We are finally close to the conclusion of the group stage in ICC Women's World T20. The semifinalists are already decided in both the group, but it is still be seen who tops the Group A which will be governed by the result of England - West Indies match. Following that, South Africa and Bangladesh will lock horns in the last league match of the tournament on 19th November at St Lucia. The two teams currently occupy the bottom two positions in the points table and a win here for the Proteas will take them to the second spot. For Bangladesh, even a win might not be sufficient to avoid a wooden spoon, but they'll still be playing for pride and to end the tournament of a high note.
Prior to their last match, the Proteas had a realistic chance to qualify for the knockout stage, but a heart-breaking loss to England sent them crashing out of the tournament. Batting first on a tricky surface, the Proteas started off cautiously but lost Laura Wolvaardt early.
Marizanne Kapp and Lizelle Lee added 20 runs for the second wicket, but with the loss of Lee, South Africa started losing the plot. Marizanne Kapp along with skipper Dane van Niekerk followed her in the over to follow. Although Mignon du Preez and Chloe Tyron tried to resurrect their innings with a 25-run partnership, never in the innings did they look dominating. The Proteas were eventually folded for 85.
In the second half of the match, they needed an inspirational effort from their bowlers in order to defend such a low total. However, English openers shattered South Africa's dream of qualification as they got England off to a flying start. Dan van Niekerk did manage to break through with a couple of wickets, but it was too little too late for the South Africa women.

The Asian champions certainly did not anticipate their such early exit from the competition. Bowling first, Bangladeshi women could not have started better as they picked up Mendis on the first ball of the innings. The lone fast bowler which Bangladesh played, Jahanara Alam, was impressive as she rocked the Islanders with three important wickets and kept it tight.
At the mid-way stage, the Sri Lankans were at 35 for three. While Bangladeshi spinners were brilliant in the first half of the innings, they could not maintain the pressure at the death as Siriwardene single-handedly took Sri Lanka to a competitive total of 97 with Sri Lanka adding 62 off the final ten overs.
Despite the late Sri Lankan surge, Bangladesh should have been pretty happy with their bowling effort. Their batsmen just needed to occupy the crease and put the bad balls away, but failed miserably. Such was their effort that they could only score three boundaries in their entire innings and were eventually folded for 72 as Sri Lankan women garnered a 25-run win.

Despite being a dead-rubber, this game will carry a significant importance as no team will like to finish at the bottom of their group. Bangladesh have struggled to put runs on the board in every game they've played and have consequently been winless. South Africa, on the other hand, have had a topsy-turvy tournament and have secured a win. They've been better than Bangladesh on the field and are better placed to emerge victorious in the upcoming fixture.
