With 2-0 down, South Africa were already out of the series. But after the management’s decision to add one more game, the visitors will get a lifeline to at least end the series in a draw. The Proteas will have to win both the remaining matches to level things back.
The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side, on the other hand, will be keen to seal things with one match still to play. They have looked convincing and have dominated the visiting side to go 2-0 up in the series. India will hope to keep the same run and pocket the series with one match still to play.
