South Africa skittle West Indies for 48 in Leicester

Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk produced inspired spells of bowling performances to help South Africa beat West Indies comprehensively by 10 wickets in the ICC Women's World Cup match at Leicester.

Chedean Nation, with 26, was the only West Indies batsman to make double figures as South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk became the first bowler, in either men's or women's global cricket, to take four wickets without conceding a run in her final figures.

4/0 Dane van Niekerk's figures - the first instance of a bowler taking four or more wickets without conceding any run across all internationals (men's and women's cricket included).

South African openers Laura Wolvaardt (19 not out) and Lizelle Lee (29 not out) were untroubled as they knocked off the required runs in 6.2 overs. The No. 1 ODI bolwer, Marizanne Kapp set the tone with three wickets in an over as Windies were reduced to 16 for 5 by the eighth over, vindicating South Africa's decision to bowl first. I'm really proud of the bowlers, especially my two opening bowlers - world class. They were bowled out for 41 against England Women in 2008.

"I looked at the dismissals and the way the ball moved‚ any batter in the world would probably struggle - "Shibby" nipping them back‚ "Kappi" swinging the ball miles‚" Van Niekerk said.
