South Africa survived to beat Pakistan by six runs in another thrilling finish at the Women’s Cricket World Cup.

After Laura Wolvaardt made 75 and Sune Luus 62 to take South Africa to 223-9, Pakistan looked beaten when needing 52 from six overs with four wickets left.

But Nida Dar and Diana Baig kept them in it, only for Dar to crucially be run out for 55 in the 49th over.

With 10 needed off the last, Shabnim Ismail brilliantly held Baig, and Pakistan were 217 all out.
