Teams Preview

India Women Preview

India suffered an early setback after an injury to its star player Smriti Mandana before the match. Openers Jemimah Rodrigues and Priya Punia scored their half-centuries to kill the chase with ease. Indian batters were never really challenged in the chase as they strolled along in 41 overs.

Indian bowlers restricted the South African team to a paltry score of 164 runs in the first essay. Pacers Jhulan Goswami and Shikha Pandey shared 5 wickets between them to set the tone of the match. Indian spinner’s trio of Deepti Sharma, Ekta Bisht, and Poonam Yadav applied the choke in the middle overs giving away runs at 3 RPO and claiming 5 wickets too.

Key Players:

Priya Punia – Punia came in as a replacement for Mandana and played her role to perfection scoring an unbeaten 75* in the chase. Her 83-run partnership killed any hopes of a win for the South Africa team in the chase.

Ekta Bisht – Ekta Bisht took the wickets of Mignon Du Preez and Trisha Shetty with her flight and guile forming an effective partnership with keeper Taniya Bhatia. Her wickets stormed the South African middle order.

India Women Predicted Playing XI:

Harmanpreet Kaur, Mithali Raj (c), Priya Punia, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Poonam Raut, Taniya Bhatia (wk), , Shafali Verma, Jhulam Goswami, Ekta Bisht

South Africa Women Preview

South Africa was setback very early with the wicket of Lizelle Lee on the first ball. Laura Wolvaardt (39 runs) tried to build a partnership but wickets kept falling at the other end. Marizanne Kapp played a fighting knock with the lower order to score a fifty and take the team total to a respectable 164 runs. South African batting unit needs to score runs more consistently at the top to set the tone of the innings. Their bowling unit was left with very few runs to pressurize the Indian batswomen. Nadine De Klerk and Nondumiso Shangese took a wicket each. Shabnam Ismail, Marizanne Kapp, Ayaboonga Kyaka, and Tumi Sekhukune gave away runs at less than 4 RPO but Indian batters bid their time and took a risk-free approach in the chase.

Key Players:

Marizanne Kapp – Kapp splayed a fighting knock of 54 runs with the bat and bowled an economical spell of 5-0-19-0 in the match. She took their team from 103/6 to 164 with very little contribution from the lower order as the last 5 players were dismissed for single-digit scores.

Tumi Sekhukhune – She bowled very good spell of 7-2-22-0 to strangle the Indian team in the middle overs. A small chase meant the Indian team negotiated her with ease and went about their business.

South Africa Women Predicted Playing XI:

Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Nadine de Klerk, Trisha Chetty (wk), Mignon du Preez, Sune Luus (c), Marizanne Kapp, Nondumiso Shangase, Ayabonga Khaka, Shabnim Ismail, Tumi Sekhukhune

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

The weather looks bright and sunny with very less to no chances of rain so we expect an uninterrupted match.

Venue Details

The pitch is on the slower side and batters might find it hard to time the ball with ease. Both Indian spinners and pacers took wickets in the previous match. Any target above 260 runs will be tough to chase.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch slows down as the match progresses and so both teams will look to bat first and put a good score on board.

Winning Prediction

Indian team suffered very little due to the loss of Mandana`s injury as the incoming player played her role to perfection. Indian bowling unit is taking wickets consistently and performing as a team. South Africa is yet to perform well with bat and ball except for the last T20I match. We expect India to win this match.

India will win the match & series 2-0!
