    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!

The ball easily going to miss the leg stump and hence given not out. JUST SAFE! Bosch steps out and slices the ball over the mid-off fielder for four. Streaky boundary, that, but she'll take it. FOUR! This time, it's more convincing from Bosch. Hits the top-spinner by charging down the track and clearing the mid-off fielder with ease. After 18 overs, SA W are 58/3.

  • MAR 17, 2021 01:12 PM IST

  • MAR 17, 2021 01:00 PM IST

    One run from the first over

    Shout for a caught behind but turned out by the umpire. Replay shows the ball, sliding down the leg side, clipped the trousers of Luus. First runs come from off a wide. Wicketkeeper Sushma does well to dive to her left to pouch the ball. SA W 1/0 after the first over.

  • MAR 17, 2021 12:37 PM IST

    Tough outing with the bat

    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! Rajeshwari plays all around a straight one as the Indian innings comes to an end at 188/9. Harmanpreet will not be coming to out to bat and skipper Mithali Raj remains unbeaten on 79.

  • MAR 17, 2021 12:20 PM IST

    Eight from the 49th

    de Klerk bowls the penultimate over. Mithali picked up two off the third ball of the over. FOUR WIDES! India won't mind this. A rare loose delivery from de Klerk. Eight from the over. IND W 187/8 after 49 overs.

  • MAR 17, 2021 12:15 PM IST

    Two over to go

    Sekhukhune bowls a brilliant over, conceding just three runs. India W 179/8 after 48 overs. Rajeshawari Gayakwad is yet to get off the mark after four balls.

  • 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. Mignon du Preez has three stumps to aim with a lot of time and she makes the most of it. After 47 overs, IND W 176/8.

  • MAR 17, 2021 12:08 PM IST

  • MAR 17, 2021 12:03 PM IST

    Monica Patel walks in

    Monica Patel is the new batter. FOUR! Mithali goes about her business. Moves to 71 with a fine boundary as she smacks the ball past de Klerk and beats the mid-off fielder comfortably. Earlier in the over, Monica survived a run-out after taking a risky single. IND W 166/6 after 45 overs.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:59 AM IST


    OUT! Jhulan Goswami is gone for 5. Nondumiso Shangase gets the wicket. Goswami charges down the track and tries to clear the long-on boundary, but the timing isn't there and ends up holing out to Tumi Sekhukhune. IND W 160/6 after 44 overs.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:54 AM IST

    Good over for India

    FOUR! Mithali creams the ball between extra cover and long-off for a much-needed boundary. Seven from the 43rd over. India 157/5 after 43.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:51 AM IST

    One run off the 42nd over

    This is going to hurt India. Mithali took a single off the first ball of the over and Anne Bosch then bowled five dot balls. At this stage, Mithali has to play most of the deliveries if India were to get to a fighting total. IND W 150/4 after 42 overs.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:47 AM IST

    Jhulan survives

    DROPPED! Jhulan edges a full delivery outside off and the ball flies to the keeper at an awkward height. Jafta tries to take a one-hander but ends up spilling it. Shabman Ismail is denied her first scalp of the day. IND W 149/5 after 41 overs.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:45 AM IST

    India continue to struggle

    In the last 57 balls, India have only managed to score 25 runs, while losing two wickets. That was when Harmanpreet Kaur walked off and allowed South Africa to gain control again.

  • 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 Raj! A captain's knock by Mithali, to say the least. Came in when South Africa were on a roll and has steadied the ship with a fighting fifty. After 38 overs, IND W 138/4

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:31 AM IST

    Sushma Verma is in at No.6

    A successful over for de Klerk. A wicket in her sixth over and gave away just 3 runs. Mithali just one run away from her fifty.

  • 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

    An economical over from Sekhukhune, giving away just the one run. Hemalatha is yet to get off the mark. And India have now taken the batting powerplay. After 35 overs, IND w 132/3.

  • 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

    Mithali on the charge

    The India captain has decided to take the attack to the South Africa bowlers. Two boundaries in two overs for the stylish right-hander. India Women 119/3.

  • MAR 17, 2021 11:00 AM IST

    Record for Mithali-Harmanpreet

    14th fifty-plus partnership between Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur in 45 ODIs - the most between an Indian pair in the history of women's cricket. India Women going strong. The pair betters the record of 13th fifty-plus stands between Mithali Raj and Anjum Chopra (13).

  • 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.
