India Women will take on South Africa Women in the second T20I of the three-match series at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Following their comprehensive wins in the ODIs and Tests, the Indian cricket team suffered their first defeat in the opening T20I in Chennai. While the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side will eye to return to winning ways, the Laura Wolvaardt-led side, meanwhile, will aim to end the tour on a high, hoping to clinch the series. 

Pitch Report

The pitches at the MA Chidambaram are known to assist the spinners, but the presence of dew in the field could add to the advantage of the batters. With that, the average first innings score of 140.8 in WT20s at this venue will be far from enough for either India or South Africa to defend in the second T20I of the series.

Team Analysis

India Women 

Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma are one of the most formidable opening pairs in all formats, who have provided fast starts at the top of the order. Whereas, captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and the other batters in the Indian team would need to capitalise to level the series. On the bowling side of things, India will be relying on Renuka Thakur and Arundhati Reddy to pick up early wickets in the upcoming T20I series before the likes of Asha Shobhana and Deepti Sharma put the squeeze on the opposition in the middle overs.

South Africa Women

South Africa will be needing their experienced batting trio of the captain Laura Wolvaardt, Sune Luus, and Marizanne Kapp to do the bulk of the scoring in the upcoming match after Kapp and Tanzim Brits did the job in the opening T20I. The role of Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, and Tumi Sekhukhune will be to keep the scoring rate of the opposition batters in check, to help the side seal the series with a win on Sunday.
