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

The Proteas reached 113-0 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 on Tuesday, again at Leicester, while South Africa play New Zealand at Derby on Wednesday.
