India-South Africa triangular women’s cricket match washed out by rain
East London. The women’s triangular T20 International cricket match between India and South Africa had to be abandoned due to rain here on Saturday. Both these teams have already qualified for Thursday’s final and thus the match here was like a ‘dress rehearsal’ ahead of the title clash. The match, however, saw only two overs of play due to rain in which India scored four runs without loss. Jemima Rodrigues opened India’s account by hitting a four off Nonkululeko Malaba. At the other end, Smriti Mandhana was yet to open an account. He had let go of Shabnim Ismail’s first Hoga Maiden.

Shabnim returned in this match after being out of the first three matches. Indian all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar also made a comeback in this match after September but she could not even take the field due to rain. Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and elected to bat first, and Vastrakar was named in the playing XI. India is unbeaten after three matches. They will take on West Indies in their last match of the group stage on Monday. West Indies have lost all their three matches so far.
