Having got the target of 157 runs, the debutant finale team South Africa Women will be eyeing for a fairy tale ending.
Having come so far to face the experienced Finale team, the Proteas seem to struggle as the openers are still in search to find a comfortable way to go long.
Luckily, South Africa survived a DRS call by Australia –
LBW appeal by Australia as Wolvaardt fails to pull. It has been signalled out but Australia will review it. Wolvaardt looks to pull on this flat length ball, but it skids under the bat and hits the back leg. Ball tracking reveals that it is only clipping the leg stump. It was coming in sharply from the outside.
The Proteas made history when they became the first South African team (men’s or women’s) to reach a World Cup final in any format. They now have the opportunity to become the most famous team in the country. Meanwhile, Australia are habitual of playing these finals. This is their seventh final in eight tries, and Meg Lanning’s team is vying for their sixth T20 title.
