The Proteas produced a fighting performance with the ball to edge Pakistan women by 13 runs in a nail-biting second One-Day International (ODI) at Kingsmead on Saturday to earn an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.

Marizanne Kapp scored her ninth ODI half-century and took three wickets to help the Proteas beat Pakistan and jolt their Black Day ODI on a positive note in what promises to be a thrilling marque event for the side.

The third wicket partnership of Lara Goodall and Lee managed to add 37 until Lee was caught behind off the bowling of Sadia Iqbal.

Ayabonga Khaka made a welcome return as she was the standout bowler with figures of 4/43 while Kapp came through with the ball as she picked key three wickets.

Pakistan on the other hand will be aware they have plenty of work to do in the 50-over format after being surpassed by the Proteas outfit missing captain Dane van Niekerk and Chloe Tryon.
