The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that South Africa have made a change to their Women's World Cup squad ahead of their final group game.

Dinesha Devnarain has returned home due to personal reasons and been replaced in the squad by Suné Luus, a 17-year-old  leg-spinner who has played two One-Day Internationals.

The Event Technical Committee makes the final decision regarding squad changes and comprises Geoff Allardice (ICC, chairman), Suru Nayak (host representative), Campbell Jamieson (IDI representative), Anjali Pendharkar (host representative), Alan Wilkins (independent nomination) and Melanie Jones (independent nomination).

South Africa lost their opening matches against New Zealand and Australia but a win in their final game tomorrow (5th February) against Pakistan would see them advance to the Super Six stage and guarantee three further matches.

Should they lose, they will play in the seventh/eighth place play-off on Thursday (7th February).
