The ICC Women’s World Cup’s 23rd match ended in a stalemate. Due to bad weather and constant rain, the match between South Africa and the West Indies at the Basin Reserve in Wellington had to be called off. Following that, each team was given one point. With one point, the South African team advanced to the semi-finals. They have advanced to the World Cup’s knockout stage for the second time. The Australian team had previously advanced to the semi-finals.
The West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first. Following that, the Caribbean team bowled brilliantly and sent four players to the pavilion for South Africa with a score of 22 runs. Mignon du Preez (38) and Marijane Cape (5), on the other hand, tried to keep the innings together and shared an unbroken 39-run fifth-wicket stand. However, due to inclement weather, the match could not be resumed and had to be cancelled.

Apart from that, the West Indies team has risen to third place with one point, while India has slipped to fourth place.
