The T20I series between South Africa Women and Pakistan Women has been dominated by the chasing teams as they won all the four games played so far. The 5-match series is now levelled at 2-2 as the two teams won alternative matches. The hosts chased down 173 in the 4th T20I to level the series which is their biggest chase in Women’s T20I.
It was Pakistan Women who recorded their biggest T20I chase in this format during the 3rd T20I. They bounced back from 3/3 to scale down 139 in a final over thriller. The Proteas Women interestingly rested their premier all-rounder Marizanne Kapp in the last two matches. The Suné Luus-led team still managed to put on some good performances in her absence.
The 5th and final game of the 5-match T20I series between South Africa Women and Pakistan Women will be hosted by the Willowmoore Park in Benoni.
The match starts at 1:00 PM local time (11:00 AM GMT) (4:30 PM IST).
