• Pakistan Women finish SA tour with single victory

    The Pakistan Women side have finally managed to win a game on their tour of South Africa by claiming victory in the final T20I on Wednesday via the Duckworth Lewis method.

    With nothing but pride left to play for, the visitors were hoping to avoid another series whitewash, following their 3-0 defeat in the recent ODIs.

    The Proteas Women opted to field first in Durban and again made an excellent start with the ball.

    Tumi Sekhukhune and Nondumiso Shangase enjoyed early success that left Pakistan at 66-5 just past the halfway mark of their innings.

    But, captain Javeria Khan smashed an unbeaten 56 from 50 to help Pakistan reach 127-6 in their allotted 20 overs.

    In reply, the Proteas struggled to get any sort of momentum going, losing early wickets that put them on the back foot.

    The hosts was stuck on 68-4 after 12.3 overs when rain interrupted play at Kingsmead and just behind on the required run rate in that stage.

    The umpires decided to call an end to proceedings after an hour’s delay, handing Pakistan victory by eight runs via DLS.

    The Proteas, though, clinched the series 2-1.
