Australia defeated South Africa by 19 runs to win the Women’s T20 World Cup on Sunday at Newlands. Player of the Match Beth Mooney’s unbeaten half-century helped the reigning champions earn a much-desired three-peat.
Despite opener Laura Wolvaardt’s excellent batting effort, who struck 61 (48) throughout the chase, the hosts fell short of the 157-run goal.
