Sneh Rana bulldozes through South African line-up, takes 8-fer to help India Women enforce follow-on

The spinner took early wickets of Anneke Bosch and Laura Wolvaardt, making progress. Subsequently, he removed Marizanne Kapp on 74 runs to pile on more misery.

Sneh Rana achieved the second-best numbers ever by an Indian bowler in the Women’s Tests on Sunday. In the match against Laura Wolvaardt’s South Africa at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the off-spinner concluded with figures of 25.3-4-77-8. The record is still held by left-arm spinner Neetu David, who set a staggering 31.3-12-53-8 record against England in Jamshedpur in 1995.

India on top of their game

South Africa was under a great deal of pressure following India’s massive first-inning score of 603 for 6 (declared). Shafali Verma’s 205 gave the innings impetus after Smriti Mandhana’s 149 knock set the groundwork.

Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Richa Ghosh all scored quick half-centuries. Ghosh was dismissed on 86 by Nonkululeko Mlaba.
