    THATS IT! Super win by South Africa. They stay alive in the series. India lead 2-1. It was Shabnim Ismail, Sune Luus and Chloe Tryon starred for the home side.

    OUT! Chloe Tryon falls after playing a handy knock of 34. She was Anuja Patil’s first wicket. Marizaane Kaap in the middle. SA need 2 to win

  • 3:59 PM IST

    SA need 13 off 12 balls. All 3 results possible when SA play. Luus and Tyron in the middle.

  • 3:49 PM IST

    Chloe Tyron is capable of clearing any ground. She is at her task straight away. Sune Luus is already set. Anuja Patil has an over left. Could be anyone’s game.

  • 3:40 PM IST

    Mignon du Preez falls owing to a rising run-rate. India women on top. They need 50 off 36 balls.

  • 3:27 PM IST

    Runs have dried up. Poonam Yadav is something. Her flight and slowness is surely to watch out for. She has choked the run flow. SA need 79 off 60 balls. They are currently 55 for 2.

  • 3:14 PM IST

    Gayakwad’s wicket-to-wicket bowling, extra flight and over-aggression from van Niekerk sends her back in the pavilion. SA now 34-2.

    Jinxed…I have solely jinxed Lee. But I definitely don’t mind it. She goes for a glory shot, doesn’t connect well and is caught at the deep. Shikha strikes, SA 12/1.

  • 3:00 PM IST

    So far, so good from South Africa. India have a good field set for Lizelle Lee. Nonetheless, with such a small total to defend, India need quick wickets.

  • 2:53 PM IST

    Lizelle Lee and Dane van Niekerk are out in the middle. South Africa will look to win this T20I and stay alive in the series. Pooja Vastrakar to open the bowling for India.

India-Women-vs-South-Africa-Women-1

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the third T20I between India Women and South Africa Women at The Wanderers, Johannesburg. I am Aditya Sahay and will bring you the live updates from the match.

Having won the ODI series 2-1, India lead 2-0 in the T20I series. Hosts will look to stay in the contest by denying India an unassailable lead in the five-match series. In both the matches, India chased down the totals set by South Africa. In the first T20I at Potchefstroom, India chased down 165 courtesy brisk knocks from Mithali Raj, Smirti Mandhana, Jemima Rodrigues and Veda Krishnamurthy.

In the next game, at East London, India were chasing 144. Mithali and Smriti put up a 106-run opening stand. The chase was a cakewalk.

Following the women’s match, the men’s side will take on each other at the same venue, in what will be their first T20I of the series.
