Dominating Indian Women’s Team Triumphs Over South African Women by 10 Wickets

IN-W vs SA-W One-off Test Match Highlights 2024

IN-W vs SA-W Match Highlights: In a historic display of cricketing prowess, the Indian women’s team secured a resounding 10-wicket victory over South Africa in a women’s Test match held in Chennai. This win marked India’s third consecutive Test match victory, following their remarkable victories against England and Australia in the winter of 2023/24.

The Indian women’s team’s triumph over South Africa completed their set of victories against all active Test-playing nations. Requiring just 37 runs to win, India sent Shubha Satheesh to open with Shafali Verma. Verma had already broken numerous records on day one, scoring a double century. The duo efficiently chased down the target in 9.2 overs, securing a ten-wicket victory.

Despite playing limited red-ball cricket, South Africa’s performance in the second innings was commendable. They thwarted the Indian attack for 238.5 balls across the two innings, scoring 373 in their second attempt, the second-highest third-innings total in women’s Test cricket history.

South Africa’s Resistance But Indian Bowlers Shine

South Africa’s women showed resilience, despite following on 337 runs behind. On the final day, they began at 232-2, with Laura Wolvaardt bringing up her maiden Test century. Wolvaardt’s 122 was a marathon effort, spanning 314 balls and 393 minutes, making her the third woman to score an international hundred in each of the three formats.

However, Deepti Sharma’s dismissal of Marizanne Kapp and Sneh Rana’s trapping of Delmi Tucker soon after put India back in control. Wolvaardt’s innings ended when Rajeshwari Gayakwad’s delivery unexpectedly hit her pad, reducing South Africa to 302-5 at lunch.

The Indian bowlers carried on their dominance after lunch. Annerie Deckerson was caught by Pooja Vastrakar in front of the stumps, while Tumi Sekhukhune was run out as a result of Nadine de Klerk’s reckless single. Jafta’s stint at the crease was brief as Shubha made an outstanding catch off of a ball from Rana.
