England, South Africa ready for the battle for final

England Women face a semi-final clash against South Africa at Bristol on Tuesday after finishing top of the eight-team World Cup group.

West Indies ended the tournament sixth on four points from their last two victories over Pakistan Women and Sri Lanka Women, with all three teams along with fifth placed New Zealand Women suffering elimination. "Heather Knight was excellent against West Indies with a really crucial knock and Alex Hartley with the ball".

The prime architects of this victory were skipper Heather Knight, who scored a fine 67, that enabled them to recover from 105/5 and finish with a total of 220 after being put in by Windies.

Earlier, England opener Lauren Winfield could only manage 11 before she went in the 10th over, caught at deep square leg to give 16-year-old left-arm seamer Qiana Joseph a first one-day worldwide wicket.

With the dry wicket aiding the spinners, the West Indies' batsmen were simply not scoring and Deandra Dottin was the next player to fall lbw, as skipper Knight added to her half-century with a vital scalp.

But once Beaumont scooped a full toss from Fletcher to the wicketkeeper in the 22 over, three wickets fell for 14 runs to leave England stumbling on 105 for five in the 26 over.
