That's all for today. Goodbye!
The Proteas juggernaut continues. This SA W side has been the better side in all three departments throughout the series. A dominating five-wicket win to seal their 10th win in their last 11 matches. Earlier in the chase, they were left reeling due to Rajeshwari Gayakwad's brilliance. However, once Bosch and du Preez walked in, the tide turned in the visitors' favour. The two put on 96 runs for the fourth wicket to lay the foundation for the win. They fell in quick succession but Marizanne Kapp and Nadine de Klerk batted quite brilliantly to ensure their team got over the line. Up next is the T20I series, beginning on Saturday, March 20. See you guys then. It's goodbye for now!

South Africa Women produced an excellent display with the ball which never really allowed India Women the freedom to score at will. Priya Punia and Smriti Mandhana scored 18 runs each. India were reduced to 53/3. Skipper Mithali and Harmanpreet then rebuilt the innings and just when runs started to come at a quicker rate, the latter limped off and was retired hurt. This allowed SA W to get back into the game and take command once again. Mithali brought up her fifty but kept losing partners at the other end. Eventually, India finished at 188/9 in 43.3 overs. Nadine de Klerk was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors, bagging three wickets in 10 overs. Sekhukhune and Shangase claimed two wickets each.
MAR 17, 2021 12:23 PM IST
IND W finish on after 188/9 after 49.3 overs.
Sekhukhune bowls the final. Mithali goes for a maximum but the timing wasn't really there and couldn't return for the second. Rajeshwari plays a dot next ball. Bowled!

MAR 17, 2021 12:20 PM IST

MAR 17, 2021 12:12 PM IST
Direct hit and she is gone
A mix-up between Mithali and Pratyusha and the latter falls well short of her crease. Mithali glides the ball to third man and after some confusion between the two batters, Pratyusha makes a late charge to the danger end.

MAR 17, 2021 11:59 AM IST

MAR 17, 2021 11:51 AM IST

MAR 17, 2021 11:47 AM IST

MAR 17, 2021 11:45 AM IST

MAR 17, 2021 11:44 AM IST
10 overs to go, IND W 148/4
FOUR! A gift from Bosch. A full-toss and a player as experienced as Mithali wasn't going to miss out. Puts it comfortably through the gap for her sixth four of the innings. FOUR! Jhulan Goswami off the mark with a boundary. Full and outside off, Jhulan pierces the gap between gully and point with ease to get off the mark in style. IND W 148/4 after 40 overs.
MAR 17, 2021 11:40 AM IST
Jhulan Goswami walks out
An even better over, as compared to her last, by de Klerk. Gave only one run away and picked up the wicket of Sushma Verma. IND W 139/5 after 39 overs.
MAR 17, 2021 11:38 AM IST
Sushma gone for a duck
de Klerk makes it two in two overs. Sushma Verma has been sent packing for a 10-ball duck. She is wrapped on the pads as she played across the line. A disappointing end for Verma's stay at the crease. After 38.4 overs, IND W 139/5
MAR 17, 2021 11:34 AM IST
FIFTY FOR MITHALI

MAR 17, 2021 11:30 AM IST
de Klerk dimisses Hemalatha for 2.
Miscued but safe. Hemalatha tries to take the aerial route over mid-on but doesn't get the elevation. The ball falls just short of the fielder. OUT! Hemalatha never really got going today. Fishes outside off, trying to guide the ball behind square but ends up nicking the ball to the wicketkeeper. A good catch by Sinalo Jafta. After 36.4 overs, IND W 137/4.
MAR 17, 2021 11:27 AM IST
Hemalatha off the mark
And she if finally off the mark after 12 balls. An off cutter from Kapp and Hemalatha guides the ball to third man for a single. Marizanne Kapp finishes her spell with figures of 10-1-26-1. After 36 overs, IND W 134/3.
MAR 17, 2021 11:23 AM IST
Economical over from Sekhukhune

MAR 17, 2021 11:18 AM IST
Mithali into the 40s
Mithali hits Kapp for a boundary to inch closer to her fifty. Hemalatha is yet to get off the mark. After 33.4 overs, IND W 130/3.
MAR 17, 2021 11:09 AM IST
Harmanpreet limping off the field
This looks like a big blow to India, Harmanpreet Kaur has just limped off the field. It appears to be a hamstring issue. She must have tweaked something while playing the attacking shot in the previous over. South Africa will consider themselves very lucky. Hemalatha is the new batter for India Women.
MAR 17, 2021 11:06 AM IST
Harmanpreet joins the party
FOUR! Now from Harmanpreet's bat. The Indians have now decided to go after the bowling. A smart shot from Harmanpreet, she knew the mind-on was inside the circle all she needed to do was clear her and she does that with perfection. India Women 124/3 in 31 overs.
MAR 17, 2021 11:03 AM IST

MAR 17, 2021 10:53 AM IST
100 up for India
FOUR! A nice punch down to long-on from Mithali Raj which brings up India's 100 in the 27th over. India Women 100 for 3 in 27 overs.
MAR 17, 2021 10:52 AM IST
This is what transpired in the first 25 overs
India Women openers Priya Puniya and Smriti Mandhana started well but Kapp got Puniya out for 18. No 3 Punam Raut and Mandhana were just helping India recover from the early blow when Shangase dismissed Raut for 10. In the very next over Mandhana too perished for 18 but since then Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur have been playing well.
