets we ended up getting a decent total on the board. We did that in their first spell but could not finish well. Someone from the top 4-5 should have been there till the end. 280 would have been a good score. We were probably too wide with our lines. It's interesting how this tournament has panned out, many teams have a chance to make it to the top four."
Time for the presentation ceremony
Marizanne Kapp (Player of the Match): "I think we need to stop this, it was a team effort. It wasn't our best performance but the perfect game is just around the corner. Our bowling unit looked a better in comparision, the batting needs to work a little down the order. They batted brilliantly, but you can't get too relaxed because the game can change quickly. Luckily we got on the winning side today as well. Just need a few more people to put up their hands, and then we'll be good."
Earlier in the day the hosts New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat first in their World Cup fixture against South Africa. They failed to get off to the perfect start as Ismail the South African speedster cleaned up Suzie Bates. In came Amelia Kerr who stitched an 81 run stand with skipper Sophie Devine. Kerr was dismissed just before she could complete her fifty, post that only two other batters in Green and Halliday had a significant contribution to the total. Devine kept going from one end and stitched valuable partnerships with both Green and Halliday. Sophie missed out on a well deserved century as she was cleaned up by Ismail with a beautifully executed yorker. They were 198-4 in 40 overs prior to the dismissal of Devine their skipper and once she was back in the pavilion the entire batting order crumbled under pressure. The South African bowlers were all over them and managed to dismiss them for just 228 runs in 47.5 overs. They lost 6 wickets for just 30 runs and fell well short of a good score on this track. Heading into the break South Africa was the team which was much happier. Lizelle Lee and Wolvaardt walked out to the middle to open the innings for South Africa in this chase. They got off to a decent start but then Lee gifted her wicket to New Zealand in the sixth over as she got run out. Wolvaardt and Brits then kept ticking the scoreboard and stitched a 48 run partnership before Writs was sent back to the pavilion by Amelia Kerr. Wolvaardt kept her focus and went about her business in some fashion. She brought up her half century and was looking untroubled out in the middle. Luss was playing the supporting role and the two helped South Africa get to 150 runs in 33 overs with 8 wickets in hand. Right when the chase was looking easy for South Africa, they started making a meal of it. Credit goes to the New Zealand spinner Amelia Kerr who brought her team back into the contest by picking up two wickets. They went from 161-2 to 170-5 in no time. Once both Wolvaardt and Luus were back in the hut, it slowly started to go away from the hands of South Africa. With 45 needed off 42, it was pretty much certain that the match would go down to the wire. It was all happening out there in the middle, missed stumpings, overthrows, balls flying all over the place. The chase kept getting interesting with every passing over. Kapp's cameo kept South Africa in the hunt as they needed 18 runs off 18 balls. She went on to win it for her team with two boundaries off the last 7 balls. South Africa went on to win it by 2 wickets.
49.3 F Mackay to A Khaka
1 South Africa has done it here. What a game it has been. Good length delivery outside off stump as the ball spins in towards the batter who pushes it towards mid-off for a quick single.
49.2 F Mackay to M Kapp
1 Scores level! Full length delivery on the stumps as the batter flicks it towards mid-wicket region for a single.
49.1 F Mackay to M Kapp
4 Four! Kapp has almost done it for her team here. She smokes it towards deep mid-wicket for a boundary. Full in length outside off stump as she goes down on one knee and smokes it towards the mid-wicket region.

48.6 S Devine to M Kapp
1 Full once again and this time Kapp drives it towards long-off for a single to keep strike for the final over with 6 runs needed.
48.5 S Devine to M Kapp
4 Four! Kapp you beauty. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. A perfect example of the phrase. Full length delivery on the off stump, Kapp cleats the front leg and smokes it over mid-off for a boundary.
48.4 S Devine to A Khaka
1 Short pitch delivery on the stumps, the batter goes for the pull ends up top edging it over the head of the bowler, neither of the fielder at mid-on or mid-off could make it.
48.3 S Devine to A Khaka
0 Wide yorker! Full and outside off as the batter fails to get bat on ball here. 12 runs needed of 9 deliveries.

48.2 S Devine to S Ismail
W Devine gets her wicket, South Africa are 8 down. Good length delivery on the stumps, a wild slog by Ismail who fails to get bat on ball. The ball goes on to rattle the stumps. Can't understand her need to slog here, she should have given the strike back to Kapp.
Ovaise: Physio is out on the ground, we'll have a concussion test as she got hit on the helmet. She looks fine to continue.
