  • England captain Heather Knight says they welcome ‘added nerves’ ahead of their semi-final

The hosts, England, on Tuesday, booked their berth in the final of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 after they beat South Africa in the first Semi Final at Bristol.

It looked a below par total, and one that England were initially cruising towards, racking up 139-2 after 32 overs with Sarah Taylor (54) achieving her third score of 50-plus in the tournament.

While the South African captain Van Niekerk said that she is proud of her team, they knew that they were 30-runs short but still the way they played is very good.

Jenny Gunn: All-rounder Gunn narrowly missed out on the 2009 final, having silenced doubts which surfaced at a cruel time about the legality of her distinctive bowling action.

"The support from everyone back home has been so wonderful and I just want to thank everyone who has reached out to us and showed their support, especially our sponsor Momentum and Cricket South Africa".

But South Africa pulled things back in fine fashion and kept themselves in the game by chipping away with timely wickets.

That became two from three when Marsh was clean bowled by Ismail but Shrubsole coolly stroked her first ball for four to seal a pulsating England victory. "A final at Lord's at a home World Cup, sold out, there's nothing better than that for me".

Zeke Elliott involved in late-night 'incident' at Dallas-area bar
Sources revealed to ESPN on Monday, that Elliott was involved in a late night altercation at an uptown Dallas bar Sunday night. Officers were dispatched to the bar to investigate the altercation, but no arrests have been made nor suspects reported .

South Africa, on the other hand, had to deal with another heartbreak as they found themselves on the wrong side of a World Cup Knock out match once again.

It meant England needed to surpass the West Indies' record fourth innings score to win a Test of 418 for seven against Australia at St John's in 2003 if they were to achieve an improbable victory.

But in the end, the experienced Shrubsole hit a boundary from her first delivery to give her side victory.

South Africa, however managed to make inroads with skipper Dane van Niekerk effecting a brilliant run-out of Sarah and leg-spinner Sune Luus packing back the English skipper in quick succession. And once Lee got out cheaply against England on Tuesday, South Africa found runs hard to come by.
