After a deficient batting performance in the 1st T20 game, South African Women would be invading the pitch with much prepared top order. In the last match against Pakistan Women, the Africans top order all together could only manage to add 20 runs in total, and now we hope them to bounce back strong against Pakistan Woman in the 2nd T20 encounter which is to play at City Oval – Durban, South Africa.
Opting to the ball first, Pakistan bowlers kept it unmanageable for African Women from the starting. Firstly, Sana Mir dismissed the opening pair with her pace, and later she directed the Skipper Sana Luus towards the pavilion.
Only, Chloe Tryon (43) and Mignon du Preez (23) were able to add some suitable run for African side and somehow helped their team to engrave a defendable total of 119 runs in 20 overs.
In the reply, Pakistans’ opening pair found it uneasy about placing their bat right and were sent off early. Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar scored 53 runs each and took the entire responsibility.
These two batsmen didn’t give any room for errors and effortlessly snatched the victory. Nida Dar was exceptionally well with the ball as well, and she bagged two wickets giving 30 runs in 4 overs.
