    The Proteas women suffered a heavy defeat in their Test, while Qaasim Adams is confident the Titans can bounce back.

    Adams thinks Titans can be champions

    After a superb knock of 68 runs in the Ram Slam T20 match on Sunday, Qaasim Adams was frustrated with the end result as the titans fell just short against the Cobras. It (his knock) was a bit of a waste. As a team, we have lost, and that is what it is all about,’ said Adams.

    Adams felt aggrieved that they were unable to do what they had been working hard on in training when it came to match time. ‘When you get into a position like this, you want to take the team over the line. It was something we discussed at length in our team meetings.’

    In closing while Adams had acknowledged the fact that the Titans were probably out of playoff contention, he was confident that the team could get back to dominating the domestic circuit. ‘We have the quality in our side to become a champion team like we were previously and to dominate. Our time will come.’

    Harmanpreet Kaur bowls India Women to an innings win

    India women cruised to an innings and 34 run victory over South Africa on the final day of the one off Test match in Mysore, thanks to a superb display of bowling by Harmanpreet Kaur.

    South Africa resumed their second innings on 83/6 on the final day, and showed some early resistance thanks mainly to Chetty (35) as the visitors added 37 runs to their overnight score before Pandey (1-7) got the breakthrough for the hosts, leaving South Africa on 120/7. The visitors would lose one more wicket before the lunch break as Fourie was bowled for a duck off Kaur’s (4-41) bowling.

    South Africa didn’t last long after the lunch break, as the tail-enders were dismissed very shortly after the resumption of play. This left Tryon stranded on 30 not-out as India claimed a resounding innings victory.
