After 11 overs,India Women 74/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 22 , Shafali Verma 47)

Verma is down on the ground as the physio takes a look at her knee before the start of this over. Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Chloe Tryon is introduced into the attack in this over. Six from the over, including a boundary to Mandhana in the fourth ball off an inside out lofted drive over extra cover. Mandhana moves into the 20s in this over.

After 10 overs,India Women 68/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 17 , Shafali Verma 46)

Global Tech News Daily

Change of ends for Ismail as she replaces Kapp. Mandhana nearly offers the seamer a catch off her own bowling after chipping the ball back in her direction. Mandhana gets off strike with a single off the second. Verma exposes all three stumps and then some more when going for a scoop in the third ball, though collecting only a brace in the end. She carves the ball behind point next ball for a brace, before collecting a single off the fifth. India collect 68 in the powerplay, their best display this World Cup.

07:08 (IST)

After 9 overs,India Women 62/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 16 , Shafali Verma 41)

Verma collects a brace off the first ball to bring up the fifty stand with Mandhana, before getting off strike with a single two balls later. Wide down the leg side in the fourth ball, followed by a second boundary of the innings to Mandhana with a drive past cover point. Verma ends the over with a boundary, smacking the ball straight down the ground. 13 from the over.

07:06 (IST)

Fifty partnership up between Verma and Mandhana for the opening wicket, the former going for an inside-out aerial drive over extra cover, the ball landing just outside the circle giving Verma enough time to come back for a second. IND 51/0

07:04 (IST)

After 8 overs,India Women 49/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 11 , Shafali Verma 34)

Mandhana decides to join the boundary-scoring act with a lovely pull through the midwicket region after Kapp decides to shorten her length a little. The partnership is one short of the fifty mark now.

07:01 (IST)

After 7 overs,India Women 45/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 7 , Shafali Verma 34)

Verma moves to 30 with a brace off the second ball after edging the ball towards third man, before collecting another boundary for herself thanks to some lovely wrist work, guiding the ball past extra cover.

07:00 (IST)

After 6 overs,India Women 39/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 7 , Shafali Verma 28)

Kapp continues to keep things tidy from her end, conceded three from her third over including a couple of singles. She’s in a good rhythm at the moment, and both Verma and Mandhana will perhaps be a tad cautious while facing her.

06:53 (IST)

After 5 overs,India Women 36/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 6 , Shafali Verma 27)

Ayabonga Khaka replaces Shabnim Ismail. Verma gets a thick leading edge in the second delivery, the ball landing safely beyond point’s reach. She collects another boundary for herself two balls later making room and punching the length ball through cover. Four from the over.

06:50 (IST)

After 4 overs,India Women 32/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 6 , Shafali Verma 23)

A much better over for the Proteas with just two coming from it, with Mandhana and Verma collecting a single each.

06:47 (IST)

After 3 overs,India Women 30/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 5 , Shafali Verma 22)

Verma dismantles Ismail in this over with a hat-trick of fours, targetting all parts of the ground and using the extra pace from the fastest bowler in the women’s game to good effect. Verma follows it up with a couple of doubles, the second one coming in the free hit after Ismail is found to have overstepped. 17 runs from the over. India 30 for no loss after 3 overs.

06:41 (IST)

After 2 overs,India Women 13/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 5 , Shafali Verma 6)

Marizanne Kapp bowls from the other end. Meanwhile, Smriti Mandhana decides to help herself to the boundary, pushing a low full toss through the covers in the third delivery. Five from the over, including a wide.

06:37 (IST)

After 1 over,India Women 8/0 ( Smriti Mandhana 1 , Shafali Verma 6)

Mandhana gets off the mark with a single off the second delivery before Verma collects the first boundary two balls later with a well-timed push past extra cover. Wide conceded in the last ball, followed by a brace to Verma. Eight from the first over bowled by Ismail.

06:35 (IST)

The national anthems have been sung and the two teams make their respective gestures against racism before the first ball is bowled. Smriti Mandhana opens alongside Shafali Verma as usual, with Shabnim Ismail bowling the first over.

06:31 (IST)

This is the first time Jhulan Goswami’s not playing a World Cup game for Team India. She had made 34 appearances on the trot across five editions before this game. Apparently it’s a case of a side strain for the senior seamer.

06:12 (IST)

Sanjay Manjrekar and WV Raman assess the conditions at Hagley Oval:

SM: It’s just a fantastic ground. The weather seems to complement it. The perfect blend of conditions here. The same pitch as yesterday, so nothing changes. Side boundaries are identical, the straight boundaries are pretty long.

WVR: The surface is dry, which means there will be no turn for the spinners. No lateral movement for the seamers as well. Batters have to get on top of the bounce if they are to play their shots.

06:10 (IST)

Teams:

India: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Mithali Raj (c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh (wk), Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, Deepti Sharma, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad

South Africa: Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Lara Goodall, Sune Luus (c), Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, Chloe Tryon, Trisha Chetty (wk), Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Ayabonga Khaka

06:07 (IST)

Sune Luus: Probably would’ve batted first, but don’t think the wicket will change too much. For us today, it’s just about hitting out straps and taking that confidence into the semi-final. We’ve got two changes — Lara Goodall comes in for Tazmin Brits and Masabata Klaas comes in for Tumi Sekhukhune.

06:06 (IST)

Mithali Raj: Yesterday’s game was played on the same track. Spinners might get help in the second innings. Good wicket to bat when the sun is out. It’s all about holding our nerves, being composed, play our best cricket today. We have two changes — Meghna Singh in place of Jhulan Goswami and Deepti Sharma in place of Poonam Yadav.

06:05 (IST)

TOSS: India win the toss and opt to bat

ENG off to slow start against BAN

Heather Knight and Co have lost four top-order wickets with a little over 100 on the board after opting to bat against Bangladesh in their final league game of the tournament at the Basin Reserve in Wellington. Jahanara Alam and Salma Khatun struck early for the Bangladeshis before a solid third-wicket stand between Tammy Beaumont and Nat Sciver rescued the defending champions.

Wondering how Team India can still make it to the semi-finals of the 2022 ICC Women’s World Cup?

Well the good news is that the Women in Blue are in contention for a place in the knockouts along with England and the West Indies, with Australia and South Africa having already confirmed their places.

We take a look at all the possible scenarios in this explainer

05:15 (IST)

A washout against South Africa will see India through to the semis thanks to their superior Net Run Rate (+0.768) compared to that of Windies (-0.885). But the Indians will be hoping for a victory by a sizeable margin that helps them finish third ahead of England, which will then lead to a match-up with South Africa in the semis.

However, beating a side that won four games in a row including against top sides such as England and New Zealand is easier said than done.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of the Women’s World Cup match between India and South Africa in Christchurch. Match starts at 6.30 am IST with the toss taking place at 6 am. Follow this space for all the live scores and updates.

India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup 2022 match LIVE updates: Verma is down on the ground as the physio takes a look at her knee before the start of this over. Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Chloe Tryon is introduced into the attack in this over. Six from the over, including a boundary to Mandhana in the fourth ball off an inside out lofted drive over extra cover. Mandhana moves into the 20s in this over.

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.
