The Proteas Women displayed clinical composure to mount an impressive run chase and claim a series-clinching seven-wicket win over India on Sunday.
South African captain Laura Wolvaardt won the toss and elected to field first in the all-important fourth match of the series.
It was India’s Puma Raut, however, who stole the show with a spectacular century that helped the hosts pile on the runs against the Proteas.
Raut’s unbeaten 104 helped the Indian women post a massive 266-4 in their 50 overs.
Lizelle Lee and Wolvaardt, though, again managed an excellent start with the bat to the Proteas innings. Fresh off her innings in the previous encounter, Lee took the attack to the Indians, putting on a 116-run partnership with Wolvaardt.
The latter fell for a brilliant 53 before Lee was trapped in front for 69 a while later.
After Lee fell, Mignon du Preez and Lara Goodall both crossed the half-century mark in a magnificent 103-run stand.
Du Preez lost her wicket on 61 when trying to go for a big shot.
That brought Marizanne Kapp to the crease.
Goodall and Kapp scored the 31 runs required with relative ease as South Africa went on to clinch the five-match series with a seven-wicket victory.
