Watch Sophia Dunkley's quickfire 23 in the Powerplay


Aryan Surana

Chasing a par score of 149, England got off to a not-so-promising start but Sophia Dunkley led the charge in the third over, hitting a six followed by a hat-trick of boundaries against Masabata Klaas before she was caught off the final ball of the over. Danielle Wyatt though kept playing her shots and kept the scoreboard moving at a fair clip. England concluded the PowerPlay at 51/2. Nat Sciver was run out for 47 off 41 in the 18th over but the match was only of academic interest by then.
