A combined bowling effort and skipper Harmanpreet’s unbeaten 34* guided India to another victory in the extra T20I that was added due to successive washed out games.
The hosts have now clinched the six-match T20I series by an unassailable 3-0 lead with one game to go. The sixth and final T20I will be played today at the same venue.
Earlier, Deepti Sharma and Radha Yadav proved Harmanpreet’s decision to bowl first right after returning with impressive figures of 2-19 and 3-23 respectively. As a result, South Africa posted a mediocre total of 98-8 in the allotted overs. Coming to chase, the hosts were reduced to 29-3 at a point but skipper Harmanpreet’s calm 34 of 32 deliveries helped India achieve the target in 17.1 overs with 5 wickets in the bag.
With the series turned into a dead rubber, it’s time for both the sides to test their bench strength and look forward towards the One Day Internationals. The three ODIs will be played at Reliance Stadium, Vadodara on October 09, 11 and 14 respectively.
