Been following this World Cup in NZ with some exciting finishes and some excellent ladies cricket.

The SA side is 2 for 2 with a game coming up against England on Monday.

Worth watching with most games being won or lost in the final few overs.


Mar 12, 2022, 03:40

Been watching women's cricket for a while now, they're really into it, good technique and bold in attitude. Like the way the Proteas go about their work, sharp and fearless in attitude they've yet to play their best game in the current tournament but that will come. With one Tannie in the team how can they go wrong:D

Mar 12, 2022, 09:15

I watched the highlights of the natch  vs Pakistan last night...nice team spirit they've got going, with a few world class players...maybe they can do what our men could never do...

Mar 12, 2022, 17:44

The SA side have a difficult road left in this WC.

England, WI, India, Aus. and NZ. are all going to require the very best from the SA ladies.

Hopefully they will be able to deliver and go all the way.

Impressed with the SA wicketkeeper both behind the stumps and with the bat.

Go Ladies Go.

Mar 13, 2022, 02:18

Think our girls are a bit inexperienced at this level but I expect they'll be competitive against all teams. There's the usual suspects to contend with(Oz, India and NZ) but I wouldn't write off our chances, matter of fact it wouldn't surprise me if they go all the way.

And yes I like the wickie as well and Shabnim Ismail with the ball is a star.

Mar 13, 2022, 16:28

Lets hope they go all the way.

Would be great for woman's cricket in RSA if they could make the final.

Fingers crossed.

Mar 14, 2022, 12:29

Proteas are one of two teams who are unbeaten.....building nicely:)

Mar 14, 2022, 13:20

Congrats to the team for beating England - now 3 gams played with three wins.   

Mar 14, 2022, 17:27

What a result.

Well done to all, you are a team with spirt, stay focused. 

First time in 22 years I believe that SA beat England in this format of the game.

What a time to pull off such a great win.

But that said it was exciting, great display of determination on the part of the SA players and a deserving result to boot.

A fantastic result for SA woman's cricket.

Stay focused ladies.

Mar 14, 2022, 23:11

As if our girls haven't had enough bad luck with star captain and player Dane Van Niekerk twisting her ankle in a freak accident a couple of weeks before the team was  to fly out causing her non selection. Star bowler Ismail had to abandon all hopes of bowling after injuring her toe in the match against England, she'll probably be rested for the next match against NZ. The time has now come for the team to step up after riding their luck against England especially with regards to batting after England fluffed several dropped chances. Tannie Lee needs to occupy the crease a bit longer, Brits is an excellent first drop and Luus looks like she has all the necessities to be world class. 

But kudus to a well drilled team who looked toast at 169-5......once again another fearless performance.

Mar 15, 2022, 20:47

Well the next two or three games will be a true test for the SA side.

Pity that Ismail is injured and hope that she will be available as she is crucial to the SA attack.

All the best ladies, go get them and make sure you get the runs to win.

Mar 16, 2022, 02:45

I'm predicting a Protea wins against NZ and India but a loss against Oz.

Here's the thing about Ismail.....she's the second fastest seam bowler in the tournament at 123km/h  which puts her on a par with Dwaine Pretorius who as well as having an IPL contract is in the Protea male squad. 

Go figure.

Mar 17, 2022, 16:58

What a win for the ladies.

Denny, once more you are correct with your prediction.

I also agree with you prediction regarding Australia.

The next game should see the team into the semi and then we require all players to deliver with bat, ball and in the field.

Tannie needs to pay attention as to what is going on when batting....

Her run out in this game was due to her lack of concentration and a poor of example of being focused when batting.

Some of her strokes were great but she needs to help the opening pair build a base for the team.

She has been a failure each time at the crease, simply not good enough and her failings have placed greater pressure on the rest of the team.

Ismail again showed her skill and determination with the ball and in the field even with her toe injury.

Once more Kapp has shown her class with ball and bat and her performance raises the game of her team mates.

All in all another excellent performance from the team and trust that all the bowlers will recover fully from their injuries.

Onward and upward Proteas.

Mar 17, 2022, 18:43

AJH mentioned 

England, WI, India, Aus. and NZ.

England and NZ got beaten and the Indian female team is not that hot.  If they say focused they can beat both India and the WI - but Australia is a different kettle of fish.    They will need a lot of luck to beat them. 

Mar 18, 2022, 02:18

Kapp is world class so is Laura, that said the team has scope, I'm looking for better batting from Tannie Lee and Brits and better bowling from the 4th and 5th bowlers who are the weakness in the team. Khaka bowls a good line but lacks consistency, Brits needs to back herself against tight pace attack in the same way she backs herself against spin......she's allowing far too many dot balls. Luus has a big role to play......good with the willow but too loose with the ball. So there, the team as I've said has plenty of room for improvement and I hope they get it together before facing a formidable Oz. I haven't given up on Tannie Lee she played some nice shots before her unfortunate runout........baby elephants are not built for speed :)

The team is building nicely and I'll be happy if they finish second on the ladder before going into the semi finals, meaning #1 vs #3 and #2 vs #4  with an Oz/Protea final.

Mar 18, 2022, 18:09

Laura skop gat!

Mar 19, 2022, 17:49

The only gat I observed was Tannies.

She has been a dismal failure thus far but hopefully she will deliver in the remaining important games.

Fingers crossed and watching.

Mar 21, 2022, 07:31

The team is comprised of some outstanding individuals.......enough to beat the formidable Ozzies? don't know but it will help if some of the underperformers put in with a few good scores. I get the feeling we're in for a great game. My go to players are Ismail, Laura, Marizanne and Luus but we need Chloe, Tannie Lee and Khaka to put their hands up.

Mar 21, 2022, 16:54

Looking forward to the game.

Trust that all players click and deliver for these last few games.

Go Ladies we are counting on you.

Mar 22, 2022, 16:55

Outgunned to put it bluntly.

After a promising start at bat and a score that was not out of reach of the Aussie team sadly.

The SA attack with the ball appeared to be lacking the sharpness that they displayed in earlier games.

Was this perhaps due to injuries or the Aussie batting.

Both I think played a big part in the final result.

But the SA team are still in the hunt and two more wins will see them into the semis with another game with the Aussies in the final.


Mar 22, 2022, 17:35

This loss can potentially be like the Springbok loss to NZ in the group stage of 2019RWC...places us better statistically. We still have 2 matches to qualify for the last 4...only need on victory...

Mar 22, 2022, 19:39

DbD you are correct but that said if it is Proteas against OZ in the final or semis I fear that we will not win.

But being runners up in the WC is no disgrace and they can all return to RSA with their heads held high.

They all did SA proud.

Mar 23, 2022, 00:15

"Outgunned"? Sure looks like that on the scoresheet but if one drills down into the game then perhaps there's another story to be told. Like for example Meg Lanning who went onto score half the Protea total(135), dropped when she was on 8,  as a matter of fact she was dropped twice and in total our girls dropped 4 catches. What makes it worse is that none of the other Ozzie girls went on to score big, none of them scored close to 50 runs. There were other contributing factors that brought about the Proteas demise like for example the replacement of regular 5th bowler Klaas who was injured also the Proteas didn't score enough runs but the most damning thing was the amount of dropped catches. The main culprit being Tannie Lee who never looked like catching two sitters. There cannot be any confidence on where to field her.

Mar 23, 2022, 17:12

Denny you are correct about the missed opportunities but give credit to the Aussie girls.

They are confidence, focus, skilled with a touch of brilliance in their squad.

They are without doubt the best squad at the WC.

SA had their chances but you cannot win top class games without setting a score that would allow your depleted bowling attack some room against a top batting side.

The injuries are unfortunate but the replacements tried their best.

Britz and her replacement in this game are perhaps more suited to Test cricket than these one day games and the next batter caught a great catch but also has not delivered thus far in this WC with the bat.

But on the positive side we are still in their with a slim chance.


Mar 24, 2022, 03:33

"But on the positive side we are still in their there with a slim great chance."

You betcha!!!

Mar 24, 2022, 16:29

Thanks for the correction.

Mar 24, 2022, 19:25

"South Africa have qualified for the World Cup semi-finals after rain washed out their match against West Indies in Wellington. Only 10.5 overs were possible after a delay of more than four hours that saw play get underway after 3pm local time and South Africa were in trouble at 61 for 4. But persistent rain meant no further play was possible."

Some luck, but WTH, nice to go into the last group match with the pressure off.

Mar 25, 2022, 16:40

Does  #1 play #3 and #2 play #4 in the semis?

Mar 27, 2022, 11:14

1v4 and 2v3...England will be tough .

Mar 27, 2022, 17:17

Thanks DbD.

Read  somewhere that the usual semi games rules had been altered.

Yes the England  semi will be a tough game.

But what a nail biter this game against India turned out to be.

The ladies persevered and thankfully we have one or two players who always rise to the challenge.

Onward and upward ladies.

Mar 29, 2022, 00:15

Go ladies you beat them once, you can do it again.


Mar 31, 2022, 06:30

England is posting a massive score.

Mar 31, 2022, 06:53

So we're chasing 293(/8)

Well done England, but GO PROTEAS!!!

Mar 31, 2022, 09:48


I can’t bring myself to watch the women’s game.

It’s fun for a laugh but that’s about it.

Before you judge me…can you name the women’s 100m WR holder?

Exactly, nobody really cares.

Mar 31, 2022, 10:09

"Before you judge me…can you name the women’s 100m WR holder?"

Yes, in an instant, without any help from Google. It's Florence Griffiths Joyner and it's 10.49 seconds. She set it more than 25 years ago and the record still stands, together with her 200m world record.

Who doesn't know that?

Mar 31, 2022, 11:00

I didn't, obviously.

But my interest in track is very low.

Perhaps, it was a bad example.

See what I did there? 

Wasn't so hard.

Mar 31, 2022, 16:48

OUTGUNNED no other word for it.

Dropped catches supported with poor bowling and a dismal batting performance in this semi final game.

Tannie has been a flop with fielding, batting and cricket in this WC.

The amount of dropped catches is unbelievable and disappointing.

By the way that world record will always be suspect.

Her nick name was Flo-Jo.........

Mar 31, 2022, 20:09

No wonder Rudehole remembers it so well...

Mar 31, 2022, 20:12

Plum if you have a relative or close friends daughter in the squad perhaps you would be watching and cheering them on just as we are.

But different strokes for different folks I guess.

A SA school friend of our daughter has a team member in the squad, thus the original interest. 

This is the first time we have watched the WWC and must say it is more enjoyable than the IPL for us.

Encouraging to see the bond between the players pity this is so recent though.

All those wasted years for WHAT?

Get my drift.

Apr 01, 2022, 09:18

Agreed AJ

For me there would have to be some factor outside of the skill levels on display in order to draw my interest.

I feel like they need to change the format, rules or some other aspect of the game to make it unique to the women’s version.

Currently, all they do is bring the boundary in a little.

The net result being that that it is just a worse version of the men’s game.

Apr 01, 2022, 23:46

Plum you are a real idiot.

A real loser.

Apr 02, 2022, 09:42

Cunty boy is only interested in watching men in tight shorts.

A loser straight up

Apr 14, 2022, 12:41

They need to change the rules, format or aspect of the game to capture my interest says the misogynist and chauvinist Dope-head. Does anyone care whether he watches women's cricket? I'm not sure he even knew there was such a thing as women's cricket, probably why he couldn't add comment, matter of fact he waited until the Protea's lost before jumping in with "battered" 

If one goes by his comments on men's cricket then it's a good thing that he shut his stupid and ignorant trap......who knows, with a bit of luck he won't make another shit list.

Laughing graphics

Apr 15, 2022, 15:42

Awe, did tante take her brave pills today?

Well, they do already bring the boundary ropes in when the ladies play…don’t they?

So that would suggest, to someone less woke than tante, that there are already amendments to the game. Of course, this particular one is aimed at seeing more sixes hit…IE making the game more exciting and thus selling more tickets.

Who knew the ICC where such sexists. Did you write them an angry letter or were you too occupied with attending whatever BLM riot was occurring at the time?

I wonder, aunty, did you know that there are many spots where the men’s and woman’s rules differ in order to accommodate the genders, making things fairer, more exciting and safer?

Also, when cricket came about, it was played by men. The parameters and rules where based around the physical ability of males. And now that woman are playing the game, they are forced to use those same rules etc.

Wouldn’t you say it’s sexist to expect them to play a game where everything was designed around a physical capability that they mostly cannot achieve?

But wait, you’re pretty woke, the wokist even, so i’m guessing you’re gonna tell use that woman are not as strong or as fast as men because they’ve been raised to believe they can’t be.

…i see where this all comes from though. You want to be with child, don’t you? And it’s only because you’ve been told you can’t get pregnant that you haven’t managed to get knocked up yet? I can just imagine your frustration at the evil WESTERN colonial mindset that has caused you this great strife?

Another mega ooooooopsie from our premier cuck.

Apr 17, 2022, 10:37

So what you really want to say cunty boy is that watching women play any sport doesn’t give as big a boner as watching men in tight shorts?

Cummon now be honest eeeehaaaw eeeehawww
