Smriti Mandhana slammed 135 and helped India Women post 302 against South Africa. In the process, she became the first Indian Women to score century against South Africa in South Africa. Prior to this series, Smriti had never played in South Africa. Smriti surpassed her personal best score of 106 that she registered against West Indies in the 2017 Women’s World Cup. She also put up the highest partnership for any wicket (134 with Harmanpreet Kaur) for India against South Africa in South Africa. Harman and Veda Krishnamurthy then completed the task towards the end with fifties to take the score beyond 300. It was a day when everyone wished the telecast was available to witness a match where several records were shattered. However, we have the video here to help you relive those moments (live) from the match.

Jhulan Goswami and Indian spinners assisted India win by 178 runs. Not only did Jhulan hand India their first breakthrough, she also scalped her 200th ODI wicket in the process, the only woman cricketer to achieve this feat. Laura Wolvaardt became her victim. Meanwhile, Poonam Yadav ended with four wickets, the joint second-best figures by an Indian against South Africa in their den. Jhulan had similar figures in the first ODI.
