The Proteas were thumped by hosts England in their opening fixture. Against New Zealand, they put up a spirited performance but still fell short. The Sune Luus-led side did not seem to do much wrong but was outclassed by two better sides on the day. South Africa’s batting unit did fine as batters Laura Wolvaardt and Lara Goodall, were consistent as ever but their bowling turned out to be a weak link. With their final game, South Africa will be eager to finish the tournament on a winning note.
Sri Lanka’s fate in this tournament has not been much different too. The side was thrashed by the Kiwis in their opening encounter, followed by a defeat at the hands of a dominant England. The Lankans’ batting appears to be lacking quality as they barely managed to cross the 100-run mark in both their fixtures so far. Barring skipper Chamari Atapattu, the batters have struggled against quality bowling attacks on the international level. The team would not want to leave without opening their account and will be eager to end its campaign with a win.
