Pakistan out of Women's World Cup

Cuttack: South Africa's Marizanne Kapp sent Pakistan crashing out of the ICC Women's World Cup after the 23-year-old from Port Elizabeth struck her maiden ODI century at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack to secure her side a position in the Super Sixes section of the tournament.Marizanne Kapp (File Photo)

After a disappointing start, Kapp and Dane van Niekerk stabilized South Africa's innings, and later Kapp proceeded to clean-up the Pakistan batting line-up with her useful medium-pace bowling and thus ensuring South Africa usurped Pakistan to assume the 'B3' position in Group B.

Meanwhile in other Group B fixture in Cuttack, Australia tussled with old foes New Zealand in an exciting match in front of some 4,000 fans that saw White Ferns' captain Suzie Bates score a century, but her efforts were in vain as Australia's Meg Lanning made a stunning 112 and Jess Cameron's 82 secured the side a seven-wicket victory.

Lanning, Bates and Kapp's centuries now bring the total scored in the tournament thus far, not including the current India v Sri Lanka game, to eight.

In the Group A day-match at BKC in Mumbai, England showed its superior bowling display against West Indies when the side were dismissed for a meagre 101 in just 36.4 overs and England secured itself a six-wicket victory after Danielle Wyatt led from the front.
