India Women lock horns with South Africa Women in this 5th and final ODI of the ODI series between the two nations. South Africa have already pocketed off the series as they have won 3 out of 4 matches. Thus, the last match will be a dead rubber.
India Women have lost the series already and a win in this game will be a consolation victory for them. They are playing international cricket after a year and the players were a tad rusty. Punam Raut scored yet another brilliant knock as she notched up her 3rd ODI century. In the 3rd ODI too, she shone with the bat and struck 77. She is in sublime form and is a must-pick in your fantasy 11. Skipper Mithali Raj has been in rollicking form and is another definite pick.
South Africa Women have been exceptional in this series. Their top-order has been ruling the roost and the opening combination of Lizelle Lee and Laura Wolvaardt has been scoring runs at ease. South Africa eased to a 7-wicket victory with 10 balls to spare. This proves their batting form has been invincible.
