Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of India Women vs South Africa Women 2017-18. This is the fourth T20I of the series to be played at the Centurion. Here you will get all the live updates and scores from the match. India Women have had a fruitful tour, winning the ODI series and now are aiming to seal the T20I series. India are 2-1 ahead in the T20Is.

South Africa pulled off a comeback in the T20I series, winning the third match at Johannesburg. Apart from Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and Veda Krishnamurthy, no other batter reached double-digit scores. India’s innings ended with 133 runs on the board in 17.5 overs. Shabnim Ismail registered figures of 5 for 30 — second-best by any South African cricketer in the shortest format.

Despite an early strike, Indian bowlers could not be as lethal. Dane van Niekerk, Sune Luus and Chloe Tryon scored ample runs to take the team to their first win in the series, with six deliveries to spare.
