Hemp & Pakistan Fall Short Again Against South Africa
David Hemp and his Pakistan Womenís Cricket team have fallen in their second match of the One Day International (ODI) Series against South Africa by 13 runs.
Marizanne Kapp starred with the bat and ball to guide South Africa to a 2-0 ODI Series lead over Pakistan.
The world no.3 all-rounderís unbeaten 68 and 3/44 set the standard for the home side whose 252/7 was just too much for a resolute Pakistan side.
Pakistanís all-rounder Aliya Riaz posted the best score of her ODI career, the right-hander scored 81 off 95 balls with the help of seven fours and one six to revive the Pakistan innings. Aliya added 111 runs for the sixth-wicket with Nida Dar who scored 51 off 89 balls (two fours).
This was Nidaís second consecutive fifty; the two lifted Pakistan from 73 for five in the 18th over and gave them a real glimmer of hope in their alliance.
