India Women lock horns with South Africa Women in the dead rubber game of the 3rd T20I. South Africa have drubbed India in both the games and have taken un unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. India crashed all its expectations and once again slumped to an unwanted situation. The final match will be taking place at 7:00 PM (IST).
India Women have lost the series and can only look forward to a consolation victory in the third T20I. After losing 1-4 in the ODI series, India’s woes continued as they failed to turn things around in the T20I series. Indian team stand-in captain Smriti Mandhana said it was a bitter pill to swallow post their defeat in the second match. She said this because India were in a strong position after the first innings but lackluster fielding in the second innings costed India the game. Young 17-year-old Shafali Verma scored 47 off just 31 deliveries and is a must-pick.
South Africa Women have been in tremendous form. They have pocketed the series and will be looking forward to continue their winning momentum. Lizelle Lee yet again scored a half-century and piled up 70 runs. Her innings was laced with 11 fours and 1 six. Laura Wolvaardt too scored 53 runs and bagged the Player of the Match award.
