Mighty Indian Women’s team will square off against host South Africa Women in the summit clash of the tri-series. While unbeaten India will be favourites in the most crucial game of the series, South Africa cannot be underestimated as they have notched up back-to-back wins against West Indies Women. Let’s look at the fantasy prediction for the Ind W vs SA W, final clash.
Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana are the top-two performers for Women in Blue, and are also among the leading run-getters in the competition. Jemimah Rodrigues is another prolific batter at the top order to watch out for.
Meanwhile, right-arm orthodox Deepti Sharma has bagged the most number of wickets in the tournament till now and will be hoping to end the tour with one more clinical performance. Pooja Vastrakar was instrumental in the previous game with two wickets and should be included in the fantasy squad.
Talking about the host, Marizanne Kapp is the leading run-getter for the team which makes them an automatic pick for the fantasy team. Meanwhile, Laura Wolvaardt is a top-notch all-rounder, while Sune Luus could be another threat to team India in the middle-order with her all-rounder capabilities. She is also a terrific fielder.
Right-arm medium arm medium pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker for the host with 5-wickets in three games. Nonkululeko Mlaba should be part of the fantasy team for her ability to take crucial wickets.
