South Africa Women 161 for 5 (du Preez 69, Chetty 53) beat Ireland Women 115 for 8 (Luus 4-21, Khaka 4-23) by 46 runs
South Africa made it two handsome wins in a day against Ireland as they secured a 46-run success on the back of Mignon du Preez's 69 followed by four wickets apiece for Ayabonga Khaka and Sun Luus.
As in the first game of the day, South Africa made a far from ideal start as they lost Lizelle Lee to the second ball of the match, but the third-wicket stand of 103 between du Preez and Trisha Chetty, the latter who contributed 53 off 47 balls, ensured they would be out of reach.
Du Preez's innings, which included 12 fours and a six, was South Africa's third highest individual score in a T20 while the partnership with Chetty was their third best.
In reply, Ireland were three down inside the Powerplay against Khaka and the target became trying to bat out their 20 overs. They achieved that with Clare Shillington making a run-a-ball 31 before she was the first of the scalps for Luus' legspin. Khaka and Luus became the second and third South Africa bowlers to take four wickets in a T20 after Marizanne Kapp.
