2017 ICC Women's World Cup in England & Wales SF 01 England Vs South Africa @ Bristol Tuesday July 18,2017

England can book a place in the Women’s World Cup final if they beat South Africa on Tuesday July 18,2017 as they go in search of a first major trophy in eight years.

The pair meet in the first semi-final at Bristol, a ground on which they played out a record-breaking encounter earlier in this tournament.
Both sides surpassed the 300 mark on that occasion, going on to make 678 runs in total, the highest cumulative score in women’s ODI history.

England players have scored 250+ Runs in this tournament. It is the most among all teams - Beaumont (372), Heather Knight (333), Sciver (315), Taylor (297)

South Africa's only semi-final appearance came  17 Years Ago. They lost to Australia by nine wickets then

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

England beat South Africa by 2 Wickets and enter the Final

England's women are through to the World Cup final on Sunday after a run-chase that veered from cakewalk to calamity and included all the emotions in between.

Sarah Taylor struck a vital half-century to help England book a place in the Women's World Cup final as they beat South Africa by two wickets at Bristol on Tuesday.

Taylor, back in an England shirt for this tournament after a year out of the game, hit 54 off 76 balls to give England control of the match before a mini collapse created a nail-biting finish.

Yet England, set 219 to win, held their nerve to complete their second highest successful run chase in World Cup history, built on the third-wicket partnership of 78 between Taylor and England captain Heather Knight

There were just three balls to go when No 10 Anya Shrubsole carted Shabnim Ismail through the covers to inch England over the line by two wickets and reduce several members of the South African team to tears.
