MR-W won by 5 wickets
Player of the match: Sophie Molineux
 
That's it from this low scoring encounter, switch tabs to follow the World Cup action between Pakistan and Bangladesh which is a qualifier in this group now as South Africa lost today. This is the duo of Divyansh and Bidipto signing off. Goodbye!
Sophie Molineux, Player of the Match: I think our bowlers set it up beautifully, Ella with the ball, Shabnim Ismail too, we were good in the bowling department. I am blessed actually to have the group of players that we have. We knew that something was going to come our way for sure, now, with quick turnarounds, we need to focus on the next game and look for the win.
