Mandhana remained not out on 48 off just 28 balls while Verma notched up a half-century.

Earlier in the day, Indian eves produced a stellar bowling performance to restrict South Africa to a below-par total of 112/7 in 20 overs. Rajeshwari Gayakwad was the pick of the bowlers as she scalped three wickets and ended with impressive figures of 3/9 in her quota of four overs.
