  • July 09, 2024 21:11
    IND 74/0 in 10 overs

    Mlaba is back. South African bowlers are erring on the length. Too many short balls has allowed time to Smriti and Shafali to pull and find gaps. SIX! Mandhana comes down the track and smacks the ball towards midwicket. A single to end the over.

  • July 09, 2024 20:56
    IND 40/0 in 6 overs

    Nonkululeko Mlaba into the attack. FOUR! Smriti smacks a good length ball past the cover fielder. The intent has been pretty good by both Indian openers. Another boundary!

    Eliz-Mari Marx is introduced into the attack. FOUR! Short ball and Shafali pulls it towards midwicket and gets a boundary.

Short ball and it is called a wide. Another pull but this time there’s a fielder there, only a single.

  • July 09, 2024 20:40
    IND 12/0 in 2 overs

    Marizanne Kapp into the attack. She begins with the stump-line attack, bringing the ball into the left-hander. On the third ball though, she bowls the one that moves the other way! Beats Mandhana on the outside edge. Mandhana this time beats cover fielder inside the circle and gets a double. A quiet over, just two off it. 

  • July 09, 2024 20:36
    IND 10/0 in 1 over

    Ayabonga Khaka with the new ball. Shafali takes the strike and takes a single on the first ball. Smriti Mandhana cuts past point and gets a four! Another boundary! Back-to-back fours for Smriti.

    Mlaba c S Sajana b Radha Yadav 0(2)

  • July 09, 2024 20:15
    84/7 in 16 overs

    Deepti to bowl out. Both Marx and Jafta seem more comfortable taking singles at the moment. Jafta lifts the ball but it lands short of long on. An appeal for LBW but no reactions. Four runs off the over. 

  • July 09, 2024 20:10
    80/7 in 15 overs

    Arundhati to bowl her third. Slides down leg for a single. Jafta was looking to sweep but gets an edge. OUT!! Tryon, SA’s last hope for a competitive total, hits it straight up and Radha takes the catch safely.

  • July 09, 2024 19:59
    66/6 in 13 overs

    Radha returns. Tryon takes a single, hitting the ball to deep square leg. Ouch! Radha gets hit by a throw from the field. She seems okay. OUT!! Dercksen gets hit on the pads and the umpire gives it. Player review taken but in vain! Radha gets her first wicket of the match!

    Annerie Dercksen lbw b Radha Yadav 2 (7)

    Jafta comes in to the crease. South Africa has now last all its reviews. Jafta defends the first ball and takes a single on the second. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:56
    63/5 in 12 overs

    Shreyanka to bowl her third over. New batter in for the Proteas is Annerie Dercksen. A superb over by the spinner as she gives only two runs.

  • July 09, 2024 19:48
    61/5 in 11 overs

    Vastrakar is back. Four!! Bosch starts strong after the drinks break and hits it past backward point. And that’s a big appeal for an LBW. South Africa takes the review. Wickets clearly hitting and umpire stays with his initial decision of OUT!!

    Bosch lbw b Vastrakar 17(14)

    de Klerk is the new batter in. Defends the first ball. OUT!! A thich outside edge and that’s the game for de Klerk. Leaves for a duck. Vastrakar now has three wickets.

  • July 09, 2024 19:36
    SA 49/3 in 9 overs

    Arundhati is back. A hint of swing into the right hander Tryon, she gets a leading edge into the gap of cover and extra cover for a single. Been a while since South Africa has managed to hit a boundary. A huge appeal for LBW against Tryon. Umpire says not out but India has taken a review. The ball came back in and beat Tryon on the inside edge. Ball tracking says wickets missing. Decision stays. A single to end the over. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:30
    SA 45/3 in 8 overs

    Deepti Sharma now. Bosch tries to sweep the first ball but is beaten. On the next ball she middles the sweep towards square leg, a slight misfield in the deep and the batters run a double. OUT! Brits is gone as well. Comes down the track and hits the ball straight mid off. A terrific diving catch by Harmanpreet. Brits goes for 20.

    Chloe Tryon in at number five. ALMOST chips it straight to Deepti! Deepti dives but isn’t able to get hold off the ball. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:27
    SA 42/2 in 7 overs

    Radha Yadav into the attack now. Indian bowlers have tried to keep the ball in the stumps. Has worked so far. Just three singles in that over.

    SA 39/2 in 6 overs

    Anneke Bosch in the new batter in.

  • July 09, 2024 19:17
    SA 30/2 in 5 overs

    Vastrakar is back. Length ball outside off and Brits is beaten as she tries to slash it. She takes a single on the next ball. Kapp is beaten on the frontfoot. A bit of lateral movement is there. Now Kapp lofts and just over the cover fielder to get a double. Didn’t time it that well. OUT! Kapp is gone. Length ball and she tries to pull it but ends up hitting straight to short midwicket fielder. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:12
    SA 27/1 in 4 overs

She plays a dot. Shreyanka once again switches to over the wicket. Good length outside off and Kapp cuts past point for another four. Eventful over that. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:08
    SA 19/0 in 3 overs

    Arundhati Reddy into the attack now. Starts off with a dot. An appeal for LBW on the second ball. Probably going down the leg as umpire shows no interest in the appeal. A hint of swing into the right hander, on the pads and Brits flicks it towards midwicket and gets a double. Just two runs off the over so far. One more ball left. Brits defends the incoming delivery. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:05
    SA 17/0 in 2 overs

    Sajana from the other end. Half-volley, Brits smacks a drive but a terrific fielding inside the circle cuts it to double. This time she finds the gap past the cover fielder. Similar delivery and gets a boundary. Pulls a shorter length delivery for a single towards midwicket. FOUR! This time its Wolvaardt. Full ball outside off and she lofts over cover. 

  • July 09, 2024 19:02
    SA 6/0 in 1 over

    Vastrakar to Wolvaardt, single on the first ball towards long leg. Brits then tucks the ball behind square leg for a single.
