Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Proteas women have been beaten in the fourth T20 by New Zealand in Wellington. The White Ferns take unassailable 3-1 lead in the five match series.

The New Zealand women produced a quality batting display, with Sophie Devine scoring 105 off just 65 balls. She helped New Zealand to a formidable total of 171 for 2.

The Proteas in response got nowhere close, all out for 102 after 17 overs with Lizelle Lee the only notable performer with 25.

The teams will now head to Dunedin where the last match of the T20 series will played. Both teams will hope to end on high ahead of the Women’s T20 cricket showpiece in Australia, which starts next week.
