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

The Mithali Raj-led India are coming off a 110-run win over Bangladesh that kept their semi-final hopes alive. The Women in Blue are currently fifth on the points table and need at least one point to secure a top-four finish and a semi-final spot ahead of West Indies courtesy a better run rate.

However, India are up for a stern contest against South Africa, who have already qualified for the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 semi-finals.

The Proteas are guaranteed a second-place finish in the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 league phase, as they have nine points from six games. South Africa’s game against West Indies was washed out and the result meant they would move on to the knockout stage for the third time in history, and the second time in a row after the 2017 edition.

India women have a dominant head-to-head record against South Africa women in the ODI format, winning 15 of the 27 matches that they have played so far. South Africa have managed 11 victories.
