IND W vs RSA W 2nd ODI: Who Will Win the Match?


IND W vs RSA W 2nd ODI: The women’s teams of India (IND W) and South Africa (RSA W) are set to take on each other in the second One Day International match of the three match ODI series at Bengaluru’s iconic M.Chinnaswamy Stadium. The match will take place on 19th June and it will commence at 1:30pm IST.

The Women in Blue registered a dominating 143 run win against the Proteas in the first ODI thanks to the superb efforts of Smriti Mandhana (117 runs in 127 balls) with the bat and Asha Sobhana (4-21) with the ball and gained a 1-0 lead in the three match series.

Smriti’s knock of 117 runs consisted of one six and 12 fours while the duo of Pooja Vastrakar and Deepti Sharma applied the finishing touches to the Indian Batting inning as the Harmanpreet Kaur-led team managed to post a good looking total of 265-8 on the board after the end of 50 overs. South Africa’s Ayabonga Khaka was the best bowler for the Proteas as she ended the match with figures of 3-47 next to her name.

This first ODI against the South Africans was the debut game of Asha Sobhana and she made an instant impression with figures of 4-21 next to her name and registered her first four wicket haul in One Day Cricket. The South African batting unit didn’t have an answer to the brilliant bowling of the Indians and they got bundled out for a mere score of 122 runs and eventually lost the match by 143 runs.

With the second game set to be played at the same Stadium, Harmanpreet Kaur and company will be looking to seal the series with a win while Laura Wolvaardt and her girls would like to bring an end to the Indian domination and level the series. 

Ahead of the second ODI, let’s take a look at the team which might have an upper hand to win.

Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is well known for its batting friendly and flat surface and it’s basically a batting paradise and a nightmare for the bowlers. The short boundaries makes it easier for the batters to score runs and contributes to the stadium’s history of high scoring matches.

In the first One Day International between India women and South Africa Women, the home team took full advantage of the conditions on offer and posted a really good total of 265 runs on the board. But, things might change in the upcoming second match of three match series as the surface is expected to be a balanced one which means it will provide an equal amount of support to both the batters and the bowlers which will ensure that a thrilling and entertaining contest will be taking place at this ground in the second ODI. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led team have participated in 13 one day international matches at this ground and have finished victorious on seven occasions.

India’s star opening batter and vice captain, Smriti Mandhana, can once again prove to be the best batter in the second One Day International match against South Africa. The 27 year old is in a rich vein of form currently and she scored a really crucial match winning hundred in the first ODI of the series. This century was her sixth in one-day Day Cricket and first at home. Her knock of 117 runs in 127 balls saved the home team from suffering a batting unit collapse after choosing to bat first in the previous match. She is a player to watch out for and can once again pose a threat to the Proteas bowling unit.

Best Bowler of the match (Predicted): Asha Sobhana

Leg spinner Asha Sobhana can once again prove to be the best bowler in the second One Day International match against South Africa. Hailing from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, the leggie outsmarted the entire South African batting unit with her unreadable leg spin deliveries and ended with four wickets in the previous game and also proved to be economical as she gave away just 21 runs. With her mystery spin, she can prove to be a huge threat for the opposition batting unit in the upcoming match.
