2022 ICC Women’s World Cup Semi-Final 2: South Africa Women v England Women

The South African women will face the English women in the second semi-final of the 2022 ICC Women’s World Cup. Hagley Oval in Christchurch will host this exciting contest.

South Africa Women finished the league phase in second place with 11 points. They have won five of their seven games overall and lost one, one of which was eliminated. They faced India in their last match and defeated them in a fierce contest.

After being invited to bowl first, the Proteas bowlers struggled a bit as the Indian team posted 274 on the board. The middle order of the South African batting formation intensified and contributed as they chased the aggregate on the very last ball to win the game by three wickets.

They will look to build on their winning streak in the round of 16 of the competition.

England Women, meanwhile, had the worst start to the World Cup possible. They lost their first three games but turned it around and won their next four to seal a place in the semi-finals.

They beat Bangladesh Women overall in their last league game to advance to the Round of 16.

Hitting first, the English side scored 234 in their 50 overs. They lost six wickets in the process. The bowlers then stepped up and backed their batters as they knocked down Bangladesh Women on 134 to win the game by 100 runs.

They will look to repeat their performance on Thursday.
