The India Women came back in scintillating fashion and beat the South Africa Women by 9 wickets in the second ODI to level the 5-match ODI series 1-1. The Women in Blue played what can be labelled as a ‘perfect match’ to steamroll the Sune Luus-led side in the second rubber.
The South African batting lineup wilted as pace bowling legend Jhulan Goswami and Rajeshwari Gayakwad combined to pick up 7 wickets. In fact, apart from Lara Goodall and skipper Sune Luus, no batswoman from the South African camp could even cross the 20-run mark in the second ODI.
For the hosts, Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut combined to put on a scintillating undefeated partnership of 138 runs for the second wicket. While Mandhana scored a marauding 64 ball 80*, Raut helped herself to 62* off 89 deliveries as the India Women romped home with ease. Both sides will be looking to take a 2-1 lead when they clash in the third ODI on 12th March 2021.
Pitch and Conditions
The first two ODIs of the series stand witness to the fact that the batters who bide their time on this surface will emerge successful. The bowlers will be kept interested on this surface as well. From the way the first 2 ODIs have played out, both the teams will be looking to chase on this surface.
