Brits stars as Proteas Women upset England

South Africa beat England by six runs at Newlands on Friday to set up a Women’s T20 World Cup final against Australia.

Chasing 165 to win, England fell short as Ayabonga Khaka took 4-29 and Shabnim Ismail claimed 3-27, including bowling a nerveless final over when England required 13 runs to win.

Earlier, Laura Wolvaardt (53) and Tazmin Brits (68) hit half-centuries as the Proteas produced their best batting performance of the tournament.

South Africa made 164-4 after winning the toss and batting on the same pitch which produced a high-scoring thriller in the first semi-final between Australia and India on Thursday.
