    After performing well in the last 4 games, it was sad to see India collapse like a pack of cards against a strong South Africa women team. Hope they play better against Australia and New Zealand. They need to win at least 1 more game to be assured a place in the semi-final. Smriti Mandhana needs to fire once again after low scores in her last 3 outings.
