The Proteas Women, in their previous game against England, cruised to the target of 124 runs with two deliveries to spare on the back of impressive batting performances from Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp. The duo smoked 46 and 38 respectively to steer their side to the triumph. Mignon du Preez‘s 18-run cameo also proved crucial for the South Africa Women, who registered their first victory of the tournament to climb up the top of Group B table.

Thailand Women, on the other hand, will be aiming to consolidate a win after showcasing two dismal performances in their two opening matches. In their previous match against England Women, they succumbed to a massive target of 176/2 and could post only 78 runs on the board. Apart from the lone effort from Nattakan Chantam, no other Thailand Women batsman could stick to the wicket for a prolonged period of time.
