Marizanne Kapp31612.00140010
0.5 to M Raj, caught behind! And the in-form batsman is out in the first over. Raj came into this match on the back of four successive fifties. Here, she's out for a duck, fooled by the first awayswinger in the over. It's pitched up. It draws an aggressive response, but the on-the-up drive ends up in the wicketkeeper's gloves. 0/1
Shabnim Ismail3.503057.8294010
11.2 to H Kaur, edged and taken. That's good bowling. Harmanpreet was opening up and she gets her to push forward to an awayswinger at the fifth-stump channel. Finds a thick outside edge and it's an easy catch for the keeper. Top innings from the Indian captain. 93/3
11.4 to JI Rodrigues, out! There goes Rodrigues. And it's another fuller delivery that's done the trick. Much-needed respite for South Africa. Rodrigues can't control her drive and flays it uppishly straight into the hands of cover. 94/4
13.5 to AA Patil, what a catch! Sune Luus with a very, very good catch. Patil tries to heave this fuller one but it's too full and she can't get underneath that. Luus runs to her right from mid-on and has to cover decent ground. Judges it to perfection and gets down to her right as he completes the catch. 108/5
17.3 to Poonam Yadav, short, and gloved to the keeper! Career-best figures for Ismail right there. Digs it back of a length and zips off the surface. The batsman can't get out of the ball's way as she tries to attempt a pull. Takes a bit off her hand, and into the keeper's safe hands.. 132/9
17.5 to P Vastrakar, that's five for Ismail! India are all out for 133. Short outside off, and she tries to pull. Vastrakar's in no position to play at that, and it's top edged to mid off. Wonderful bowling to the tail end. India lose their last five wickets for nine runs.. 133/10
Moseline Daniels2023111.5045000
15.4 to V Krishnamurthy, bowled her! Off and middle stumps have been pegged back. A really full delivery that dips on her, and she comes down the ground. Can't get underneath it and it's right on target which means it crashes into the stumps. 124/6
Chloe Tryon1012012.0021100
Raisibe Ntozakhe302608.6663100
Dane van Niekerk201618.0041100
7.2 to S Mandhana, wrong shot selection. Perhaps she slightly misjudged the trajectory. It was short, yes, but the flattish trajectory means the ball doesn't really come on to her and she has to use her shoulder to muscle it over the in-field. Just not enough for it to carry over deep midwicket. 55/2
Masabata Klaas302026.6652000
16.1 to T Bhatia, hit well, but straight down cow corner's throat! Full ball and she's down on one knee to slog it towards the leg side. But it's off the bottom of the bat. Doesn't have the distance and that's one more down for India. 125/7
16.3 to S Pandey, edged! That's one more wicket. Full outside off once again and Pandey drives down the wrong line. Takes the outside edge, and pocketed by the keeper.. 127/8

Pooja Vastrakar412125.25164010
2.5 to L Lee, there's the first wicket! Lee wasn't looking comfortable today, and India will be mighty pleased that she's on her way back. Full outside off and she chased after it. Tries to send it for a six over long off, but can't get the distance. Taken in the deep by Patil. 12/1
16.4 to S Luus, taken at cover. A slower full ball that Luus backs herself to clear the in-field. Lack of pace means it doesn't come on and she skews it in the air off the splice and cover moves slightly to her right to snaffle it. Set batsman gone, India hanging in there. 111/4
Shikha Pandey3030010.0034000
Rajeshwari Gayakwad402015.00102000
5.5 to D van Niekerk, oh, she's thrown it away but lovely bowling by Gayakwad as well. That she skipped down the track was only down to the loads of generous flight on this delivery. Still with her team well on course, got to question the intent of such a shot. Charges down the track and ends up swinging hopefully as it's on a length and spins away leaving the keeper to pull off a simple stumping. Nowhere full enough for her to be able to get to the pitch of that one. 34/2
Anuja Patil4044111.0034200
18.3 to CL Tryon, goes for the glorious finish and charges down the track to a length ball. Doesn't get to the pitch and swings wildly to make no contact and get stumped. But it's a wicket too late for India. SA three away from their first win of the series. 131/5
Poonam Yadav401914.7581000
13.6 to M du Preez, flighted outside off, and du Preez advances down the ground and launches it straight over. This time Veda Krishnamurthy runs to her left and gets under it perfectly to snaffle it. Dropped a similar chance the last time around but not now. 84/3
