England women beat South Africa by seven wickets.

Summary: Anya Shrubsole secured win for defending World Cup champions England in Cuttack.

Anya Shrubsole secured a win for defending champions England, defeating South Africa by seven wickets in the Super Sixes in the World Cup tournament, in Cuttack.

The promising player ran through South Africa's top order en route to career-best one-day figures of five for 17 as Mignon du Preez's side were all out for a paltry 77 in 29.3 overs.

Shrubsole secured the victory England needed to stay in the tournament and her five for 21 took her to the top of the wicket - taking charts with 13 for the tournament.

England fell to 26 for three in reply and lost three wickets, however, experiencing a turn around thanks to a 55-run partnership between Greenway and Brindle.

Shrubsole told "The batters backed us up brilliantly. Losing those few wickets was irrelevant; we just needed to knock those runs off quickly and the batters did that.

"Wickets do not count in net run-rate, so it was all about the overs. They went out there and executed the plan brilliantly.

"I had a pretty good day with the ball today; everything seems to have clicked really well for me at the moment, but I am just happy to contribute towards a really good team performance and win that we vitally needed."
