Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) congratulated the Protea women's team on their T20 International Series win over West Indies
after they won the decider in the three-match series by four runs at PPC
Newlands on Wednesday.
The South Africans were restricted in their innings to 119/3
in their 20 overs but then fought a superb rearguard action to limit their
visitors to 115/8.
“This series win is very special and captain Mignon du Preez
and all the players as well as coach Hilton Moreeng and his
management team deserves many congratulations,” commented CSA Chief Executive,
“This success is the perfect confidence boost the Momentum
women's team can enjoy the day before they depart to India for the ICC World
“They have shown superb growth over the past two years and their performances
in this and the preceding series against England are just reward for their hard
“Their fielding today was inspirational with several outstanding catches being
taken, most notably the left-handed one by Moseline Daniels which was every bit
as good as the right-handed catch Kagiso Rabada took at the Bidvest Wanderers
Stadium three days ago.
“Once again I must give credit to Momentum for their support which allowed our
women's team to become a truly professional one.”
