In front of a vocal, sizeable crowd in Surat, India snuck home in nervy fashion to take a 1-0 series lead in their best of five series against South Africa. Unfortunately, rain had the full say second time around, completely washing out the second match.

In regards to the cricket, the Indians were well placed for a total larger than their eventual 130/8 in the opening T20I. They recovered from Lizelle Lee’s fast start to then choke the South African batswomen through spin. The starts for India, Mignon du Preez’ superb lone hand and shaky fielding were the themes of a tight first match. Who will take out the third T20I?

Key to an India win

Five of India’s top six reached double figures in the opening T20I. Only skipper Harmanpreet Kaur (43) made a score of note, which puts onus on the likes of the experienced Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues to set the best possible platform for the Indian middle order. Given that the South African made crucial fielding blunders under pressure in the first match, the Indians would be well advised to make the running and force South Africa to respond well.

However, it was a fine night out on the bowling front for India’s spinners. Expected to play a key role against non-Asian opposition on the slow, low Surat track, Radha Yadav, Harmanpreet Kaur, Poonam Yadav and player of the first match Deepti Sharma delivered, combining for eight of the 10 wickets to fall. Can they again build pressure on South Africa, forcing shots in the air and across the line?

Key to a South Africa win

The South Africans have to believe they can bounce back. They were right in the contest for much of the first T20I, with key fielding blunders and a loss of regular wickets at crucial times costing them dearly. Apart from the excellent Mignon du Preez, the South Africans were either too early into their shots or too quick to play across the line against the spinners. Good use of the feet, whilst looking to hit straight, will be the way to go. Can the likes of Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt and du Preez form the rock of South Africa’s batting?

But, there were positives with the ball for South Africa. Shabnim Ismail, a consistent performer, was wonderful once again in the first T20I. With India’s top order bar Shafali Verma containing plenty of experience, Ismail will again be key in making inroads up top, along with her ability to take wickets at the death. South Africa bowled quite well as a unit first time out, and will need to do so again to restrict the Indian lineup.

Possible Playing 11

15-year old Shafali Verma couldn’t score on her T20I debut. India should give her another chance, meaning Harleen Deol waits her turn. Also, Pooja Vastrakar might be lucky to keep her place after conceding 18 off her one over in the opening T20I.

India: 1. Shafali Verma, 2. Smriti Mandhana, 3. Jemimah Rodrigues, 4. Harmanpreet Kaur (c), 5. Deepti Sharma, 6. Veda Krishnamurthy, 7. Pooka Vastrakar, 8. Radha Yadav, 9. Taniya Bhatia (wk), 10. Shikha Pandey, 11. Poonam Yadav

On a pitch aiding spin, Nonkululeko Mlaba didn’t have the best debut. However, like India, South Africa should persist with the team that gave it a red-hot go in the first match.

South Africa: 1. Lizelle Lee (wk), 2. Tazmin Brits, 3. Laura Wolvaardt, 4. Nadine de Klerk, 5. Mignon du Preez, 6. Sune Luus (c), 7. Nondumiso Shangase, 8. Shabnim Ismail, 9. Ayabonda Khaka, 10. Tumi Sekhukhune, 11. Nonkululeko Mlaba

Pitch and Conditions

There is a chance of rain once again in Surat. In the first T20I, the pitch was quite low and slow, suiting spinners and seamers who bowled nice and straight.

Stats and Facts

  • India have won four of the past five completed matches vs South Africa.
  • Harmanpreet Kaur will play her 98th T20I match. She has 134 runs at an average of 33.50 in seven matches vs South Africa.

Match Prediction

South Africa had their moments in the first T20I and I expect them to have good moments in the second match, too. However, provided the weather allows for a full match, India should have enough to win.
