Top Picks:

Jemimah Rodrigues managed to score a fifty against the South Africans but wasnt able to show consistency during the course of the series. She has over 200 runs in 2019 and looks good for more.

The Indian duo of Poonam Yadav and Ekta Bisht is a must have in the side while Afy Fletcher should round the fantasy team for this game.

Captaincy Picks:

1. Jemimah Rodrigues
2. Deepthi Sharma
3. Stafanie Taylor
