Sune Luus, the skipper of South Africa Women, says it was a tournament to remember, the support was amazing. Adds they lost wickets at the wrong time and it got tough. Ends by saying the pressure is now on CSA to help grow women's cricket.
Ashleigh Gardner, Player of the Tournament, says she has been waiting for this moment. Adds the semi-final performance was their best. She was in good form and she is happy she did well here too.

Time for the Presentations...
Laura Wolvaardt says it was a really good tournament, it is never easy to beat the Aussies. Ends by saying the support was excellent.
Ellyse Perry says it is an amazing feeling, there were ups and downs during their bowling. Adds Laura Wolvaardt played really well. Ends by saying she's pleased to win it.
Also, the bowlers backed it up brilliantly, especially at the start. The Powerplay bowling was magical which put South Africa right onto the back foot. Laura played a blinder but the start her side got was way too slow and it was too much of an ask. She kept her side's hopes alive till she was in but once she fell, the lower order could not pull off a miracle.
How important was that innings from Mooney? It is because of her Australia crossed the 150-run mark and the crucial runs she scored at the end made the difference.
Champions yet again! This Aussie side are just too good. Unbeatable is the word for them. Jubilation in their camp. Stunning effort.
