South Africa Women will take on India Women in the 5th Match of the Women’s T20I Tri-Series on January 28 at Buffalo Park in East London, South Africa. The game begins at 10.30 p.m. IST. While India will play their third match, it will be the final game of the hosts as well. Notably, South Africa is currently hosting India and the West Indies in East London in a triangular T20I series in preparation for the women’s T20 World Cup 2023, which will be held in South Africa soon after, in February.
The three teams will play each other twice in the round-robin stage until the top two teams compete in the final on February 2, followed by a short break before the World Cup which begins on February 10. The World Cup will be held in Cape Town, Gqeberha, and Paarl until February 26. “These two sides [India and West Indies] are up there with the most talented and entertaining nations in women’s T20 cricket, having featured in two of the last four finals, with the West Indies lifting the trophy in 2016. This will give the Momentum Proteas a highly competitive build-up to the ultimate prize of the T20 World Cup”, Enoch Nkwe, CSA’s director of cricket, earlier said in a statement.
