Meanwhile New Zealand thrashed Sri Lanka by nine wickets at Bristol.

The ICC Women's World Cup defending champions, Australia already has won the cup six-time, but face tough competition from other teams that are in full form and the roll out of these matches will surely be extremely entertaining.

Eight teams will be in action in the Women's World Cup, and top four sides will qualify for the semifinals after the league matches.

The ground, dressed in its Women's World Cup branding and with the boundary bordered by electronic advertising boards, looked a picture.

Saturday saw India launch the 11th Women's World Cup with a 35-run win over tournament hosts and three-time champions England in Derby.

A disappointed Knight said, "Really nice to have a good game of cricket but disappointing not to come away with the win".

The women's game, has evolved so much since then, that full-time contracts, players travelling around the world and the new women's t20 competiton, started previous year, have all made the game as good as the men's format.

"We want to take every game as it comes and we don't want to get ahead of ourselves". The Women's World Cup also has Stafanie Taylor lead West Indies women's team and is known for making the record of being the only women's player to reach ODI and T20I world No.1.

Four years ago, these two teams met in the final match of the group stages in a winner-takes-all clash.

"My advice to the team would be similar to the one that I gave to the men's team - the players must play fearless cricket and shouldn't be anxious about defeat", Afridi wrote in his column for the International Cricket Council (ICC) website.

It has been a long road since Derbyshire announced in March 2015 that they meant to bid to be a host city for the tournament but all the hard work felt worth the effort on Saturday.

The qualified teams playing in the tournament are Australia, England.

South Africa: Dane van Niekerk (captain), Trisha Chetty, Moseline Daniels, Marizanne Kapp, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Shabnim Ismail, Nadine de Klerk, Lizelle Lee, Sune Luus, Raisibe Ntozhake, Mignon du Preez, Andrie Steyn, Chloe Tryon and Laura Wolfvaardt.
