After 50 overs,South Africa Women 275/7 ( Mignon du Preez 52 , Shabnim Ismail 2)

50: FOUR! South Africa win by three wickets, and that’s the knockout blow to Team India! Du Preez guides her team home, hitting the winning boundary! SA 278/7

Global Tech News Daily

14:03 (IST)

49.5: ONE! Ismail collects a quick single, bringing du Preez on strike for the final ball! Expect all the fielders to converge around the batter. SA 274/7; need 1 off 1

Global Tech News Daily

14:00 (IST)

49.4: No-ball! Du Preez (51) perishes in the penultimate ball of the chase, holing out to Harmanpreet Kaur at long on! Boy is Deepti elated after that dismissal! Only for the umpire to signal no-ball, and Deepti’s found to have overstepped in the crucial delivery. SA 273/7; need 2 off 2

13:57 (IST)

49.4: ONE! Ismail runs the ball down the ground towards long off and brings du Preez back on strike. SA 272/7; need 3 off 2

13:55 (IST)

49.3: ONE! Du Preez gets off the strike right away after tapping the ball towards square leg. SA 271/7; need 4 off 3

13:53 (IST)

49.2: RUN OUT! Chetty falls short of the non-striker’s end after responding to du Preez’ call for a 2nd! She departs for 7. India still in the game! Du Preez also brings up her fifty! SA 270/7; need 5 off 4

13:51 (IST)

49.1: ONE! Chetty taps the ball towards square leg to bring du Preez on  strike! SA 269/6; need 6 off 5

13:50 (IST)

Deepti Sharma to bowl the final over. We’ll go ball-by-ball now!

13:49 (IST)

After 49 overs,South Africa Women 268/6 ( Mignon du Preez 49 , Trisha Chetty (W) 6)

Single collected off each of the first three balls of this over. Du Preez smashes the ball down the ground, and would’ve collected a boundary had it not been for Mandhana’s heroic effort running to her left from long on. Single off the fifth. Chetty keeps the strike with a single off the last ball. SA need 7 off 6!

13:47 (IST)

Rajeshwari Gayakwad to bowl the penultimate over of the chase. Will du Preez and Chetty look to take this into the final over, or finish things off in style in the next six balls?

13:45 (IST)

After 48 overs,South Africa Women 261/6 ( Mignon du Preez 45 , Trisha Chetty (W) 3)

Single collected off each delivery of the over — a stumping chance went begging in the first ball, with new batter Trisha Chetty also making it to the striker’s end in time to survive the direct hit. SA need 14 off 12 with four wickets in hand. Should be a walk in the park with du Preez around. Dismiss her, though, and things could get REAL interesting.

13:42 (IST)

After 47 overs,South Africa Women 255/6 ( Mignon du Preez 42 , Trisha Chetty (W) 0)

Tryon collects back-to-back fours with South Africa collecting four boundaries in as many balls now, at the start of Gayakwad’s penultimate over. She goes inside out over extra cover in the first ball and follows it up with a powerful sweep behind square. Single off each of the next two balls as South Africa breach the 250 mark. Tryon collects a third boundary for herself in the penultimate ball, drilling a full toss down the ground, a rubbish delivery at this stage. The over ends on a happy note for the left-arm spinner though, as Tryon ends up chipping the ball back to the bowler for a simple catch to depart for 17. 14 runs and a wicket from the over with South Africa needing 20 off 18 with four wickets in hand.

13:40 (IST)

OUT! Rajeshwari Gayakwad removes Chloe Tryon after conceding three boundaries to the all-rounder in the first five balls of her penultimate over. Tryon was perhaps looking to retain the strike with a single, but ended up chipping the ball back to the bowler. SA 255/6

Tryon c and b Gayakwad 17(9)

13:35 (IST)

After 46 overs,South Africa Women 241/5 ( Mignon du Preez 41 , Chloe Tryon 4)

Pooja Vastrakar returns. New batter Chloe Tryon, who got off the mark with a single in the previous over, collects a brace in the first delivery and gets off strike with a single two balls later. Du Preez meanwhile, keeps SA in the hunt with back-to-back boundaries off the last two balls, leaving SA needing 34 in the last four overs with five wickets in hand.

13:30 (IST)

After 45 overs,South Africa Women 230/5 ( Mignon du Preez 33 , Chloe Tryon 1)

DROPPED! Mandhana puts down a sitter at long on after Du Preez heaves the ball down the ground looking to boost her team’s hopes with a maximum. India though, don’t have to wait long to break the stand as some sharp work by Kaur at point results in Kapp getting run out in the penultimate delivery. Four runs and a wicket from the over, with SA needing 45 from 30 with five wickets in hand.

13:27 (IST)

OUT! Mandhana may have dropped du Preez a couple of deliveries earlier, but India manage to break the partnership soon after with Marizanne Kapp run out at the striker’s end while pushing for a risky single. SA 229/5; need 46 off 31

Kapp run out (Kaur/Ghosh) 32(30)

13:23 (IST)

After 44 overs,South Africa Women 226/4 ( Mignon du Preez 32 , Marizanne Kapp 30)

FOUR! A much-needed boundary for the South Africa, one that should bring their required run-rate down a couple of notches. The fielder at backward point fails to stop the ball despite putting in a slide and there’s no protection at the boundary in that direction. Single off each of the next two. Kapp collects a brace off the fifth followed by a single off the last ball to keep the strike. Nine from the over. SA need 49 off 36. Current partnership’s worth 44 and that certainly is an advantage for the Proteas.

13:19 (IST)

After 43 overs,South Africa Women 217/4 ( Mignon du Preez 31 , Marizanne Kapp 22)

Single off each of the first four deliveries of Kaur’s eighth over, followed by a dot. Du Preez works the ball towards deep midwicket after dancing down the track, pushing for a second. Kapp might have been in trouble at the other end, but was ultimately saved by the awkward bounce at the non-striker’s end. Six from the over. SA need 58 off 42.

13:16 (IST)

After 42 overs,South Africa Women 211/4 ( Mignon du Preez 27 , Marizanne Kapp 20)

Rana returns in Deepti’s place. Du Preez and Kapp nick a single off each ball barring the sixth. The Indian spinners are doing well to deny the Proteas boundaries at this stage. Five from the over. South Africa need 64 off 48.

13:11 (IST)

After 41 overs,South Africa Women 206/4 ( Mignon du Preez 24 , Marizanne Kapp 18)

Kaur continues. Single collected off each of the first two balls, bringing up the 200 for the Proteas, before Kapp collects her second boundary with a firm cut, aided by a misfield at point. Two singles collected in the last three balls. South Africa need 69 off 54.

13:09 (IST)

After 40 overs,South Africa Women 198/4 ( Mignon du Preez 22 , Marizanne Kapp 12)

Deepti bowls out the final over of the second powerplay, conceding just three singles from it with the required rate now touching the seven-and-a-half mark. South Africa need 77 in the last 10 overs. What will give the Proteas camp confidence will be the presence of two match-winners in Du Preez and Kapp at the centre, both more than capable of guiding the team home. The Indians, on the other hand, aren’t giving the batters any room for the big hits with the spinners especially bowling the tight lines.

13:05 (IST)

After 39 overs,South Africa Women 195/4 ( Mignon du Preez 21 , Marizanne Kapp 10)

FOUR! Kapp gives the Indians a reminder of the kind of form that she’s in at the moment as she crunches the ball past extra cover to collect her first boundary of the innings. Follows it up with a brace three balls later and a single. Seven from the over. SA need 80 off 66 with six wickets in hand.

13:02 (IST)

After 38 overs,South Africa Women 188/4 ( Mignon du Preez 21 , Marizanne Kapp 3)

Deepti Sharma replaces Sneh Rana. Three singles collected in the first four deliveries before du Preez flicks the ball through the midwicket region, coming back for a second. Five from the over.

12:59 (IST)

After 37 overs,South Africa Women 183/4 ( Mignon du Preez 18 , Marizanne Kapp 1)

Another superb over from Harmanpreet Kaur as her golden arm continues to keep India in the hunt for a semi-final spot, the vice-captain trapping Luus LBW in the first ball. Just one from the over along with the wicket. Marizanne Kapp joins du Preez at the centre.

12:58 (IST)

OUT! What a review by the Indians! An LBW appeal against skipper Luus is turned down by the umpire, and the Indians decide to take this upstairs. Luus had lunged forward and was hit on the knee roll. Impact is along the off stump, and the ball was found to be hitting leg, leading to South Africa losing their fourth wicket. SA 182/4

Luus LBW Kaur 22(27)

12:55 (IST)

After 36 overs,South Africa Women 182/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 22 , Mignon du Preez 18)

Rana gets another over in her quota, conceding five off her eighth with du Preez collecting two doubles in the last three balls. SA need 93 off 84.

12:46 (IST)

After 35 overs,South Africa Women 177/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 21 , Mignon du Preez 14)

Single collected off each delivery of this over barring the fourth, as Luus and du Preez continue to rotate the strike between themselves and keep the asking rate under check. South Africa need less than 100 to win now, the equation being 98 off 90 balls with seven wickets in hand.

12:43 (IST)

After 34 overs,South Africa Women 172/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 18 , Mignon du Preez 12)

Rana continues after the drinks break. Starts off with a dot, with a single collected off each of the remaining deliveries. Five from the over.

12:38 (IST)

After 33 overs,South Africa Women 167/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 15 , Mignon du Preez 10)

Meghna Singh returns, replacing Gayakwad. Three singles conceded in the first four deliveries. Meghna concedes a wide down the leg side in the penultimate ball, with Ghosh needlessly throwing the ball to cover to allow an extra run to be collected. Five from the over. Time for the players to have a drink.

12:33 (IST)

After 32 overs,South Africa Women 162/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 14 , Mignon du Preez 8)

Five from Kaur’s fourth over including a double in the third delivery. Both Luus and du Preez are in good nick with the bat at the moment; Luus has struck three half-centuries so far in the tournament while du Preez struck an unbeaten 38 against the West Indians before the match got abandoned due to rain. The pair can bring South Africa back in contention with a solid partnership, and let’s not forget, Marizanne Kapp will be coming in next.

12:29 (IST)

After 31 overs,South Africa Women 157/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 11 , Mignon du Preez 6)

Four singles from Gayakwad’s sixth over with skipper Luus moving to double figures in this over.

12:28 (IST)

After 30 overs,South Africa Women 153/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 9 , Mignon du Preez 4)

Kaur continues, conceding five in her third over including a brace to du Preez in the third delivery. Meanwhile she’s opened her account in the tournament as far as the wickets column is concerned. South Africa need another 122 to win from 120 balls with seven wickets in hand.

12:26 (IST)

After 29 overs,South Africa Women 148/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 7 , Mignon du Preez 1)

Tidy over from Gayakwad with just three singles coming from it. The left-arm spinner’s back to doing what she does best — choke the flow of runs and build dot-ball pressure. With two new batters at the crease, this is a golden chance for the Indians to seize control and work towards a victory.

12:20 (IST)

After 28 overs,South Africa Women 145/3 ( Sune Luus (C) 5 , Mignon du Preez 0)

Skipper Sune Luus gets off the mark with a boundary in the second delivery, sweeping towards fine leg. Kaur though, nets the big fish in the penultimate ball, breaching Wolvaardt’s defence and rattling the stumps as the in-form opener departs for 80. Six runs and a wicket from the over. Team India are back in the hunt and how!

12:18 (IST)

OUT! One wicket leads to another, and this time it’s Harmanpreet Kaur who gets rid of the dangerous Laura Wolvaardt, who is clean bowled for 80! SA 145/3

 

Wolvaardt b Kaur 80(79)

12:16 (IST)

After 27 overs,South Africa Women 139/2 ( Laura Wolvaardt 79 , Sune Luus (C) 0)

Excellent over from Gayakwad. Goodall nearly perishes in the first ball after chipping the ball over midwicket, but is stumped in the last delivery as she misses out on her half-century by just one run. Two runs and a wicket from the over, with the left-arm spinner getting the much-needed breakthrough for the Indians.

12:14 (IST)

OUT! Rajeshwari Gayakwad gets the breakthrough, and Lara Goodall will be gutted to have missed out on her half-century by a whisker! Dances down the track looking to push the ball past the bowler, only for the ball to sneak in through her defence. Ghosh whips the bails off in a flash. SA 139/2

Goodall st Ghosh b Gayakwad 49(69)

12:11 (IST)

After 26 overs,South Africa Women 137/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 78 , Lara Goodall 48)

Mitali turns to Harmanpreet now with India starting to get desperate for a breakthrough at this stage. Four singles from the over, with Goodall two short of her half-century at the end of this over.

12:06 (IST)

After 25 overs,South Africa Women 133/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 76 , Lara Goodall 46)

Three singles collected in the first four deliveries of the over before Goodall pushes for a second after running the ball down the ground, coming back for a brace. South Africa cruising towards the target at the halfway stage of the innings with two set batters at the crease and the partnership worth 119 at the moment.

12:04 (IST)

After 24 overs,South Africa Women 128/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 74 , Lara Goodall 43)

Wolvaardt and Goodall continue to rotate the strike between themselves through singles, with four of them coming in Sharma’s sixth over of the day.

12:04 (IST)

After 23 overs,South Africa Women 124/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 72 , Lara Goodall 41)

Tidy over from Rana with three singles coming off it. Goodall, meanwhile, is batting in the forties with Wolvaardt on 72 and eyeing her first ton of the World Cup already.

12:01 (IST)

After 22 overs,South Africa Women 121/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 71 , Lara Goodall 39)

Deepti Sharma returns to the attack in place of Vastrakar. Goodall collects a single first ball, before Wolvaardt smacks the ball through the midwicket region to collect her 11th boundary. Single off each of the last two balls. Seven from the over.

11:57 (IST)

After 21 overs,South Africa Women 114/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 66 , Lara Goodall 37)

The boundaries continue to flow for the Proteas as Goodall brings out the reverse sweep at the start of this over, beating the backward point fielder. Three singles collected in the remaining five deliveries.

11:49 (IST)

After 20 overs,South Africa Women 107/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 65 , Lara Goodall 31)

Wolvaardt pushes for a risky second after pulling towards deep midwicket at the start of this over. Follows it up with a thick outside edge through the vacant slip cordon, the ball racing away to the third man fence for a four. Wolvaardt collects a second boundary in the over with a superb cover drive off the last ball. 12 from the over. South Africa go past the 100-mark in this over, needing another 168 to win from 180 balls with nine wickets in hand.

11:46 (IST)

After 19 overs,South Africa Women 95/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 53 , Lara Goodall 31)

Four singles collected in Rana’s third over of the day, with Goodall moving into the 30s in the process.

11:45 (IST)

After 18 overs,South Africa Women 91/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 51 , Lara Goodall 29)

Vastrakar continues, and collects the first maiden of the innings, with just a leg bye being added to the South African total in this over.

11:42 (IST)

After 17 overs,South Africa Women 90/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 51 , Lara Goodall 29)

Rana replaces Gayakwad on the other side of the drinks break, conceding four from her second over including a wide in the fourth delivery.

11:34 (IST)

After 16 overs,South Africa Women 86/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 50 , Lara Goodall 27)

FOUR! The boundaries continue to flow for the Proteas with Goodall flicking a length ball from Vastrakar past square leg at the start of the 16th over. Collects a single three balls later. Five from the over. Drinks called on the field at the end of this over.

11:33 (IST)

After 15 overs,South Africa Women 81/1 ( Laura Wolvaardt 50 , Lara Goodall 22)

Single to Wolvaardt first ball followed by a swing-and-miss for Goodall in the second. Goodall gets off strike with a single off the third ball, running the ball down the ground. Wolvaardt brings up her fifth half-century of the ongoing World Cup with a boundary off the final delivery. Six from the over.

11:29 (IST)

FOUR! What a way for Laura Wolvaardt to bring up her half-century — her 26th overall in ODIs and her fifth of the ongoing tournament. Wolvaardt gets on the backfoot and cuts the ball behind square to bring up the milestone. What a tournament she’s having so far! SA 81/1

India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup 2022 match LIVE updates: Single collected off each of the first three balls of this over. Du Preez smashes the ball down the ground, and would’ve collected a boundary had it not been for Mandhana’s heroic effort running to her left from long on. Single off the fifth. Chetty keeps the strike with a single off the last ball. SA need 7 off 6!

Preview: Their destiny in their own hands, India will go all out to brush off an inconsistent run and seal a semi-final berth in the Women’s World Cup when they play South Africa in a do-or-die match on Sunday.

So far in the tournament, the 2017 runners-up haven’t fired in the manner they would have like to.

With three wins and as many losses India, who are in the fifth spot with six points in the overall standings, find themselves in a must-win situation heading into their final league match.

Their semi-final chances were dented when West Indies, who are also vying to advance to the knockout stage, and South Africa’s match was washed out with the former moving up to seven points earlier this week.

A win on Sunday will see India advance to the last four, and a point from the game will also work for the Mithali Raj-led side, as they have a superior NRR (+0.768) than West Indies (-0.890).

In case India lose to South Africa, their only hope of advancing to the semi-finals will be if England, who have a better NRR (+0.778), also lose their last league stage match to Bangladesh and finish on a lower NRR. That seems unlikely, though.

But the ‘Women in Blue’ would want to hold all the cards and also get a two-match winning momentum going into the semi-finals.

India’s inconsistent batting came to the fore yet again in an otherwise 110-run win against Bangladesh, and skipper Raj would be keen to improve on that aspect against a challenging South African bowling attack.

The bowling department, which has looked lacklustre at times, put up a much-improved show against Bangladesh. The move to bring in spinner Poonam Yadav in place of pacer Meghna Singh paid off for India.

However, it remains to be seen if India persist with two pacers, three spinners strategy at the Hagley Oval, which has a balanced track where the bowlers will have to be disciplined with their line and lengths.

South Africa, on the other hand, have already qualified for the semi-finals. They sit second in the overall standings, behind Australia.
