South Africa Women will face the WI in the fourth match of the tri-series on Wednesday, January 25 at Buffalo Park in East London.

This will be the fourth game in the series, and the WI will be searching for their first victory.

All games, including the championship, will be held at Buffalo Park in East London.
West Indies’ batting struggles continued as they lost by 44 runs to South Africa in the second match of the women’s T20I tri-series in East London. Following Marizanne Kapp’s fifty, which powered South Africa to 141, Masabata Klaas’ four-wicket haul helped them recover from their opening game loss to India. A massive, dominant partnership, followed by a disciplined bowling performance, aided India’s second win in the women’s T20 tri-series. Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur shared an unbroken 115 for the third wicket, both hitting half-centuries, to help India reach 167 for 2.
The Indian spinners then held the West Indies to 111 runs, highlighted by Deepti Sharma’s 2 for 29. Shikha Pandey recorded frugal figures of 0 for 18 after four overs in her first T20I since October 2021. The only resistance came from captain Hayley Matthews and Shemaine Campbelle’s 71-run partnership.
