South Africa Women Preview

South Africa came into this series after some impressive performances in the T20I format recently but failed to make a mark here. They will be dejected the batting in this series as their scorecard read 119-all out & 89/7 (17 overs) in both the matches. Laura Wolvaart and Tazmin Brits are the only players to score runs in double digits in the last match. Mignon Du Preez failed in this match after a fighting fifty in the first match. They are struggling against the Indian spinners especially. Nadine De Klerk is their most successful bowler so far with 4 wickets in this series. Their spin duo of Sune Luus and Nonkululeko Mlaba is yet to take a wicket this series in the two matches.

Their bowling unit needs to trouble the Indian batting order more consistently and should not allow them to build vital partnerships easily.

Key Players:

Lizelle Lee – Lee is an aggressive opener who is capable of taking the game away in the power plays. She has scores of just 16 & 9 in the two matches and will be looking to play a big knock in this match. Sune Luus – Skipper Sune Luus is going through a rough patch giving away 30 runs off 3 overs without taking a wicket in the 2 matches. She has also failed with the bat with just 5 runs. She must inspire her team from the front with her performance.

South Africa Women Predicted Playing XI:

Lizelle Lee (wk), Tazmin Brits, Laura Wolvaardt, Nadine de Klerk, Mignon du Preez, Sune Luus (c), Shabnim Ismail, Lara Goodall, Ayabonga Khaka, Tumi Sekhukhune, Nonkululeko Mlaba
