South Africa Women were below par in the previous games, however, senior players did well occasionally. If South Africa have to beat this Indian team, other players will have to chip in with crucial contributions and support Laura Wolvaardt, Sune Luus and Marizanne Kapp

Laura Wolvaardt and Marizanne Kapp will be the key players. Wolvaardt scored a hundred in the ODIs as well as the Test match. Kapp also scored a hundred in the ODI series. Luus scored a hundred in the Test match. The three batters need to do the bulk of the scoring.

South Africa were no match to India in the previous games. This is because that the likes of Laura Wolvaardt and Marizanne Kapp did not get much support from other batters. If SA have to win, the team needs to come good and not just one or two players.
