Marizanne Kapp’s three wickets in four balls against England is Craig Stirton’s Play of the Day.
The Proteas were in desperate need of someone who could stem the flow of runs from the England batters after Tammy Beaumont (148) and Sarah Taylor (147) had plundered the Proteas for a World Cup record 275 runs.
Following the wicket of Taylor for 147, England were still in position to finish strong with eight wickets in hand. Kapp had diferent ideas, however. The Proteas seamer took her first wicket at the start of the 47th over. For the second time in as many matches she had an opportunity to take a hat-trick after dismissing Beaumont with her second delivery of the over.
Once again, however, she was left disappointed after the hat-trick ball was hit for a boundary. She quickly put the missed opportunity behind her, striking with her fourth delivery as she had done against the Windies.
Her fantastic penultimate over allowed the Proteas to keep England relatively quiet at the death and keep the target below 400.
