Match Prediction Women's T20 World Cup 2020 11th match - South Africa v Thailand
The 11th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 between South Africa and Thailand will be played at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.
It was Mignon du Preez who bailed South Africa out of trouble and hit the winning runs in the team's first match against England. Her 10 runs off the last two balls of the innings that saw South Africa win by 6 wickets were made all the more special with the fact that she was playing her 100th T20I.
Chasing a below-par total of 123, the Proteas did put up an 84-run stand between Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk. After both batters were dismissed in the space of 5 balls, du Preez used her experience to hand South Africa the win.
Earlier, Ayabonga Khaka picked up three wickets while Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk picked up two wickets each to restrict England to 123.
Thailand lost their first match of the tournament against West Indies by 7 wickets after showing some fight. However, it was one-way traffic against England as the team lost by 98 runs.
While Nannapat Koncharoenkai was Thailand's top scorer against Windies, Nattakan Chantam top scored against England. Nattaya Boochatham was their most impressive bowler in the last game.
