Aussies score over SA

Opener Rachael Haynes cracked a strokeful half-century to guide Australia to a three-wicket victory over South Africa in a Group B match of the ICC Women’s World Cup here on Sunday.

Haynes scored 83 runs off 108 balls, and her knock was studded with 10 boundaries. She anchored the Australian run chase after South  Africa, electing to bat first, posted 188 for nine.

Haynes batted sensibly and starred in two important partnerships, with Lisa Sthalekar and Jodie Fields for the fourth and fifth wickets respectively, to take Australia to 150 before falling to Shabnim Ismail in the 37th over.

Ismail came up with a four-wicket haul.
