South Africa Women ended their two-game losing streak with a win in the second T20I. The result meant the ongoing three-match T20 series is tied at 1-1.
In the second match, Ireland opted to bat first and were restricted to 106/7 in 20 overs. Nadine de Klerk and Tumi Sekhukhune grabbed two wickets each for SA-W while Gaby Lewis was the top run-getter for her team with 31 runs off 29 balls.
