West Indies Women slump to third loss, all out for 48

Australia's Ellyse Perry who made her name as a fast bowler scored 71 as she reached the landmark of 2,000 one-day international runs

The West Indies women's team saw a new low on Sunday in Leicester when they registered the sixth lowest total ever in the ICC Women's World Cup.

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.

4/0 Dane van Niekerk's figures - the first instance of a bowler taking four or more wickets without conceding any run across all internationals (men's and women's cricket included).

In reply, South Africa's openers ensured that the chase was finished in a canter, chasing down the target in just 6.2 overs.

South Africa's second win in three matches - their match against New Zealand was washed out without a ball being bowled - kept them in contention for a last-four berth while Windies, the World T20 2016 champions, now face a tall order after slumping to their third straight loss. "The wicket had a little grass on it, but the openers bowled really well today". "I just said to the team to stick to the plan, bowlers, bowl their lines and lengths, we know that dot balls create wickets and yeah, it was a world class performance by them".




"I looked at the dismissals and the way the ball moved‚ any batter in the world would probably struggle - "Shibby" nipping them back‚ "Kappi" swinging the ball miles‚" Van Niekerk said.

What did Van Niekerk think? The most important thing is to stay on top of our game and we know that it's not going to be like this in every match.

"We don't want to underestimate anyone".

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. Overall, 48 by West Indies is the sixth-lowest in Women's World Cup. This will be the 11th ICC WWC.
