Over 48: Klerk joins in the act. Goes 4-4-4 against Mohammed.

54 runs have come since Wolvaardt was dismissed and all of this carnage has been in just 22 balls!
Over 46: Tryon smashes her 3rd SIX to move to 38* (16) with 2 fours and 3 sixes. The wheels have started to come off for the West Indies.
Over 45: 250 up! Tryon means business today. She has smashed the first two balls from Henry for 4 & 6. 16 runs of the over!
After a very good first 4 balls, Matthews concedes 6 wides.
Over 44: Hayley Matthews is back and she is a terrific death bowler. It should be interesting if she can make further inroads.
Vice-captain Chloe Tryon clears the rope as South Africa muster 13 runs despite the loss of a wicket.
Over 43: OUT! Back-to-back wickets for the Windies at a crucial juncture. This is a big one of Wolvaardt who has been dismissed by Chinelle Henry.

Mignon du Preez 11 (16) - run out
Over 42: Wolvaardt goes big and clears the rope to score the first 6 of the innings for South Africa.
With Wolvaardt having completed her ton, she will now look to shift her gears further and target boundaries in every over.
Over 41: 200 up for South Africa with 59 balls to go in the innings. They will be targeting more a score in the range of 265-275 with Tryon & de Klerk to follow.
Over 40: 100 for Laura Wolvaardt! This is her 3rd ODI century and she equals Lizelle Lee for most centuries for South Africa in ODIs.

Over 39: Wolvaardt on 99!
Over 37: Wolvaardt is approaching her 3rd ODI century very quickly.
Over 36: OUT! Anisa Mohammed succeeds in breaking the stand as she cleans up Luus.
Sune Luus 56 (93) - b Mohammed
Over 33: Sune Luus brings up her 2nd fifty as captain. Her 1st fifty was in 2019 against Pakistan when the game ended in a TIE!
DRINKS: South Africa have regained control of this match since the last drinks break and will look to switch gears soon. Captain Sune Luus is approaching her fifty after she missed out closely in the last game. West Indies might look to bring back their strike bowler Anisa back into the attack in a bid to break this partnership.
The partnership has gone past 100 as the experienced duo of Wolvaardt and Luus have resurrected the innings.
Over 30: West Indies spinners have been taken for several boundaries as Stafanie is struggling and leaking runs. She has leaked 16 runs in her 2nd over.
Pacers: 18-0-73-2 (Eco: 4.1)
Spinners: 12-0-70-0 (Eco: 5.8)
Over 28: Stafanie Taylor brings herself into the attack for the first time since the 1st ODI. She did not bowl in the 2nd game as she was nursing an injury.
Over 26: South Africa haven't allowed Hayley Matthews to settle as they keep finding boundaries in her over.
Over 24: Laura Wolvaardt brings up her 22nd fifty in ODIs (64 inns) and equals Heather Knight (108 inns).
Over 23: 100 up for South Africa.
Over 22: 50 runs stand between Wolvaardt & Luus.
Over 21: Shakera Selman has finally been introduced into the attack. She is a new-ball bowler but has been given a new role today.
Over 20: While the two spinners are keeping it tight, Wolvaardt and Luus are trying to keep the run-rate above 4.
Over 16: Anisa Mohammed is introduced into the attack. She concedes only 3 off her first over.
DRINKS: The run-rate might start dipping as Matthews is operating and Anisa Mohammed will soon be introduced into the attack. South Africa will have to do well to maintain a healthy run-rate and not lose wickets either to two very good off-spinners who are known to strangle the opponents in the middle-overs.
Over 14: Chinelle Henry (6-0-21-0) continues with her 7th over. Luus has got going as she finds her 2nd boundary.
Over 12: 50 up for the Proteas!
Over 11: Connell continues with her 6th over in a bid to get another wicket. Luus is finally off the mark on her 17th delivery.
Over 10: West Indies continues to pile the pressure after Brits smashed Connell for 4 fours. Luus is yet to get off the mark after 13 balls.
South Africa has managed to score only 3 runs in their last 20 balls.
Captain Sune Luus walks out to the middle with a lot of pressure on her with this being a must-win game.
Over 7: OUT! Anneke Bosch has been dismissed for 5 by Shamilia Connell was has bagged her 2nd wicket.
Anneke Bosch 5 (9) - c Dottin b Connell
South Africa keeps finding the boundaries. They have hit 7 fours already.
Over 5: Connell gets her revenge as Tasmin Brits is out caught by the keeper. Anneke Bosch walks out to the middle.

Over 1: Laura Wolvaardt and Tazmin Brits walk out to the middle with Shamilia Connell taking the new ball.
