Women's World Cup 2017: Dane van Niekerk Picks 4 For 0 as South Africa Bundle Out Windies For 48

South Africa Women then chased down the target easily. The tail was wiped out by skipper, Dane van Niekerk, whose leg-spin proved hard to get away.

With the performance, van Niekerk became the first bowler in the history of global cricket - taking both women's as well as men's versions of the sport into consideration - to collect four or more wickets in an innings without conceding a single run.

(Web Desk) - In a first ever, a South African women's cricket team all-rounder Dane Van Niekerk has made history on Sunday by taking four wickets and conceding no run.

However, Taylor said her side were focussing on pulling all facets of their game together and executing on game day.

Van Niekerk joined the party, claiming the wickets of Marissa Aguilleira (3), Shanel Daley (0) and leading run scorer, Chedean Nation (26 off 53) before Kapp returned for her fourth victim, Afy Fletcher (0). Hence, these facts are a testament to the fact how bowlers ruled the roost in England.

To make matters even worse for the West Indies, they dropped both South Africa openers off successive balls, the Proteas completing their chase in just 6.4 overs.

The cladding on the building has failed fire safety tests. "However, we really don't want to do this". They were not able to take everything they needed for spending up to a month away from their homes.

"They (West Indies) are a very talented team and they are very destructive, we know what they can do".

South Africa's second win in three matches - their match against New Zealand was washed out without a ball being bowled - kept them in contention for a last-four berth while Windies, the World T20 2016 champions, now face a tall order after slumping to their third straight loss.

On her record-breaking statistic, she commented sheepishly; "The ball was not coming off great, I can't tell you what happened there today".

"We don't want to underestimate anyone".

"We looked in pretty good nick so we could definitely look at the footage and see ... the good things that we did so we can come out tomorrow and replicate that and put on a good performance", she stressed.
