Bowlers, Openers Seal Emphatic Win for SA Emerging Women

by | May 25, 2021

Micaela Andrews, Masabata Klaas and Jade de Figueredo spearheaded a fine bowling display that set the South Africa Emerging Women up for a perfect 10-wicket win over Zimbabwe Emerging in match four of their five-match One-Day series in Bulawayo on Monday, 24 May 2021.

The trio shared seven wickets between them, bowling out the hosts for just 137 before captain Andrie Steyn and Tazmin Brits recorded half centuries to power the tourists, who won the series by triumphing in the previous outing on Saturday, to a one-sided win.

They now lead the series 4-0 with the final game to come on Wednesday.

Dinesha Devnarain’s charges were ruthless in their latest outing, needing only 39.4 overs to dismiss their Zimbabwean hosts at the Queens Sports Club.

The locals won the toss and batted at the start, but they struggled to settle as Andrews (3/17) and De Figueredo (2/37) cut through the top order.

Preaus Marange (40) then offered some resistance, but she was alone in her fight, with Klaas (2/23) then coming back to mop up the lower order and leave the visitors a paltry 138 to get.

The South Africans needed only 24.4 overs to get the runs.

Brits was the aggressor during the response, blasting 67* off 61 balls (8 fours, 1 six) as captain Steyn dropped anchor at the other end with 61* off 87 balls (4 fours, 1 six).

Their reply left the rest of the line-up spectating in what was the biggest victory of the tour for the away side.
