South Africa Women 260/6 (50.0 ov)
Ireland Women 193 (45.0 ov)
South Africa Women won by 67 runs

SA Women
Laura Wolvaardt 105
Trisha Chetty 95

Ciara Metcalfe 2/37

IRL Women
Isobel Joyce 57
Kim Garth 51

Suné Luus 5/32

It is interesting to learn that Isobel Joyce of Ireland has 3 brothers and a twin sister who all play(ed) the game. Ed Joyce is probably the better known of the siblings, but her twin sister, Cecelia Joyce, has also had a fair career for Ireland.
