In­dian women lose fi­nal T20I, but win series 3-1

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Surat: In­dia put up a shoddy dis­play to lose by 105 runs to South Africa in the sixth and fi­nal women’s T20 In­ter­na­tional, but still man­aged to clinch the series 3-1 here on Fri­day. In­dia cliched the six-match series 3-1 with two games be­ing washed out due to rain. Elect­ing to bat first, South Africa made a chal­leng­ing 175 for three, rid­ing on the bat­ting hero­ics of open­ers Lizelle Lee (84 off 47 balls, 15x4s, 1x6) and Sune Luus (62 off 56 balls, 7x4s). The duo put on a siz­zling 144run stand for the open­ing wicket that came off 95 balls to set the tone for the chal­leng­ing score. Chas­ing 176 for a win, In­dia never got go­ing as South Africa pro­duced a lethal bowl­ing ef­fort to re­duce the hosts to 13 for six af­ter 6.2 overs. In­dia crum­bled against the South African bowl­ing at­tack as they were bowled out for 70 in 17.3 overs.
