    Match wrap

    After India’s bowlers did their job and restricted South Africa to a below-par total of 215, opener Smriti Mandhana along with skipper Harmanpreet Kaur eased the host towards its series clean sweep. Smriti was well on her way to her record-breaking eighth ODI century, but it was spinner Nonkululeko Mlaba who scalped the Indian’s wicket when the batter was at 90. After the opener’s wicket, it was captain Harmanpreet with her 42 runs who played an important role in seeing off the game. Next up, both sides travel to Chennai for a one-off Test match and a 3-match T20I series.

  • June 23, 2024 17:25
    Rain in Bengaluru

    Innings wrap

    It was a great start by openers Laura Wolvaardt and Tazmin Brits, who brought up South Africa’s 100 without the loss of a wicket. Arundhati Reddy got the breakthrough with skipper Wolvaardt’s wicket in the 20th over. After then, it was tough for the Proteas to sustain a partnership as Deepti Sharma, among others, slowly and steadily picked apart South Africa’s batting. Meike de Ridder’s unbeaten 26 runs off 31 balls gave some hope to the Proteas to end the innings on a good note. Now, India needs 216 in 50 overs to complete its clean sweep in this ODI series against South Africa.

    SA 215/8 after 50 overs

    Pooja Vastrakar will be bowling the final over. De Ridder tries to scoop the ball and use the pace for a boundary, but they get only a couple of runs. The next ball, de Ridder gets a FOUR as she pulls a short pitched ball that runs towards fine leg. That seemed close, as Pooja bowls a wide. Another FOUR for de Ridder. Smart batting as she scoops a slower one past a diving Richa towards fine third man. De Ridder looks for her third boundary but Jemimah says NO, as she dives and saves two runs at square leg. Just the one run from the last ball.

  • June 23, 2024 16:43
    SA 201/8 after 49 overs

    The ball has been handed to Radha for South Africa’s penultimate over. A review has been taken by India, as the ball seemed to have gone off de Ridder’s pads. However, the review shows that it was the batter’s gloves that grazed the ball. 200 comes up for South Africa.

  • June 23, 2024 16:38
    SA 196/8 after 48 overs

    It’s Shreyanka with her final over of the day. A great bit of turn as de Ridder tries to hit but misses. However, the ball goes past Richa and runs to the boundary for a FOUR. There was another instance for a caught and bowled wicket but the ball falls just short of Shreyanka.

  • June 23, 2024 16:14
    SA 176/6 in 42 overs

    SA 78/0 in 16 overs

    Shreyanka comes back for her fourth over. She keeps it on a length around off-stump and just a single off the first three balls. This one is tossed up outside off but Brits drives straight to the extra-cover fielder. Drifting on the pads and tucked away for a couple by Brits. Punched to long-on for one more by Brits to end the over. Time for drinks.

    SA 74/0 in 15 overs

    Smriti Mandhana comes into the attack and a huge roar follows from the Bengaluru crowd. Cut away for a couple by Wolvaardt off the first ball. Strayed down leg-side and nudged away for a single. On the pads again, and a leg-bye as Brits misses the whip on leg-side. FOUR! Too much width outside off and Wolvaardt gets a bottom edge and the ball runs away to the boundary at third-man. A couple more off the next delivery and this is turning out to be an expensive over. Driven by Wolvaardt for a single off the last ball and 11 runs from it.

    SA 63/0 in 14 overs

    FOUR! Short from Radha and Wolvaardt won’t miss out on that one. She pulls it to the midwicket boundary to inject some momentum into the innings. Just three singles after that first-ball boundary. 

  • June 23, 2024 14:21
    SA 56/0 in 13 overs

    Deepti will continue. She continues to be economical, just three runs from the over. After that 17-run over from Vastrakar, the runs have dried up for South Africa. Wolvaardt looks to find some momentum off the last ball of the over with a slog sweep but finds just the single at deep midwicket. 

  • June 23, 2024 14:18
    SA 53/0 in 12 overs

    The physios come on to the field to tend to Brits’ finger on her right hand. This is due to Deepti’s throw towards the keeper on the last ball in the last over, that hit the South African batter’s hand. Radha Yadav has been given the ball for her first over. A decent over as just the three runs from it.

  • June 23, 2024 14:14
    SA 50/0 in 11 overs

    Deepti continues. She keeps it on a good length, allowing just four runs from the over. Fifty up for South Africa in 11 overs. 

  • June 23, 2024 14:11
    SA 46/0 in 10 overs

    Pooja returns for her third over. Great shot by Wolvaardt down the ground, a straight hit for a FOUR. The Proteas skipper finds the gap towards mid wicket and slashes it for another FOUR. This is a South African onslaught on Pooja’s bowling! Another FOUR by Wolvaardt, this time towards the covers as the ball whizzes past diving fielders. The three back-to-back boundaries seem to have affected Pooja’s confidence as she bowls a wide in the fourth ball. Wolvaardt hits the fourth FOUR, this time towards sqaure leg. An expensive over for India, and a good end to the first powerplay for South Africa.

  • June 23, 2024 14:06
    SA 29/0 after 9 overs

    Deepti Sharma is the newest bowler to join India’s bowling attack. Chants of ‘RCB, RCB’ boom around the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, as has been the norm in the past two ODIs. Good start for Deepti as she concedes only the two runs.

  • June 23, 2024 14:02
    SA 27/0 after 8 overs

    Pooja shows her aggressive side with another bouncer towards Wolvaardt’s leg side, but the umpire gives it a wide. Another shout for a leg before wicket, this time the ball striking Brits’ pads, but the umpire is not interested. Rightly so, the ball was missing the leg stump.

  • June 23, 2024 13:58
    SA 23/0 after 7 overs

    Arundhati returns and has a good over. Just the two runs from it, as the Proteas batters would want to amp up their scoring rate.

  • June 23, 2024 13:57
    SA 21/0 after 6 overs

    A misfield from Shafali gives the Proteas a FOUR to the Proteas.

  • June 23, 2024 13:49
    SA 14/0 after 5 overs

    Only a single fielder at the boundary, at deep square leg. Wolvaardt and Brits batting cautiously, flicking the ball towards the rope for a couple of singles. Four runs from the over.

  • June 23, 2024 13:45
    SA 10/0 in 4 overs

    Arundhati returns for her second over. A few singles in the first few balls for South Africa as the Proteas’ slow start continues. So far, some great fielding by the women in blue all around the ground.

  • June 23, 2024 13:42
    SA 7/0 in 3 overs

    Shreyanka continues her spell. After a great start to the over, Brits sweeps it towards fine leg for a FOUR

  • June 23, 2024 13:38
    SA 3/0 after two overs

    Arundhati Reddy comes in for her first over. There’s a lot of movement in Reddy’s deliveries as well, very similar to the second ODI. There was a strong appeal on the fourth ball as the ball caught Brits’ pads, but it was missing the leg stump. Just a couple of overs from the over.

  • June 23, 2024 13:33
    SA 1/0 after the first over

    Wolvaardt starts with defending the first ball, and then taking a single in the second, putting Brits on strike. The offie’s deliveries are spinning quite acutely as Brits was almost caught off guard, twice in a row. Brits fails to get bat on ball on the last ball of the over, that spun a lot. Just the one run.

    South Africa set to open its innings

    It’s Tazmin Brits and skipper Laura Wolvaardt at the crease. Shreyanka Patil to open the bowling.

    What happened in the second ODI between India Women and South Africa Women?

    It was a nail-biter of match that saw four centuries, two from the Indian camp (Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur) and two from South Africa (Marizanne Kapp and Laura Wolvaardt). At the end, it was Pooja Vastrakar’s nerve that pulled off a brilliant last over, thereby handing the victory to India, which sealed the series with a 4-run win over the Proteas.

    Here’s the match report by our correspondent N Sudarshan:

    South Africa was shoddy in the field, dropping as many as three catches, fluffing two run-outs and a stumping, mistakes that cost the tie.
