South Africa Women completed a series win against the Sri Lanka Women winning the first T20Is of the 3-match series at home. However, Sri Lanka might not be disappointed with the series result given the fight they put up in both the losses. The hosts lost three wickets and batted till the 16th over for chasing down the target of 91. Skipper Dane van Niekerk had a perfect double in the game scoring an unbeaten 71 and picking up three wickets.

The second T20I went down to the wire while the visiting side put on their best to defend the total of 105. Sune Luus, who couldn’t find a place in the T20I squad before Chloe Tryon’s injury, starred with the ball in this match. Luus registered figures of 5/14 in the 3.4 overs she bowled. Chasing a target of 106 runs, the Protea Women lost eight wickets and reached the target on the penultimate delivery of the game.
