In a do-or-die fixture, India Women will take on South Africa Women in the fourth match of the five-match ODI series on Friday, March 14. The all-important game for the hosts will be played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, in Lucknow.
The visitors won the third ODI by six runs via DLS method as rain interrupted the match towards the end on Friday. Earlier in the day, Proteas chose to bowl first and managed to restrict the hosts to 248. Smriti Mandhana stitched 25 runs, while the trio of Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma contributed with 36 runs each. However, it was Punam Raut’s sublime 77 with the aid of 11 boundaries that helped the cause.
