England Start Poorly Against South Africa


A top-order batting collapse by England and some very sensible top order batting by South Africa decided this match at new Road Worcester. My player of the Match was undoubtedly Lizelle Lee playing one of the most uncharacteristic innings of her career. Known a a T20 pinch hitter she took up a very different mantle here steadily ticking away the runs knowing she had the time to do so and this reduce the risk of going the same way England had earlier in the day. Her 92 off 128 balls showed a player not be categorised as a T20 specialist but one able to adjust and handle both shorter formats of the game.
