PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The reason for this extra game is the upturn in the weather forecast at the end of what has otherwise been a frustrating week at times. The sun is due to shine on the cricket.
The slow, Surat wicket has been tough for batting. Spinners have picked up plenty of wickets and the pace bowlers’ own success has been evident that this is a wicket for bowlers of all sorts – it is not one for the batsmen.
- India has stuck with the same team in all three matches so far, with the focus clearly on building momentum.
- The extra game could be a chance for some rotation, but Anuja Patil and Arundhati Reddy are yet to feature.
- After a long streak without winning, it is India’s turn to put together a good run of results now.
- The hosts have an unassailable 3-0 lead in this series, with the bowlers in particular impressing. Deepti Sharma has six wickets, as does Poonam Yadav, while Radhav Yadav has gone one better with seven.
- Harmanpreet Kaur’s batting has complemented those bowling efforts to earn India three wins from three with two wash-outs.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF INDIA WOMEN
Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Poonam Yadav, Shikha Pandey
SOUTH AFRICA WOMEN
- Anneke Bosch made her WT20i debut last time out so only Trisha Chetty has not played so far in this series for the Proteas.
- With the batting struggling, she would add experience if recalled at the top of the order.
- South Africa have been outplayed in this series so far, failing to get after the Indian bowlers.
- They have a high score of 119 from the first game so far.
- There have been some highlights Mignon du Preez’s half-century and Nadine de Klerk and Shabnim Ismail’s five wickets apiece but South Africa has otherwise fallen well below India’s standard.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF SOUTH AFRICA WOMEN
Lizelle Lee (wk), Trisha Chetty, Tazmin Brits, Laura Wolvaardt, Nadine de Klerk, Mignon du Preez, Sune Luus (c), Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Tumi Sekhukhune, Anneke Bosch
