Sciver's first real contribution with the ball then came in Saturday's rout of West Indies, which secured a last-four clash with South Africa on Tuesday, as she returned remarkable figures of three for three from four overs.

However, 23 wickets at 16.17 in the Regional 4-Day Tournament has convinced the selectors Roach deserves another chance in three Tests, including the first day/night red-ball worldwide, in England.

Tammy Beaumont made a resolute 42 as she helped rebuild the England innings alongside Knight.

With the dry wicket aiding the spinners, the West Indies' batsmen were simply not scoring and Deandra Dottin was the next player to fall lbw, as skipper Knight added to her half-century with a vital scalp.

England have won six games in a row - including a 68-run victory over South Africa - following their opening defeat by India. Both sides surpassed the 300-mark on that occasion, making 678 runs in total, the highest cumulative score in women's one-day global history.

Opener Hayley Mathews (29 from 64 balls) and Chedean Nation (23 from 57) were the main contributor for West Indies.

Sciver's four-over spell ended with three wickets for just three runs, and one maiden.

Anisa Mohammed was lbw to Anya Shrubsole for 14, while Kyshona Knight finished not out on 12 as West Indies ended 128 for nine.

On the other hand, back from a 59-run loss to Australia, the South African skipper believed taht the pressure is on the hosts to proceed to the final.

"Kemar's return is welcomed as he was one of the best fast bowlers in Tests in the recent past for us", chief selector Courtney Browne said.

"That character is really nice to see, in this tournament we have found our way out of sticky situations".

"We're excited, we know any team that is in the semi-final is going to be tough to beat, so we're going to have to bring our very best", Dane said.

Afterwards, she was at least able to see the amusing side, adding with a smile: "I was happy to trust my partner (Hayley Matthews), but when I went upstairs and had a look I wanted to kill her".
