Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: The weather is expected to be clear with the maximum expected temperature 21°C during the match.
Pitch Condition: In the previous match on this ground, India Shattered many records with Deepti Sharma and her opening partner Poonam Raut scored 188 and 109 runs respectively to guide India Women to mammoth 358 runs. These two feasted on some very ordinary bowling by Ireland Women.
However, with both team boasting of some quality bowlers, a score of 250 can be considered as par score. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first to exploit some early swing.
- Jhulan Goswami is expected to be back for this clash after being rested for two matches.
- Indian team has been rotating their spinners so far. They are expected to bring in Poonam Yadav in place of Rajeshwari Gayakwad.
South Africa Women:
- There is no clarity as to why they have not played Ayabonga Khaka so far. If she is fit, this is an important match to bring her in place of Moseline Daniels.
- They rested Laura Wolvaardt in the last match and she is expected to be back in the playing XI in place of Andrie Steyn.
- Rest of the squad is expected to remain same.
