After running high and dry for two matches, South Africa women finally cruised to a five-wicket win over New Zealand women in a closely fought encounter. Their win kept the series alive, making the upcoming match ever more important. With the next match being played within a day of the conclusion of the third T20I, the two sides won't be having enough time to ponder upon their performance in the third match of the series. The next match of the series will be played at the same venue as the third match, that is, Basin Reserve, Wellington, on 10th February. The series has gotten increasingly close after every match and the fourth match between the two sides is expected to be a cracker of a contest as well.
Sophie Devine is having an incredible time in recent games and the same reflected in her last match's performance as well. She helped New Zealand lay a solid foundation in the third match with a 57-ball 77. She was assisted by Suzie Bates at the top of the order. New Zealand's middle-order, however, struggled to continue scoring at the same rate as they slipped from 95 for 1 for 141 for 5 and could not finish their innings with a flourish.
Defending a total of 153, the Kiwis started off on a brilliant note. They got rid of Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, and Marizane Kapp before the trio could deal any significant damage and left Proteas reeling at 56 for 3. Just as the case was with their batting, their bowling struggled in the middle overs. The likes of Sophie Devine, Anna Peterson, and HR Huddleston proved to be rather expensive as New Zealand failed to defend their total.

After producting two poor performances with the bat, South African batsmen exhibited their prowess as the chased down a total of 153 after being in a position from where the possibility of a win looked remote. Bowling first on a good deck to bat on, South African bowlers struggled to keep New Zealand's scoring rate in check as the Kiwis got off to a flying start.
After a lacklustre start with the ball, their bowlers pulled things back in the middle and death overs as Sune Luus and Ayabonga Khaka picked up to wickets a piece. Ayabonga Khaka was the pick of their bowlers as she returned with the impressive figures of 2 wickets for 14 runs.
South Africa looked falling behind in the chase before the partnership between Dane van Niekerk and Mignon du Preez brought them back. However, it was the beligerrent innings of Chloe Tyron that proved to be the difference between the two sides. Tyron smashed 34 off just 16 deliveries and snatched a win from the jaws of defeat for the Proteas. South Africa eventually won the match by five wickets and one ball to spare.

With South Africa winning the third match, the focus now shifts to the fourth match of the series. Both the sides will now be high on confidence leaving almost nothing to separate the two. Having said that, South Africa are a better-balanced side and bat deep. For that reason, we think that South Africa are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
