India women take on South Africa women in match 28 of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Sunday, March 27. The match will begin from 6:30 AM IST.

India women kept their semi-finals hopes alive as they beat Bangladesh by a big margin of 110 runs. However, a stern test awaits the Mithali Raj-led side when they face second-placed South Africa. Come Saturday, victory is a must for the Women in Blue to ensure they finish in the top four and qualify for the semis.

South Africa, on the other hand, have already qualified for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 semi-finals and will be aiming to end their group stage commitments on a positive note.

While India returned to winning ways from back-to-back defeats in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 during their previous outing, South Africa had their recent match against West Indies washed out. Heading into the crunch clash on Sunday, India requires at least a point to qualify for the semi-finals.

South Africa will start as slight favourites on Sunday, despite the odds not in favour of a win for them. Their performances in the ongoing Women’s World Cup 2022 puts the Proteas in a position to get the better of India.

India, on the other hand, will be playing their last league game of the Women’s World Cup 2022 and must win to keep their semi-final hopes alive.
