    SA Women 1st ODI

    Chloe Tryon starred for the Proteas women in their two-wicket win over India in Bangalore on Monday.

    Tryon did her bit with the ball, taking 1-18 in six overs. Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk did the real damage, though, returning figures of 4-21 and 4-9, respectively. Their efforts saw India collapse to 114 all out within 39 overs.

    Things seemed to be going pear-shaped in the chase, as skipper Mignon du Preez was one of only two players in the top five to reach double-figures. At 31-5, 114 looked a long way off when Tryon walked in at No 7.

    Despite the situation, Tryon remained positive and got her side to the target in a hurry. She was eventually run out trying to level the scores for an 80-ball 50, but she had already done enough to secure a two-wicket win with 8.5 overs to spare.

    Springboks take on the Proteas

    National captain Jean de Villiers and vice-captain Victor Matfield have both been included in a star-studded Springbok T20 cricket team who will face off against the Proteas at the Wanderers Stadium for the Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup on Friday 5 December 2014.
