Proteas Women triumphed West Indies by 8 whopping wickets
The Proteas Women have cruised to the victory of eight-wickets against West Indies Women and claimed a lead of 3-0, in the five-match One Day International (ODI) series.
In a cricket match, regardless of any formats, an over is equal to six balls which one bowler can ball and the next 6 balls are bowled by another bowler.
South Africa was playing a third match of ODI, with a 50-overs format. After winning the toss, Proteas Women elected to field first putting their opponents to bat. West Indies ten cricketers were all bowled out after they made 157 runs in 50-overs, which is equivalent to 300 balls.
This means South Africa needed just 158 more runs to win.
Under the leadership of Dane van Niekerk, South Africa broke the record by claiming their first win in the Caribbean when they successfully chased down 157 runs with 13.2 overs (80 balls) to spare, meaning they only played 36.4 overs.
Furthermore, SA have an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series with still two matches to play.
For the fourth ODI, the two teams are expected to play again on Thursday.
