Sana Mir routs South Africa women for 63

Pakistan women 66 for 2 (Javeria 34, Ismail 1-18) beat South Africa women 63 (Tryon 21, Mir 4-11) by eight wickets

Offspinner claimed 4 for 11 in her six overs to dismiss South Africa women for 63 - . Mir took the new ball alongside 17-year-old medium-pacer Fatima Sana and removed four of South Africa's top five inside eight overs. There would be no way back for the hosts in Potchefstroom.

That they passed fifty was down to Mignon du Preez (18) and Chloe Tryon (21). Those two were the only South Africa batsmen to reach double figures in an innings that lasted all of 22.5 overs. Nashra Sandhu and Nida Dar backed up Mir by picking up two wickets each. Chasing a slim target, Pakistan women got home with eight wickets and 212 balls to spare. This was Pakistan women's biggest ODI victory in terms of balls remaining.

Mir had set the foundation for the win by taking the wickets of opener Laura Wolvaardt and captain Sune Luus in her first over. She missed the hat-trick, but triggered a terminal slide.

Marizanne Kapp, playing her 100th ODI, struck early for South Africa, as did Shabnim Ismail, but Javeria Khan and captain Bismah Maroof made light work of the chase with an unbroken 38-run stand - the highest in the match.
