South Africa's star pacer Shabnim Ismail took three wickets as her team beat England to reach the Women's T20 World Cup final. 

She helped her team successfully defend 164 runs as the women's side become the first South African team to reach a World Cup final.

While doing so, the South African only conceded 27 runs. 

She also equalled the record for the most wickets taken in the Women's T20 World Cup history!

The 34-year-old equalled Anya Shrubsole's 41 wickets in the competition's history. 

However, the English pacer is above Shabnim, having played fewer matches and with a better economy rate. 

Ellyse Perry is third on the list with 41 wickets in 40 matches. 

Both players will have a chance of going above Shrubsole's record on Sunday, February 26.

This is when Australia and South Africa meet in the final of the Women's T20 World Cup.
