India Women will lock horns with South Africa Women in the final league match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 on Sunday. It is a do-or-die game for India to stay in the tournament. Things went pretty fine for them in the previous game, as they sealed a 110-run win over Bangladesh. They have had their fair share of ups and downs in the tournament, but now, they need to give their best against a top-quality South African side.
South Africa, on the other hand, have been brilliant, losing only a single game, against against Australia by 5 wickets. They should be proud of their performances. They are already into the knockouts, but would still want to win this match.

IN-W vs SA-W, Match 28 Pitch Report:
It was pretty easy out there for the batters in the first half when New Zealand took on Pakistan on Saturday. There is always extra assistance for the seamers which makes things interesting. It is tough to chase under the lights and batting first is a good option.
