• SA women finish with loss

    South Africa women ended their World T20 tournament on a sorry note with a 10-run defeat to Sri Lanka women on Monday.

    The Proteas women did well to restrict Sri Lanka to 114-7 in their 20 overs as Chamari Atapatt top scored with 52.

    South Africa had a great start as they chased 115 for victory with Dane van Niekerk (24) and Trisha Chetty (26) sharing a 50-run opening stand.

    Things went pear shaped after they fell as captain Mignon du Preez was dismissed for a duck, while Marizanne Kapp could only muster 14 from 17 balls.

    They fell short, only managing 104-7.
