When and where:
The hosts registered a thumping win by 121 runs over South Africa women in the first game with the maiden T20I century from Tammy Beaumont. With the smashing 116 runs in 52 deliveries from Tammy Beaumont and handy innings from Katherine Brunt (42 of 16) and D Wyatt (56 of 36), England Women posted a nearly impossible target of 251 runs in 120 balls for South Africa women who faced 66-runs defeat from New Zealand Women shortly before the match.
In response, South Africa ended up with 129-6 in the allotted over and faced another defeat. They have now lost two games and desperately need a win to keep themselves alive in the tri-series. The third match between England Women and South Africa women will be played tomorrow (June 23) at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton starting at 05:30 PM IST/01:00 PM Local.
The hosts have a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday. They will take on South Africa Women first in the afternoon and will later host New Zealand women in the evening. Both England and New Zealand Women have won their first encounters with South Africa and have 2 points each.
This is a must-win game for South Africa women as a loss here will end up their hopes of playing the final. So, let’s see whether they can turn the tables or it will be the end of their part in the tri-series.
This is the same venue where the previous two games were played. The Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton is a batting paradise and England and New Zealand have proved it with their batting prowess. Both the teams scored 200+ runs on the surface. Seeing the first two games, the pitch also provides a little bit assistance to bowlers in the second innings. The flip of the coin will play a crucial role today.
