Potchefstroom - The Proteas' women's opening duo, Shandré Fritz (37 off 22 balls) and Trisha Chetty (38* off 41 balls) shared a 63-run partnership to propel South Africa to a nine-wicket drubbing of the England Women's Academy at Senwes Park Stadium on Friday. The pair went at a merciless pace of 8.97 runs per over to kick start the hosts' three-match T20 series in a positive way. 

The visitors were restricted to 114/6 in their allotted 20 overs after winning the toss and choosing to bat first. The top and middle orders were not at their best as no one scored more than Tammy Beaummont's 18 runs  before Alice MacLeod (33 off 29 balls) and Amy Jones' (27 off 29 balls) unbeaten 58-run, seventh-wicket partnership. Marizanne Kapp and Dané van Niekerk were the day's best bowlers, taking 2/18 and 2/20 respectively.

After losing Fritz, who was caught behind by Jones off Danielle Wyatt (1/28) in the start of the eighth over, Chetty started up a new partnership with Susan Benade (24* off 41 balls). The twosome shared an unbeaten 54-run partnership to send South Africa cruising to victory.

The second T20 match of the series takes place on Saturday, 21 April at Senwes Park Stadium from 2pm. Entrance is free for spectators and braai facilities will be made available.
