ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier 2017 Day 11 – Top moments

Marizanne Kapp's tight opening over and Mithali Raj in full flow
South Africa Women celebrate a wicket

Sri Lanka v South Africa
Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail have made for a potent new-ball pair for South Africa. On Friday (February 17), the Sri Lanka batters at the P Sara Oval too were given a fiery reception. Kapp was especially on point, maintaining disciplined lines to the two left-handed openers.

In her second ball of the day, she rapped Nipuni Hansika on her pad, but her loud appeal was turned down, with the ball set to miss leg. There was little doubt in the next delivery, however, and Chamari Athapaththu had to walk back. Kapp nearly sent back new batter Chamari Polgampola on her first ball with a very good shout, but Polgampola lived to see another day.

It was a great exhibition of tight bowling, and showed the Sri Lankans there would be no inch given.

India v Bangladesh
India put up a solid performance to beat Bangladesh by nine wickets at the Nondescripts Cricket Club. The moment of the match came when India needed three more runs to win. Mithali Raj hit a six over long-off against Khadija Tul Kubra to end the proceedings with 99 balls to spare.

That shot, in her first match against Bangladesh, was reflective of Raj's tournament. She has been the most fluent batter for her team, and has often pushed the scoring rate after a slow start by the openers.

With her third half-century in as many innings, she became the fifth batter in the tournament to cross the 200-run mark. She now also has one half-century at least against all the ten opponents she has played against.

The best part of her unbeaten 73 was the way she found the boundaries between constant strike rotation. Her partner, Mona Meshram, said: “Mithali di’s experience helps when you bat with her. It releases the pressure when she plays her shots."
