South Africa beat England by three wickets in the thirteenth match of ICC Womens World Cup 2022. They won by four balls with four balls to spare. This is the third time in the tournament that a team has beaten the defending champions. Amy Jones and Tammy Beaumont put on 107 runs for the hosts. But‚ despite this‚ the hosts could not get past the halfway mark. To rescue them‚ Marizanne Kapp picked up five wickets‚ her first in international cricket. South Africa's bowling is under question after two consecutive defeats. They managed to score just 207 runs against West Indies and Australia‚ and lost the series by just three runs against the former. In Tauranga‚ they will play England‚ a team that has not lost a match. The defending champions have not lost a game so far‚ and the first match against England is likely to prove that. In their previous match‚ England were defeated by South Africa by seven runs.

The defending champions‚ led by Sune Luus‚ have yet to lose a match in this tournament. In the last match against West Indies‚ they managed to score 226 but failed to reach their target. However‚ this time they will be looking to score a win‚ as they are the only team to have done so in the event of an England loss.
