England's women have beaten South Africa by seven wickets to keep their hopes of winning the Cricket World Cup alive.

The current champions needed to win the match to stay in the tournament in India.

England lost just three wickets during their innings, knocking up an impressive total of 81 runs in a speedy 9.3 overs.

Star bowler Anya Shrubsole then ripped through the South African batting order, with the whole team bowled out for just 77 runs.

The team will now take on New Zealand in Mumbai on Wednesday.
