Never, perhpaps, in cricket has a team won after scoring nine ducks. An under-19 South African team manged that this Monday. The only one who scored, scored enough. Mpumalanga's Shania-Lee Swart scored an unbeaten 160 in the team's 169.

Shania-Lee also picked up two wickets to single-handedly beat Easterns by 42 runs in a T20 game during the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Girls Under-19 Week.

Her 86-ball included 18 fours and 12 sixes. She put on an unbeaten 61-run stand for the 10th wicket, with her partner facing just three balls. None of her team-mates faced more than 10 deliveries.

"She is also a good hockey player and has been offered to play for University of Pretoria next year," her father Baltus told ESPNcricinfo.

"The South African women's coach Hilton Moreeng was there at this game, but he left when she was on 50. She does some athletics too - javelin and shot-put - so she has a lot of upper body strength. She was picked for the SA Under-19 side this week and they played one match together. She scored 68 and took three wickets."
