Toss India chose to bowl vs South Africa

Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss as India elected to bowl in their quest to level the T20I series under overcast Chennai skies.

Laura Wolvaadt, her South African counterpart, wanted to bat first anyway, so both sides got what they wanted as they build towards the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh in October.

Both sides announced unchanged XIs from Sunday’s washout where South Africa posted 177 for 6 courtesy Tazmin Brits, who struck her second straight half-century, and Anneke Bosch.
Richa Ghosh continued to sit out due to a concussion, that she suffered in the first T20I, as a precautionary measure, which meant another opportunity for Assam wicketkeeper Uma Chetry.

This is South Africa’s final game ahead of the T20 World Cup. A win here will help them end a tough tour with some silverware after losses in the ODIs and the one-off Test. India travel to Sri Lanka next week to play the Asia Cup.
