During the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 match between South Africa and Sri Lanka, Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp became the first and only married couple to bat together in the ICC tournament.

The South African women cricketers van Niekerk and Kapp tied the knot earlier this year in July and became the second women's cricket pair to get married after New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu.

In the match against Sri Lanka at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, the pair shared a 67-run stand for the third wicket. South Africa won by seven wickets, successfully chasing down 100.

The match-winning half century association was disrupted in the 14th over when Kapp was trapped in front of the wickets with South Africa’s score board reading 73.

While Kapp scored 38 off 44 balls, which included four fours and a six, captain van Niekerk, finished unbeaten on 33 off 45 balls. The latter managed to pick two boundaries.

The all-rounder pair chipped in with a wicket each as well. Pacer Shabnim Ismail walked away with the Player of the Match award as she took three wickets from her quota of 10 overs besides giving away just 10 runs.

This was South Africa’s first win in last couple of matches. For Sri Lanka, it was the first defeat in two matches after their first game against England was washed out due to rain.
