India vs South Africa (IND vs SA) Women’s 4th T20 Highlights: South African batters failed the Indian spin test yet again as six of their batters got out to spin bowlers. They failed to keep up the required run rate and managed to score just 89 for seven wickets chasing a target of 140 in a rain-curtailed 17 overs per side game. Only two South African batters registered double-digit scores – Laura Wolvaardt (23) and Tazmin Brits. Poonam Yadav took three wickets whereas Radha Yadav took two. South Africa team management may have missed a trick by sending in-form batter and half-centurion of the previous game, Mignon du Preez in to bat when the required run rate was alarming.
Put to bat first, Indian openers were able to utilise the powerplay overs. Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana were aided by the dropped catches and sloppy fielding from the South African side. Shafali scored a 33-ball 46 after bagging a duck on debut. Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma contributed towards the end of the innings and helped India post 140 for four wickets in the first innings. India have taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the five-match T20I series.
