The Proteas Women won their second World Cup Qualifying match in as many days, beating Scotland Women by six wickets.
Hilton Moreeng’s side now have one foot on the Super Six stage of the tournament – with the top four of that stage qualifying for the World Cup – after another dominant display in Sri Lanka.
Chloe Tryon’s inspired performance on Tuesday saw them beat Pakistan by 63 runs, and now Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea await them in the group stages.
Scotland chose to bat first and a half-century from Kari Anderson gave them some hope, but the bowlers were in excellent form yet again. Shabnim Ismail was lethal with the new ball to pick up figures of 3-30, while Ayabonga Khaka bowled no less than six maidens to finish with figures of 2-9 from her allotted overs. Skipper Dane van Niekerk then followed that up with 2-21 from her 10, as Scotland were bowled out for 142 on the last ball of the innings.
It was scratchy at first from the South Africans as Lizelle Lee (7) and Mignon du Preez (9) fell cheaply, but teenager Laura Woolvardt (35) and Trisha Chetty (35) kept things ticking along. Tryon then struck the hammer blow yet again, smashing 45 off 40 balls to allow her side to chase down the target inside 34 overs.
