The pair played out a 17-end four-and-a-half hour battle in dreary, drizzly conditions on Wednesday morning.

Small maintains her place at the top of the table ahead of Malaysia’s Mukri Moira, who is equal on four points but behind on shot difference.

Hinton went ahead by two shots in the first end, and the pair traded ends until the 10th, when they were tied 10-each.

Small, 70, won the next four ends to take the match 15-10. She will face Zimbabwe’s Sibanda Constance or Vivian Berkeley (CAN) in the final on Thursday, 1 August.
