West Indies’ decision to bowl first was spot on as they reduced South Africa to 22 for four in 5.3 overs with Chinelle Henry (3/19) turning out to be the star with the ball.
But Mignon du Preez (38 not out off 31 balls) counter-attacked the West Indian bowlers to somewhat stabilise South Africa’s innings with a 39-run fifth wicket stand with Marizanne Kapp (5 not out) before the heavens opened up.
Shamilia Connell (1/18) was the other wicket-taker for West Indies.

The result means India face a must-win game against South Africa on Sunday to progress to the knockout stage. A no result will also work in India’s favour as they have a better net run rate than West Indies.
