BLOEMFONTEIN - Cricket SA (CSA) has congratulated the SA women’s cricket team on their 5-0 ODI Series win over Bangladesh.

SA completed the sweep when they won the final ODI by six wickets at the Mangaung Oval, in Bloemfontein, on Monday.

“Congratulations to the Momentum Proteas on a brilliant performance,” said CSA acting chief executive Thabang Moroe.

“A 5-0 series win is a magnificent effort and augurs extremely well for our forthcoming tour to England when we will play matches both against our hosts, the Women’s World Cup champions, as well as New Zealand.

“It has been good to see the entire squad get game time and our congratulations go to our captain, Dane van Niekerk, all her players and support staff and particularly the Acting Head Coach, Salieg Nackerdien, who had to step into this role at very short notice while our Head Coach, Hilton Moreeng, was on compassionate leave.”
