Fresh off her sparkling innings of 150 in the first innings of the one-off Test against England at Taunton, Marizanne Kapp says that playing the format more often would grow the game.

The 32-year-old joked that at her age, it probably wouldn’t be the best idea to play more often on a personal note, but that she would still like to see it happen.

“Honestly at the age where I’m at now, it probably wouldn’t be the best decision; but I definitely feel like if we want to grow women’s cricket even more, it’s definitely needed. Out there, you can try things and learn so much about yourself, so I would definitely like to see women’s cricket play a lot more Tests.”

To date, only four nations have ever played Test matches in women’s cricket – Australia, England, India and South Africa – with fixtures few and far between. Prior to day one on Monday, the last time the Proteas played the game’s longest format was in 2014, when they lost to India by an innings and 34 runs.
