South Africa pulled off a dramatic three-wicket victory in their opening Women's World Cup match against Pakistan at Grace Road.

Pakistan posted their highest World Cup score with opener Nahida Khan 79 helping them to 206 for 8.

The Proteas reached 113 for no loss, before losing five wickets for 34 runs in a frenzied spell which included three run-outs.

It was left to number nine Shabnim Ismail to strike consecutive boundaries in the 49th over to secure a win.

Pakistan, who have not won a World Cup match since 2009, face England tomorrow, again, while South Africa play New Zealand at Derby on Wednesday.
