South Africa will return home without the ultimate prize after their nail-biting two-wicket defeat to England in their ICC Women's World Cup semi-final.
Knight said: "It was hard watching those last 10 overs from the balcony, but we are just absolutely delighted". "We've got a goal as a team and that's to win a World Cup". I'm proud of how Jenny Gunn has played in this tournament, she's taken every opportunity she's had.
"It's a huge achievement for them as it's frightful to lose when you get that close".
For the visitors, Sune was the pick of the bowlers grabbing two wickets.
Lauren Winfield's form at the top is a concern, but, barring injuries, England are unlikely to make too many changes for a knockout game.
England would book a place in the Women's World Cup cricket final if they beat South Africa today as they go in search of a first major trophy in eight years. The birthday girl removed both openers in an unchanged spell of 10 overs, 28 runs and 2 wickets.
Knight said: "We haven't put in a flawless performance in the tournament yet but we keep finding ways to win".
Knight, whose side have now won seven successive games after losing their opening match against India, said: "We've not put the ideal performance together yet, but we just keep finding ways to win".
"The biggest prize was always going to be that final at Lord's, but it is something we have really enjoyed, putting on shows for the crowds, and with that tight game, what a spectacle it was", Knight added. In that sense I'm very proud of the girls, it's our first semi-final since 2000.
"I saw the score on the board and said it was going to be close, that anything can happen, but well done to Heather and her team". Financial institution Momentum had just bought the naming rights to the men's one-day global squad and the domestic one-day cup and expressed an interest in extending their sponsorship to the women, a property that was not up for sale at the time.
"We set out a goal before leaving South Africa and we spoke a lot about our brand of cricket and playing that instead of the opposition", she said.
"We had great support and a great run".
"There's a lot of trust in the team at the moment and belief in your mate next to you, but saying that, we're nowhere near the finished article as a team". Replays showed the ball was missing leg stump.
Du Preez, who had 38 singles by the time she reached her fifty, combined with Luus to lift the innings slightly in the final stretch with an unbroken 48-run stand. Brunt, who had a maiden in the Batting Power Play, and conceded three in the 47th over of the innings, was livid at being taken for a four in the penultimate one.
