Christchurch: South Africa, the fourth team to qualify for the semi-finals of the Women's World Cup 2000, got some much needed batting practice as they thrashed Ireland by nine wickets in a league match at the Hagley Oval on Saturday.South African captain Kim Price won the toss and sent Ireland in to bat. Ireland were restricted to 176 for nine with opener Anna Linehan and skipper Miriam Grealey doing the bulk of the scoring.While Linehan top scored on 40 runs from 69 balls with six fours, Miriam Grealey made 30 runs off 63 balls with three hits to the fence. Sunnette Viljeon and Hanri Strydom shared the bowling honours by taking three wickets apiece.South Africa were never challenged by the modest total and rode on the brilliant, unbeaten century from the blade of opener Linda Olivier to coast to 177 for one in just 36.2 overs. Man-of-the-match Linda, who remained unbeaten on 101 (117 balls, 10 fours), was associated in a first wicket partnership of 117 runs with Hanri Strydom (47 runs, 79 balls, seven fours).
