NEW DELHI: In Cricket South Africa’s Under-19 Girls National Cricket Week’s T20 match between Mpumalanga and Easterns in Pretoria, Mpumalanga’s Shania-Lee Swart scored a blistering 160 off 86 balls and then proceeded to take 2/21 to help her team beat Easterns by 42 runs.
Not quite. While Swart managed 160, with nine extras Mpumalanga posted 169. The rest of her team-mates combined for a grand total of 0. Apart from Swart, who opened the innings, each one of her team-mates who came out to bat remarkably failed to open their accounts; three batters registered golden ducks, while No.10 Nicholate Phiri remained unbeaten on 0 as Mpumalanga got to 169 in their 20 overs.

The Easterns, in reply, managed only 127/6.
