Date and Day – 29 September 2019, Sunday.
Match 3 – India Women v/s South Africa Women.
Time-7:00 PM IST.
Venue – Surat.
The second game of the series was washed out due to rain. The series eventually becomes more interesting with India already 1-0 up. Indian Women’s team just requires one more win to make sure that the series at least ends in a draw. While South Africa will have to win every game from here on to win the series, which is very unlikely to happen.
No team would like to tinker with their playing 11. While Shafali Verma and Pooja Vastrakar didn’t have a good game in the first T20, but one could expect them to bounce back. Even the under-fire South African batting lineup could come to the party and help the Experienced Campaigners like Mignon du Preez and Sune Luus.
Head to Head
The last match was abandoned between these two teams and the first encounter was a close game. With the Indian spinner playing a major role in India’s victory.
Played-5, India-2, South Africa-1, NR-1, Abandoned-1.
