South Africa beat Scotland by 44 runs in a thrilling U19 Women’s T20 World Cup encounter in Benoni.
The hosts were on the ropes at 20-4 and again at 43-6, but a superb 53 from 49 balls by Kayla Reyneke helped her side bat out the full allocation and reach 112-7.
Scotland started steadily with the bat, laying a platform before attempting to accelerate in the second half of the chase.
However, the risk of hitting out saw wickets tumble, with Madison Landsman the star performer with the ball, taking a superb hat-trick in the 15th over to all but end Scottish hopes of reaching the target.
Landsman finished with figures of 4-12 from her four overs and became the first player to take a hat-trick at an U19 Women’s T20 World Cup.
