After a disheartening washout in the last game, the fans will be hoping to witness a full game of cricket in the third T20I between India Women and South Africa Women. The first fixture of the series was a riveting, close affair that saw the home side emerge as the victors to take a 1-0 lead going into the rest of the games. If rain permits, the Proteas would look to even the tie while their opponents attempt to notch another victory on home soil.

Yet again, the weather report doesn’t look promising at all and genuine fears persist that another washout could be on the cards.
The outfield is lightning quick but the surface will be slow with uncertain bounce that is sure to keep the batters on their toes.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues are the key batters in the top order whilst skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma can play the role of the aggressors in the middle. Radha Yadhav and Shikha Pandey will be potent threats with the bowl in hand.
Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Poonam Yadav, Deepti Sharma, Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia(w), Radha Yadav, Shikha Pandey
South Africa Women:
Lizelle Lee is a dependable presence behind the stumps and she is also capable of providing a blazing start to the innings with the willow. Shabnim Ismail is the pick of the bowlers and should grab a couple of wickets in this match.
Lizelle Lee(w), Tazmin Brits, Laura Wolvaardt, Nadine de Klerk, Mignon du Preez, Sune Luus(c), Nondumiso Shangase, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Tumi Sekhukhune
Smriti Mandhana and Mignon Du Preez are must-picks courtesy of their extraordinary batting talents. The duo are certain to bring a copious amount of points for your fantasy side. After her astounding displays in the opener, all-rounder Deepti Sharma is another player that you cannot afford to ignore.
