England Women vs South Africa Women 3rd and final Match Preview

Centuries from Sarah Taylor and Tammy Beaumont helped England draw level with South Africa in the Women’s ODI series with one match still to play.

England bounced back from a chastening defeat in the first match of their ODI series against South Africa with a commanding 69-run victory over South Africa at Hove.

Sarah Taylor and Tammy Beaumont were the stars with the bat for the hosts, each hitting aggressive centuries and sharing a second-wicket partnership of 156 to set a platform for an imposing total of 331/6.

It was a welcome return to form for Beaumont who finished as the leading run-scorer at last year’s ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup but had failed to register a century in the format since hitting 148 against the same opposition last July. The diminutive right-hander put on 71 for the first wicket with Amy Jones (29) and then put her foot on the gas in combination with Taylor, who played some sublime shots on her way to a seventh ODI ton.

Marizanne Kapp, the South Africa all-rounder, has urged her side to fight back in the three-match series against England after their 69-run loss in the second one-day international on Tuesday left the series precariously placed at 1-1.

Kapp said the expectations were on England, as world champions, to win the series, and that South Africa will play as though they have nothing to lose in the final WODI, which is part of the ICC Women’s Championship, in Canterbury on Friday 15 June.

“We’re excited,” she said. “A bit disappointed with our previous performance, though. I don’t think we rocked up, but still there are a lot of positives to take out of that game and then obviously our first game.
