With an unanticipated win in the third match of the series, South Africa Women have truly announced themselves. They are now leading the five-match series by 2-1 and the upcoming match will be of vital importance for both sides. South Africa would want to register a win and seal the series then and there whereas India would need nothing less than a win to keep the series alive. The third match of the series is to be played at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow, on 14th March 2021.
While India were the firm favorites going into the ODI series, they certainly have not played like that. They've been found off-guard on multiple occasions and the last match was just another example of that. With series at stake, it is high time for Indian players to join the party, and given the form the Proteas are in, it is not going to be an easy job.
The major cause of concern for the Indian management would be the lack of runs from the bat of Jemimah Rodriques. Prior to Covid-19, Rodriques was one of India's most consistent batsmen, but she has already has three single-digit scores in this series. His lack of form is putting excessive pressure on the likes of Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut, putting an extra bit of pressure on India's middle-order. Also, with Shikha Pandey rested, India's bowling attack appears to be lacking sharpness and that was pretty apparent in the previous match as well.
On paper, Indian Women have an immaculately balanced side. The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodriques, Poonam Raut, and Mithali Raj are as good as any you can find in the top four. Besides, they have Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma available to bat in the middle-order. India have so far been inconsistent with their execution, be it with the bat or with the ball. If they can get that right, beating India would be an extremely tough task, especially in the conditions they thrive in.

After getting handed a solid drubbing in the second match of the series, South Africa were bombarded with several questions that needed quick answers. The Protean team has answered all those questions pretty quickly and with grace. They not only defeated India in the third match of the series but did so in a splendid manner. Almost all of their players contributed on an almost flat deck with Lizelle Lee contributing with a match-winning century.
As has always been the case, South African Women have blown hot and cold in limited-overs cricket and the same appears to be the case in this ongoing series as well. They started off in a marvelous manner, defeating India with significant ease, but then exhibited poor performance in all three facets of the game. That loss, perhaps, acted as a wake-up call for the visitors and bounced back in a terrific manner.
With that win, South African Women all of a sudden look well-acquainted with the conditions. They have done reasonably well in the series so far and are expected to be brimming with confidence. Having said that, it was basically a one-man effort in the previous match with Lizelle Lee scoring more than sixty percent to the required runs. They'd need more contribution from the other players in the upcoming contest and if they can do that, Indian women will be in with a tough job.

This series has so far proven to be a lot closer than it was earlier anticipated. South Africa have stepped up their game and the lack of recent match practice is apparent for the Indians. Even though South Africa won the last match, the lack of runs from their middle-order would be a concerning thing for their management. India, on the other hand, have had almost everyone contributing in the series so far. Considering and that the Indians are an overall better side between the two, betting on India's win should be the way to go here.
