Nat Sciver run out three shy of a fifty

Katherine Brunt became England’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is as England registered their seventh-highest successful chase in the format to clinch the series against South Africa, whose best performance so far didn’t prove to be good enough.

Nat Sciver compiled 47 in the winning cause, her highest score in more than a year, since England’s series against India last July, before being run out at the non-striker’s end. By then, England only needed eight runs off 12 balls and victory was only a matter of time.
