South Africa and Pakistan qualify for next year's ICC Women's World Cup in Australia

South Africa and Pakistan secured their places at next year's ICC Women's World Cup in Australia after recording convincing victories in the semi-finals of the qualifier event in Stellenbosch on Friday.
Hosts South Africa defeated Ireland by seven wickets while Pakistan defeated the Netherlands by 94 runs. The two teams joined defending champions Australia, India, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and West Indies who all earned automatic qualification for the 2009 event following their top-six finish in 2005 when it was held in Pretoria, South Africa.
After winning the toss, Ireland got into all kinds of problems with the bat against South Africa, with only opener Cecilia Joyce, who carried her bat for her 43, putting up any kind of resistance in a total of 107. For South Africa, Sunette Loubser (2-12) and Alicia Smith (2-27) shared wickets.
Olivia Anderson, who only made her debut for South Africa during this event, captured her second player of the match award of the tournament for her 46 not out as South Africa reached their target with 22.2 overs to spare. A delighted South Africa captain Cri-Zelda Brits said: 'We're really relieved and very happy to have pulled it off.
'The team hasn't let me down since I've taken over the captaincy and we've stuck at it and come to the party at this event with the bowling.' In the other semi-finals, the Netherlands did well to restrict Pakistan to 162, with Lotte Egging winning the Player of the Match Award for her hat-trick.
In reply, the Netherlands never recovered after losing openers Violet Wattenberg and Helmien Rambaldo for ducks, and was bowled out for 68 that included a gutsy 41 by Annemarie Tanke. Sajida Shah once again did the damage with the ball taking 3-14 while Sana Mir also contributed with two wickets.
The 22-year-old Pakistan captain Urooj Mumtaz said: It's an absolutely awesome feeling. I can't tell you how amazing it feels. That was the task we came here to do and I think we pulled off a great win. We are very excited to be going to the World Cup' she said. 'Every single girl did their job on and off the field. In fielding, batting and bowling, everybody did their task ' it was an absolutely brilliant performance.' Pakistan now faces South Africa in Sunday's final at Stellenbosch University.
