England captain Heather Knight says they welcome ‘added nerves’ ahead of their semi-final

The main contributions came from Mignon du Preez (76*) and Laura Wolvaardt (66), whose half-centuries came as the side lost big hitters, Lizelle Lee (7), captain Dane van Niekerk (27) and Chloe Tryon (1). Women's cricket today is past those days.

"We wish we could have done it for them, but we can take heart in knowing that at least at the next World Cup, we have the capability and ability to go all the way to the final". The final will be played at Lords.

England Women's team has pulled off a sensational win in what could be the nail biting finish to seal their berth for the finals in the World Cup.

England were cruising through in the chase of 219 when Heather Knight and Sarah Taylor were in the middle, having added 78 runs for the third wicket.

England have won 26 out of the 34 meetings between the two sides.

"A year ago, I was nowhere, wasn't I?" she asked aloud after the match.

If you are a sports fan, the name should ring a bell. Extras: (w 4) 4; Total: (6 wickets; 50 overs) 218. But things are very different now. Now the two sides are evenly matched, uncannily so.

England's response got off to no better than a steady start and Lauren Winfield (20) and Tammy Beaumont (15) were removed within four overs to give South Africa hope. England were stronger, more experienced and ultimately calm in their execution. But South Africa intend to use their inexperience to their advantage.

England, set a mammoth 474 runs for victory, collapsed to 133 all out in their second innings 40 minutes before tea on the fourth day.

South Africa's only semi-final appearance came 17 years ago. "The inexperience; not really afraid of anything".

No England batsman made a fifty in an innings where former captain Alastair Cook's 42 was the top score.

"That was a little bit too tense", she said.

"If they play anywhere near to their potential they should win".

"We set out a goal and that was to win a World Cup", said van Niekerk.

Taylor added: "It's ideal: you want to play at Lord's, you want to play in front of a packed house and you want to play in a Lord's final". With three needed from the final over, Gunn hit a return catch to Shamim Ismail, who put down the chance.

"We know that final has been at Lord's for a long time now", a mighty pleased Knight said. South Africa have their administration to thank.

"The character and fight the team showed throughout the tournament".

But if there's one attack that's capable of stopping England's juggernaut, it's South Africa's.
