IND vs SA 2nd ODI: India survives last ball scare against South Africa

Despite the bravery of Marizanne Kapp and Laura Wolvaardt, the Proteas lost the ODI series against India at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

India women have registered a historic series win over South Africa women. Valiant efforts from Laura Wolvaardt (135) and Marizanne Kapp (114) went in vain as they failed to take the team over the line. The South African women lost the game by just 4 runs in this high-scoring chase of 325. Now, the Women in Blue have successfully clinched the ODI series by a 2-0 margin.

Harmanpreet Kaur, the player of the match

For her impeccable innings of 103 runs in just 88 balls, handed her the trophy of Player of the Game

“I think it’s a great achievement for women’s cricket to have nearly 650 runs in the game. South Africa played really well. I think while batting, we were up to the mark. Initially, when the ball was moving, both the openers didn’t throw their wickets. It made it easier later. We made some errors while bowling; we didn’t bowl according to the field. I know it’s a batting track; it’s not easy to bowl.

But if we bowl again on this kind of track, we need to see what we need to do. Actually, in the batters’ camp, all the batters bowled. Smriti asked me to tell Amol that she’s a great bowler. I think that camp helped us a lot. Shafali also did well with the ball. Good to see Smriti get the wicket. I think [our strike bowler] is always Deepti”. Harmanpreet Said
