India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup 2022 highlights: India miss out on semi-final spot as SA win last-ball thriller

  • Mar 27, 2022 02:03 PM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: Du Preez completes the chase, India are knocked out

    South Africa have won the match by 3 wickets. This will be a tough one to swallow for India. Du Preez, the former South Africa captain, ends with an unbeaten 52 off 63. She flicks the a full ball through mid-wicket and roars in delight. The Indian shoulders sink. Jhulan Goswami walks out to shake hands while Mithali Raj leads her team mates off the field. This may have been the last time we saw these two legendary players in a World Cup. What a knock Mithali played today and what a hand by Harmanpreet in the last few overs and then throughout the South African chase with the ball and in the field. But it was not enough, and India finish fifth in the league stage.

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: Du Preez caught but it’s a no ball!

    Du Preez seemed to have holed out at long-on and the Indian players were running everywhere. But then the third umpire signals to the on-field counterpart that Deepti had overstepped and it’s a no-ball. The drama. 

    SA now need two to win off two

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: Fielders moving everywhere for India

    There is about 2 mins between the third and fourth ball of the last over as fielders move around everywhere. Despite all that planning, Ismail manages to take a single and they now need 3 to win off the last 2. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:54 PM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: GONE! 

    This game is not for the weak hearted. Du Preez hits it to long-on and wants two. She gets to 50 off the first run but Chetty cannot make her ground for the second and India get another wicket.

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: South Africa need 7 runs to win off six balls

    Deepti Sharma will bowl the last over. India are two overs ahead in the over rate and so take their own sweet time in setting up the field and finalising plans. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:47 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: 14 needed off the last two overs

    Mithali throws the ball back to Rajeshwari Gayakwad so she will finish her 10 overs. It looks like Harmanpreet Kaur might bowl the last. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:41 PM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: GONE! 

    This match continues to swing one way and another. Tryon smacks a third four off Gayakwad in the 47th over, and then hits it straight back to the bowler off the very next ball. What next? 

    Tryon c&b Gayakwad 17 (9), SA 255/6 off 47 overs, need 20 to win off 18 balls 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:38 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: Flurry of boundaries!

    After Du Preez ends the 46th with back to back fours, Tryon starts the 47th with two boundaries on the trot. That brings the equation down to 26 needed off 22. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:35 PM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: Another boundary

    Du Preez ends the 46th with back-to-back fours and South Africa now need 34 to win off 24. The former SA skipper moves to off stump early and flicks Vastrakar behind square. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:34 PM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: FOUR! 

    Du Preez sends Vastrakar down the ground for an important boundary off the penultimate ball of the 46th over bowled by Vastrakar. SA need 38 to win off 25.

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: OUT! Kapp is run out!

    Full ball on off from Gayakwad that is played to cover-point. As has been the case for the last few overs, the batters set off for a tight single, Harmanpreet runs accross, throws it underarm to the keeper who is swift to break the wickets. Kapp is well outside the crease as replays show and India get another. We have a thriller unfolding here.

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: DROPPED! Mandhana puts down a dolly!

    Du Preez completely miscues the shot off Gayakwad and the ball is going straight down the throat of Mandhana at long-on. But she drops it leading to collective sights around the Indian camp. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:24 PM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: SA put pressure back

    Kapp and Du Preez take runs at the smallest of chances and that has put all kinds of pressure on the Indian fielders. Need 49 to win to win off 36 balls. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:19 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: FOUR! Ordinary fielding from India

    Kapp slices Sneh Rana to backward point off the first ball of the 44th and the fielder is unable to stop it. The ball runs away for four. Not the kind of thing India can afford at the moment. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:17 PM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: South Africa 211-4 in 42 overs

    Five singles in that over and while the required rate has touched 8.00, the fact remains that India are wiping the ball vigorously with due increasingly becoming an issue. Additionally, South Africa still have a lot of firepower in their lineup so India have their work cut out here. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 01:08 PM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: Into the last 10 overs

    SA are 198/4, need 77 to win off 60 balls. South Africa continue to tick away the singles and doubles but the require run rate continues to creep up for them. They only need one big over here and the equation will shift their way again. For now, India have their noses ahead. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:55 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: OUT! Harmanpreet strikes again!

    Full ball from Harmanpreet that beats the flick from Sune Luus and India appeal. Umpire gives not out but India take the review. As it turns out, Harmanpreet got prodigious turn on it and the ball is hitting leg stump, after an impact that fell in front of off.

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: Sneh Rana receiving treatment

    Full toss from Rana for the second ball of the 36th over, Du Preez comes down the track and smacks it straight it back to her. Rana gets a hand on it to ensure it’s a dot ball but she has hurt herself in the process. The physio comes out and Rana pops a pill. Still seems to be strugglind she she prepares to bowl the next ball. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:33 PM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: SA are 162 for the loss of three wickets in 32 overs

    They need 113 runs to win off 108 balls. India still have a long way to go, Mignon du Preez and and Sune Luus are still a formidable pair and they still have Marizanne Kapp and Chloe Tryon left to come. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:17 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: GONE! Harmanpreet dismisses Wolvaardt!

    Can you believe it, Harmanpreet of all bowlers has dismissed Woolvardt. The South Africa has missed this one completely as she is beaten by the sharp spin. The ball just goes past the outside edge and takes the stumps. Harmanpreet is off to celebrate, she knows how big this wicket is and India have their tails up now. 

    Woolvardt b Harmanpreet 80 (79), South Africa 145/3 in 27.5 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:14 PM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: OUT! A wicket at last for India

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: Goodall gets it over midwicket

    Short over Gayakwad and Goodall manages to get the ball just over midwicket. A few Indian lights may have lit up there. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:07 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: Mithali brings on Harmanpreet

    The skipper is desperate for wickets now, conditions seem to be absolutely perfect for batting. Mithali ends up handing the ball to Harmanpreet, who is yet to bowl in this tournament. 

    South Africa 133/1 in 25 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 12:04 PM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: Dew coming in?

    It seems to go from bad to worse for India. The players can be seen wiping the ball with towels as Sneh Rana bowls the 25th over. As if it hasn’t been difficult enough for India to contain the flow of runs, let alone challenge these two batters, dew seems to be coming in to play as well. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:53 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: 100 partnership

    And it has come in just 99 balls. Wolvaardt is on 66 off 62 while Goodall is on 37 off 49. SA are 114/1 in 21 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:51 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: 20 overs gone, South Africa 107/1

    Wolvaardt finishes the 20th over with a four to move to 65 off 50. She had hit a boundary off the third ball of  that over to get South Africa past the 100-run mark. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:45 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: South Africa 95/1 in 19 overs

    Four singles in that over with absolutely no problems for South Africa and all these runs are hurting India. Goodall and Wolvaardt have put up 81 off 86 balls so far and put South Africa well on track in this chase. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:31 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: 50 for Wolvaardt

    She has hardly given the Indians any chance and has cruised to her half century in just 44 balls. For now, it’s looking all too easy for South Africa. They need 194 to win off 34 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:19 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: 12 overs gone, SA 67/1

    South Africa are cruising along at the moment and India are in a spot of bother now. The partnership between Goodall and Wolvaardt has gone past 50 and they are well on track of chasing this total down now. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:09 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: 50 for SA in 10 overs

    Wolvaardt pulls Sneh Rana for her sixth boundary to get South Africa to 50 off the last ball of the 10th over. She has powered them to a good start to this chase despite the fall of the early wicket.

  • Mar 27, 2022 11:05 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: Back to back fours!

    Laura Wolvaardt is putting on a show here. She first flicks Meghna Singh behind squre and then brings an exquisite cover drive for a second consecutive four. She is the highest run scorer of the tournament and India know they have to get her out as quickly as possible. 

    South Africa 43/1 in 9 overs 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:48 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: OUT! Brilliant from Harmanpreet

    That is a showstopper of a direct hit from Harmanpreet and, just as India did earlier in the day, South Africa lose their first wicket to a run out. Unlike India though, this was no mix-up and Harmanpreet had to get it absolutely spot on. It was a streaky run and the batters were challenging the fielder more than anything else but once the direct hit came, it was clear that Lee was well short of the crease. 

    Lizelle Lee run out (Harmanpreet Kaur) 6 (15), South Africa 14/1 off 4.4 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:46 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: FOUR!

    Wolvaardt with her first boundary of the match and she cuts it up and over the infield in the fifth over. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:39 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: Almost wicket off the first ball for Deepti Sharma

    Deepti bowls the second over and almost delivers off the very first ball. It was a ripper of a delivery that missed Wolvaardt’s outside edge and the off stump by a whisker. Just one run came off that over and that makes it 2/0 for South Africa off the first two overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:33 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: The players return

    Meghna Singh is bowling the first over to Lizanne Lee with Laura Wolvaardt at the other end. She starts off with a wide. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:28 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: England win by 100 runs

    It was all too comfortable in the end for the defending champions and that result means that India have to win this game to go through to the semi-finals. England have now jumped to third with eight points and a net run rate of +0.95. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:13 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: England on the cusp of a big win

    Bangladesh have been reduced to their last wicket going into the last five overs of the match and they are still over 100 runs away. It is safe to say that India have to win this match to go through to the semi-finals. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:02 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: India 274/7 in 50 overs

    India need to defend a target of 275 to reach the semi-finals. The last 10 overs certainly did not go the way India would have wanted and the South Africans were brilliant in how they pulled things back. Even then, this remains a formidable total and India will fancy their chances despite the absence of the incomporable Jhulan Goswami. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 10:00 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: GONE! Harmanpreet falls on 48

    Last over of the innings bowled by Khaka, Harmanpreet runs two off the second ball and then goes for an almighty swing off the third. She misses the ball completely and the ball crashes on to the stumps. 

    Harmanpreet b Khaka 48 (57), India 271/7 in 49.3 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:56 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: 2 successful reviews for Sneh Rana

    Well that is a strange sequence of events. Sneh Rana was given out twice for almost the same shot. She tried to pull Ismail and the ball went to the wicketkeeper. The umpire gave out for caught behind on both occassions and Sneh Rana looked quite surprised both times before reviewing and there was clear daylight between ball and bat. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:51 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: GONE! 

    Slow ball from Ismail and Richa Ghosh goes high up in the air. It looked Luus may have lost it in the sun but, she had it under her control all the time.

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:46 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: FOUR!

    A boundary at last. Kapp bowls it short gives Harmanpreet some width to work with and the Indian batter latches on to it. Much required boundary for India.   

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:46 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: India search for boundaries

    It hasn’t quite been the finish they would have hoped for as the Indians struggle with the South Africans taking the pace off and hardly providing any width. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:39 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: 250 up for India 

    India haven’t been able to get the kind of flow they would have wanted since the 40th over. Harmanpreet seemed to have holed out at deep midwicket but it fell just short of Tryon. The players ran a single to get to the mark. India are 250/5 in 46 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:32 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: OUT!

    Pooja Vastrakar chips it straight to cover and Ismail continues her comeback. She was taken apart by Shafali Verma in the early part of the match but has hardly conceded anything since the opener fell. This is her first wicket of the match. 

    Vastrakar c Luus b Ismail 3 (8), India 240/5 in 44.2 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:21 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: OUT! Mithali Raj falls

    It had to happen. Mithali goes for the big shots and finally finds a fielder. That ends a brilliant innings from the Indian captain and it is now upto Harmanpreet and the rest to get them to a good total. 

    Mithali c Tryon b Klaas 68 (84), India 234/4 in 42.3 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:10 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: India 223/3 in 40 overs

    10 overs to go and India will currently be looking at something beyond 300 as a good total. This seems like a good batting pitch and South Africa are a dangerous unit so India will want to take advantage of the conditions as much as possible. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 09:08 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: FOUR!

    Mithali Raj is not leaving any survivors today. Khaka doesn’t take the pace off for Mithali after doing that for Harmanpreet and the Indian skipper lofts her over mid-off. A single off the next ball moves Mithali to 66. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:59 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: India 204/3 in 37 overs

    Mithali ends that over with a four, her sixth of the innings. Tryon bowls it wide outside off and Mithali places it brilliantly between short third man and backward point. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:54 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: 50 for Mithali!

    64th ODI fifty for Mithali, 11th in World Cups. She tends to cope some criticism for her strike rate but this one has come in 69 balls. She now holds the record for being the youngest and the oldest player to score a half century for India in the World Cup. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:54 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: India 195/3 in 36 overs

    Mithali ends the 36th over with a tight single. She called for it as soon as she made contact with the ball and she reaches 49. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:41 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: OUT! Mandhana’s innings ends!

    A superb catch from vice-captain Chloe Tryon to end the partnership. Miscued from Mandhana and Tryon goes to her right before putting in a full dive to complete the catch. The partnership between Mandhana and Mithali ends on 80 and that catch is a tournament highlight right there. 

    Mandhana c Tryon b Klaas 71 (84), India 176/3 in 32 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:33 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: India 172/2 in 31 overs

    Mithali Raj has moved to 39 thanks to a couple of boundaries. This partnership is starting to hurt South Africa and it is safe to say now that India are dominating these middle overs. Mandhana and Mithali have put up 76 runs off 87 balls for the third wicket. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:25 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: India reach 150

    The batters are knocking off the runs a bit more quickly as their partnership goes beyond 50. South Africa are reaching the point where they would be desperate for a wicket again. India 154/2 in 29 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:17 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw Live cricket score: Half century for Smriti Mandhana

    Her second fifty, third 50-plus score if you consider the century she scored against the West Indies.  A single off Luus brings up the mark and she has got there in 69 balls. 

    India 135/2 in 27 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:11 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: India 126/2 after 25 overs

    Close shave for Smriti Mandhana. Luus tosses one outside off and Mandhana goes for a lofted shot that goes nowhere. Mignon Du Preez has a lot of distance to cover running in from long-on and she puts in a dive. She couldn’t hold on but that was a great effort from her. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:06 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: India 120/2 off 23

    India had scored 12 boundaries in the first 14 overs and have since then hit just four. The departure of Shafali Verma has been followed by a nosedive in the scoring rate and Mandhana, especially, seems to be trying to manufacture fours with a couple of lofted shots. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 08:01 AM IST

    INDw vs SAw, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: Mandhana getting treatment

    Shabnim Ismail brought back for the 22nd over and she surprises Mandhana with a well directed bouncer. It clips the batter’s hand and Mandhana takes her glove off before calling for the physio. Just a minor check-up and she is good to go. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:47 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: 100 up for India

    Full down the leg from Tryon and Mithali sweeps to get off the mark with a boundary off the third ball of the 19th over. That takes India to 102/2. All eyes will be on Mithali and Mandhana after those two dismissals now.  

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:41 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: GONE!

    Yastika Bhatia plays on down the leg side and another rather strange dismissal for India! That was a full toss which would have gone for a wide had she left that alone but Yastika sweeps rather hesitantly and the ball takes an edge before hitting the stumps. 

    GONE! Yastika Bhatia b Tryon 2 (3), India 96/2 in 16.3 overs

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:33 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w Live cricket score: OUT! A mix-up ends the stand!

    That has come out of nowhere. Mandhana clips it to mid-on and calls for a single, Shafali seemed to say no but then set off for the run anyhow. She was halfway down the pitch when she saw it was too late and stops halfway down the pitch. Mandhana also does the same and the players walk past each other before the bails are clipped off which means Shafali has to go. That has to be the worst way to end a strong opening partnership. 

    Shafali run out (Luus) 53 (46), India 91/1 off 15 overs 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:30 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: SIX!

    Well how about that, the first six of the match comes from Smriti Mandhana! She lofts Klaas over the long-on boundary to get the maximum. India move to 90/0 in 14 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:27 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: 50 for Shafali!

    Maiden World Cup half century for Shafali. She smashes the ball straight down the ground and it reaches the boundary. That is Shafali’s eighth four and the half century has come in just 40 balls. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:26 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: India 78/0 after 13 overs 

    No boundaries for the past two overs so a little reduction in the run rate which India wouldn’t mind at all at the moment. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:17 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: Shafali in some trouble

    Shafali Verma is down on the ground with what seems to be a knee issue. The physio is out and Shafali has popped a pill. She gets some treatment and gets back to it so, doesn’t look like anything serious. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:10 AM IST

    IND women vs SA women, Live cricket score and updates: England vs Bangladesh

    England have finished their innings on 234/6 against Bangladesh. They recovered well from 96/4. Remember, if England lose this match, India will go through anyhow. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:08 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w Live cricket score: FOUR! Mandhana gets a boundary

    Smriti Mandhana has chosen to hang back thus far and Shafali sent the ball to all parts of the field thus far. But this was a gift from Khaka and Mandhana latches on to it. Nice and wide and too full and Mandhana sends that along the ground past covers for four. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:04 AM IST

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: 50 up for India

    And it has come in just 8.1 overs. Shafali ended the 8th over with a four and then went for a big one. Couldn’t get any timing on it but it lands in a safe zone which allows the batters to run two. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 07:00 AM IST

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: FOUR!

    Shafali Verma powers it through covers off Khaka to get her sixth boundary of the match already. She moves to 34 off 23 and India are 45/0 in 6.4 overs. 

  • Mar 27, 2022 06:47 AM IST

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live cricket score: 17 runs off the third over!

    Shafali Verma has picked South Africa’s spearhead apart. A couple of two’s and a no ball makes that the most expensive over for South Africa in this tournament.

    IND w vs SA w, 2022 Women’s World Cup Live: Hat-trick of fours!

    India are off to a swift start here largely thanks to Shafali Verma who is giving Shabnim Ismail all sorts of problems. The first ball of the third over was too full and on the pads and she flicked that away for four. Then it was too wide outside off and Shafali cut it past backward point for another boundary after which she skipped well wide of off stump to pick it up and set the ball on its way to the fine leg boundary.

    This is the first time in five World Cups that India are playing without Jhulan Goswami. The veteran pacer is out with a side strain and the Indians would be hoping that their previous match was not the last time she played in a World Cup match.

It’s all about holding our nerves, being composed and playing our best cricket. We understand the importance of winning today’s hame. We have two changes. Meghna Singh comes in for Jhulan Goswami, Deepti Sharma in for Punam Yadav.

    IND w vs SA w Live cricket score: India’s results so far

    To say India have had a topsy-turvy tournament would be an understatement. They started off by beating Pakistan by 107 runs, then followed that up with a 62-run loss to New Zealand. They then crushed the West Indies by 155 runs before falling to a four-wicket defeat to defending champions England, who were at the time yet to win a match but were made to work in their chase of a paltry target of 135. India then lost to Australia by six wickets before beating Bangladesh by 110 runs. It has been either big wins or big losses for Mithali Raj’s side in this tournament.

    IND vs SA, Women’s World Cup Live score: The equation

    India, England and hosts New Zealand are all tied on six points. While New Zealand’s fate is sealed as they have played all seven games and have a net run rate that is far lesser than that of England or India, the latter two teams are within touching distance of each other. England have an NRR of +0.778 while India are on +0.768. However, it is important to consider that the team placed above England on third, the West Indies, are on seven points but have an NRR of -0.885. This means that if both England and India win, they will go through to the semis with West Indies getting knocked out.

    India vs South Africa, Women’s World Cup Live score: Hello and welcome! 

    India’s chances of reaching the semi-finals are in their own hands as long as they avoid defeat against South Africa. For if they lose this match, it means that England would have to lose to Bangladesh in the other match that is taking place today. England won the toss and chose to bat first in that game and are finding the going difficult thus far, having lost four wickets in 29 overs for less than 110 runs. It is a tantalising next few hours coming up in the Women’s World Cup so hop along for the ride!
