India’s match against South Africa was abandoned due to heavy rain ahead of the summit clash of their Women’s T20I tri-series. The match, which has already sealed its place in Thursday’s final, was like a dress rehearsal for both the teams. But with India four wickets without loss in two overs of play, the match had to be stopped due to rain and could not be resumed. Jemimah Rodrigues opened the scoring for India with a boundary off Nonkululeko Mlaba, while Smriti Mandhana was yet to open her account after giving Shabnim Ismail a maiden over. Shabnam made a comeback after missing the first three matches of the series.
Rain also affected the return of India’s seam-bowling all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar from September as Harmanpreet Kaur named her after the skipper opted to bat.
India, unbeaten in three matches, will take on West Indies in their final group league match here on Monday. Windies have lost all their three matches.
Brief Scores India Women 4/0; 2 overs vs South Africa Women. No result.
