Chedean Nation made 26, but no other batter managed double figures.

South Africa reached their target in only 38 balls, the fastest run chase to complete a 10-wicket win in any women's 50-over one-day international.

West Indies have lost all three of their opening games and face a struggle to reach the semi-finals.

The format of the tournament has all eight teams playing each other in the group stage, with the top four progressing to the knockout phase.
