But how unlucky for Van Niekerk – two run-outs in her last two innings.8.5 oversWICKETVan Niekerk run out 1 (SA 30-4)Van Niekerk is already back in the pavilion before the replay is shown. She has succumbed to that most unfortunate of dismissals, run out at the non-striker’s end to the slightest of deflections by bowler Gordon. What can the South Africans muster from this?Post updateCharlotte EdwardsEx-England captain on BBC Test Match SpecialKapp looked to hit the ball straight, it went really high and Sophia Dunkley showed some incredible nerves to get under it and cling on – safe as houses. Kirstie Gordon celebrated with a big fist-pump, these girls are pumped for this.8.2 oversWICKETKapp c Dunkley b Gordon 9 (SA 29-3)There have been 37 dot balls and Kapp went for the big shot, but only succeeded in finding mid-off.Post updateCharlotte EdwardsEx-England captain on BBC Test Match SpecialWhat could be off-putting is that the umpires are in pink – if you look quickly, they might have thought umpire Kim Cotton at square leg was a fielder.8 oversSA 29-2South Africa had three run outs against West Indies and skipper Van Niekerk and Kapp have some confusion and end in mid-pitch but there is no run-out this time. Sciver with 1-2 from her first two overs. Post updateCharlotte EdwardsEx-England captain on BBC Test Match SpecialYou can’t believe she’s not reviewed it, when she’s wasted that many dot balls. It’s a really poor knock, considering the captain spoke at the top about playing attacking cricket, it lacked attacking intent to score – and Lee’s one of the most destructive players in the game.7.1 oversWICKETLee lbw b Sciver 12 (SA 27-2)A big wicket for England as the big-hitting Lee departs, trapped by a full-length delivery from the returning Sciver. It looked as if it might have been sliding down the leg-side but the South Africans decide against using their review.Video contentVideo caption: Sciver traps Lee lbwSciver traps Lee lbwPost updateCharlotte EdwardsEx-England captain on BBC Test Match SpecialLizelle Lee’s getting herself into a hole here. 12 off her first 25 balls, and six of those came from that six. The pressure’s building on her, and England have got to be ready.Teams are not adapting to the wicket, or the situation they’re in. They’re only one wicket down – you can’t get 120-plus trying to nudge the ball to mid-wicket, however much you back your bowlers.7 oversSA 27-1The final part of England’s slow left-arm trilogy as Gordon is given the chance to atone for that fielding blemish. The breeze is significant and is blowing across the ground. A leg-side wide but an otherwise impressive start from the 21-year-old Aberdeenshire-born bowler. When are South Africa going to press the accelerator?Post updateEbony Rainford-BrentEx-England batter on BBC Test Match SpecialThese [fielding lapses] could be critical because Lizelle Lee doesn’t have a release shot at the moment. You could see her head go up – we saw what happened when Alyssa Healy was dropped the other day and went on to score 50.6 oversSA 24-1Another misfield, it’s somehow gone through everything for Kirstie Gordon and allows Lee to come back for two against England’s second left-arm spinner, Sophie Ecclestone. Lee then unleashes a big sweep and even though the boundaries are back out to 65 yards it sails over Danni Wyatt for the first six of the match, the 38th of the tournament.Video contentVideo caption: Lee smashes first six of matchLee smashes first six of matchPost updateHere’s the first wicket, expertly snared at the stumps by Jones.Video contentVideo caption: Wolvaardt nicks Smith behindWolvaardt nicks Smith behind5 oversSA 15-1More misfortune in the field for Winfield, it’s a bad misfield (there are lots of fields in this sentence) and it evades her clutches on the cover boundary to give Kapp her first four.Post updateEbony Rainford-BrentEx-England batter on BBC Test Match SpecialAmy Jones had been on fire with the gloves – in the end Kapp is home, but she took it so quickly and it makes a big difference.4.3 oversNot outNo is the answer, eventually, Kapp’s foot just slides back and she continues on one against the scuttling slow left-arm of Smith.Posted at 20:1920:19Umpire reviewA very smart piece of work from wicketkeeper Jones here and have we got a stumping off a wide?Post updateHenry MoeranBBC Test Match SpecialThat shot tells you a lot about how it’s going for Lizelle Lee at the moment.
