On Friday, July 5, India Women will lock horns against South Africa women at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai at 7:00 pm IST. It will be the first match of the three scheduled T20Is. 

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side won the Test & ODI series are now looking to seal the T20I series as well. This article will shed light on the preview, pitch report, and playing XI of the upcoming match.

Team Preview


The Indian women side are high on confidence not because they won the Test & ODI series against the Proteas but because they have also won the last five T20I matches, while South Africa, on the other hand, have lost three of their last five matches. 

Smriti Mandhana is in the form of her life and all eyes would be on her to create an impact against a great South Africa bowling line-up. She also averages 31 in her last 10 T20Is.

Further, skipper Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Shafali Verma would look to play the power-hitting role. In the bowling, eyes would be on Renuka Singh, who has made a name for himself to pick wickets in the first over. 

Also, Shreyanka Patil would be dangerous on a surface like Chepauk where spinners get assistance. 

South Africa 

India must be wary of what South Africa skipper Laura Wolvaardt brings to table as she averages 64 in her last eight T20Is. Also, in the batting, Marizanne Kapp is another player who can trouble the Indian bowlers with her all-round performance and she is aware of the Indian conditions as well because of WPL.

In the bowling, Masabata Klaas, Tumi Sekhukhune, and Nonkululeko Mlaba are likely to feature in the playing XI.

IND W vs SA W: Chepauk Stadium Pitch Report

As usual, the spinners will be favoured at the Chepauk Stadium. The ball would come a fraction slow onto the bat making it difficult for the batters to post big scores on the bat. It is to be seen whether due will arrive at night or not. Nonetheless, the team which wins the toss would look to field first.
