In the 3-match T20 International (T20I) series, from July 5th to 9th at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the Proteas won the 1st match by 12 runs, while the 2nd match was abandoned due to persistent rain. In the 3rd and final T20I, India won by 10 wickets. With this victory, India registered their 100th WT20I win out of 187 matches.

In the 3rd T20I, Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and chose to field first. Unlike the earlier two matches, India had a great start as Shreyanka Patil provided the breakthrough by dismissing Laura Wolvaardt. The Indian team then showcased excellent fielding skills, and the bowling unit performed exceptionally well, dismissing the Proteas for a mere 84 runs. India chased the target comfortably without losing wickets and leveled the T20I series 1-1.

The Indian women’s team played their first T20I match against England on August 5, 2006, at Derby, during their tour of Ireland and England. In their impressive debut, they secured their first T20I win by 8 wickets under the captaincy of Mithali Raj.

In the shorter format, the India team has seen five captains: Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Anjum Chopra, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Smriti Mandhana. Out of the 187 T20I matches India has played, they have lost 80, 1 match has been tied, and 6 had no result.
