Christchurch: South Africa caused the first upset of sorts when they recorded a five-wicket victory over England in a Women's World Cup 2000 match at the BIL oval on Saturday.England, making first use of the wicket, were bowled out for 143 in 47.5 overs. Except for opener Kathryn Leng, the rest of the England top order caved in meekly as wickets fell at regular intervals.Leng top scored on 46 runs off 72 balls with seven fours. Captain Clare Connor made 25 down the order as England looked to reach some respectability. Yolandi van der Merwe claimed three wickets conceding 25 runs in 10 overs, four of which were maidens. South African skipper Kim Price returned a figure of two for 20 from her 10 overs, two of which were maidens.South Africa rode on a 71-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Daleen Terblanche and Sunette Viljoen to overwhelm the English women. Viljoen remained unbeaten on 54 runs from 62 balls with five hits to the fence. Terblanche, who gave good support to Viljoen, made 41 runs off 117 balls with three fours.
