Proteas Women interim captain Laura Wolvaardt shares her reflection on the recently concluded T20I series against Pakistan in Karachi, where the hosts secured a clean sweep. 

On Monday evening, Wolvaaardt struck a superb half century but it wasn’t enough to edge the Proteas to victory as Pakistan clinched a six-run win.

“Very tough series overall, very frustrating to come pretty close in all three games and just be on the losing side all three times. I think Pakistan played really well overall. They played well to their conditions, they rotated strike better than us and they bowled a lot slower – it was harder to hit,” explained Wolvaardt. 

“In all three games, they (Pakistan) held their nerve at crucial times better than what we did. They stayed better in their chases, better than what we did today (Monday), we let it slip just a couple of overs before the depth.” 

The South Africans will shift focus to their three-match ODI series starting on Friday, 8 September 2023.
