The Proteas Women’s team clinched a convincing five-wicket victory in the final ODI against India on Wednesday, wrapping up a 4-1 series triumph in the subcontinent.
With a series victory already secured, the South Africans were hoping to end on a high and managed to do just that with another smooth performance in Lucknow, despite resting a few key players.
Bowling first, the visitors were aggressive in their attack, knocking the India Women over for 188 in the final over of their innings.
Nadine de Klerk bagged three wickets, while Nondumiso Shangase and Tumi Sekhukhune both added two scalps each.
In reply, Mignon du Preez and Anneke Bosch both struck half-centuries after the Proteas Women lost a few early wickets.
At 27-3, Du Preez and Bosch had quite the job to do but their 96-run partnership swung the momentum back in South Africa’s favour.
Marizanne Kapp (36) and Nadine de Klerk (19) saw the Proteas women home with ten balls remaining.
