South Africa incredibly lost 9 for 28 on its way to a defeat against the Windies in the Women's World T20 on Wednesday.

Chasing 108 for victory in Group A, South Africa appeared on track at 48 for 1 just over halfway through its innings.

However, it was stunningly bowled out for 76 as the Windies defended its 107 for 7 to claim its second win from as many games.

Stafanie Taylor – who led Windies to the 2016 title – was the hero, taking 4 for 12, as only Marizanne Kapp (26) and Lizelle Lee (24) were able to reach double figures for South Africa.

The day's other game saw Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh by 25 runs for its first victory of the tournament.
