Cricket is a game of uncertainties and the ongoing series between India Women and South Africa Women proved it yet again. While South African cricket is all in shambles, both on and off the field, their Women's cricket team seems to be driving them. They came into the series on the back of a brilliant series win over Pakistan and topped it off with a series win over India.
The upcoming and final match of the series is now a mere formality, but both sides will want to register a win here. India haven't really played like they are known to and will be under a lot of pressure to get a consolation win. South Africa, on the contrary, will be brimming with confidence and might want to experiment a bit having won the series already. The fifth match of the series is to be played at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow, on 17th March 2021.
Ever since the controversies of not selecting Shikha Pandey sparkled, the on-field performance of Indian Women has spiraled downwards. Surprisingly, Indians have failed to match up their own standards in both departments of the game. The only match they seemed flawless was the second match of the series wherein they registered a solid eight-wicket win over the visitors.
In the last match, Indians failed to match the batting power of Proteas as they failed to score an above-par total on a wicket that had nothing for the bowlers. Having said that, even a few more extra runs on the board wouldn't have helped India as South Africa eventually managed to chase their total down with plenty of resources to spare. Despite having conditions suitable for their bowlers, India have been lackluster with the ball. Apparently, they needed better preparation with the ball before the series started. In addition to that, poor fielding on multiple occasions hasn't really helped India's cause.
On paper, there's hardly any gap India have as far as the team combination is concerned. It was surprising to see them drop Jemimah Rodriques, who has been India's prime performer over the past few years. India have an experienced bowling unit that would want to utilize the conditions. Besides, they have an extensively experienced batting unit that goes deep. India have so far failed to play to their potential and would need to step up their A-game against an in-form South African unit. If they manage to do it, the Proteas will have their work cut out.

While South African men's cricket is going through a rough rebuilding phase, the Women's cricket team seems to be scaling new heights. They came into the series as underdogs, but have played a lot better than many expected them to. As a team, the Proteas have punched above their weight and have consequently found success thrice out of four occasions. With the series already bagged, we expect Proteas to experiment a bit and that might well give India that wee bit of chance.
Prior to the last match, South Africa had an apparent weakness of misfiring middle-order, but with Mignon du Preez, Lara Goodall, and Marizanne Kapp doing well, that problem seems to be no longer persistent. Chasing a total of 266, South Africa needed their batting to fire and it did immaculately. All of their top-four batsmen smacked a half-century each and that laid the perfect foundation for Proteas to register yet another win in the series.
Earlier with the ball, the Proteas were pretty good, given the surface didn't have any assistance whatsoever for the bowlers. Even though she failed to pick up any wicket, Ayabonga Khaka was arguably the pick of South Africa bowling on the day. Tumi Sekhukhune picked up a couple, but she was a little too expensive. Nondumiso Shangase and Shabnim Ismail picked up a wicket each. While South Africa's bowling does not look lethal by any stretch of the imagination, it has done enough to spark a doubt amongst the minds of Indian batsmen.
On paper, South Africa suddenly appear to be a formidable unit. Lizelle Lee now has back-to-back innings of substance against her name and that will not only imbibe her with confidence but also the team. Their batting has been terrific and the bowling has done reasonably well. Given the form they are in, beating Proteas is going to take a colossal effort.

The venue has so far favored the team batting second and that was expected to be the case as well. However, the way the hosts have played, the conditions would not have mattered much. While India are a better-balanced side between the two on paper, the Proteas have executed their plans better. Now that they have their batting in prime form, Indians may not have an easy time in the upcoming match. Keeping in mind the form the two sides are in, betting on a South Africa's win should be the way to go in this fifth and final match of the series.
