The rustiness of not having played cricket for a long time was clearly apparent when India Women took on South Africa Women in the first match of the T20I series. Indian Women shrugged all that off in the second T20I as they registered a massive win over South Africa win. The series now hangs in balance and the focus now shifts to the third and final match of the series. The two teams will meet on 12th March 2021 at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
Indian Women were always a stronger team on paper, but it took them one match to get back to their usual best. After a poor show in the first match, Indian Women overcame their vulnerabilities and registered a 9-wicket win. Not many would have thought India would find it so easy after Smriti Mandhana elected to field after winning the toss. Mandhana herself proved the decision right as she smashed a 64-ball 80.
While Mandhana and Poonam Raut sealed the deal for the Indians, the match was well and truly set up by Jhulan Goswami with the ball as she picked up four wickets for 42 runs. Her spell proved to be the difference between the two sides as South Africa could never get going when she was operating. Apart from her, Mansi Joshi, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, and Harmanpreet Kaur did remarkably well to keep South Africans in check.
Unlike the case was in the first match, Indian batsmen looked solid from the very beginning and utilized the conditions to their advantage. Considering that they are playing at home, we expect Indians to get better from here. On paper, Indians have a terrific side with all bases covered. Perhaps the only thing that was highlighted is the absence of Shikha Pandey and that seems to be sorted as of now. Considering how well they did in the previous match, beating India would be a difficult task in the upcoming match.

South Africa Women would not have expected such a terrific start to this series, but now that they have, they'll also be looking to wrap this series up. As much terrific they were in the first match, they were as terrible in the second match. It is not going to be easy for them to take on an in-form Indian unit, but the Proteas are certainly capable of causing an upset here.
In the previous match, it was their batting that fell like a pack of cards, and then their bowling had almost nothing to defend. Their star batsmen in Lizelle Lee and Laura Wolvaardt failed to do anything of substance and that allowed Indians to get on top. Proteas' best scorer was Lara Goodall, who scored 49 runs off 77 deliveries. Apart from her and Sune Luus, none of their batsmen managed to get to even a score of 49.
On paper, South African Women have a terrific side that gains its strength from the presence of solid all-rounders. The likes of Lizelle Lee and Luara Wolvaardt can be dangerous to deal with, especially when they are in and set. It seemed that they were not really acquainted with the conditions and that might have cost them the game. If they can shrug off that loss, they can certainly challenge India in the upcoming match.

The series is still pretty much in balance and with just three matches to go, this match is of significant value. On paper, India are a better team, but they will remember being outplayed by Proteas not long ago. South Africa, on the other hand, have always struggled for consistency and that seems to be the case here in this series as well. For that reason and the fact that India are anyway an overall better side, betting on an India Women win should be the way to go here.
