The Proteas Women finally conquered England which comes as a major boost for their Women’s T20 World Cup, says Mignon du Preez.
‘It’s nice to finally beat them in an ICC tournament,’ said Du Preez.
‘This is the seventh one I’ve played in and we’ve never got close before. To put that behind us and move forward is really exciting. We’ve always known how strong we are and that within the team we have match-winners but we had a monkey on our back. I’ve played enough games in my career to be able to step up in crucial moments and I think to finally do that and contribute to the team is really special.
‘This will give us the boost we need to go one step further than the semi-finals and take a World Cup trophy home. We know we’re good enough, we just have to play well and enjoy it.
‘It’s the biggest Women’s T20 World Cup so far and it’s such an honour to be a part of it.’
