The third and final T20I between India Women and South Africa Women is set to take place in Lucknow on Tuesday.
The South Africa Women have been impressive on this tour, with a series of wins already under their belt. With the likes of Lizelle Lee and Laura Wolvaardt firing on all cylinders, South Africa will be eyeing a clean sweep heading into the game.
The onus will once again be on Shabnim Ismail to deliver the goods with the ball alongside youngsters Bosch and de Klerk.
The Indians, on the other hand, have done relatively well despite Harmanpreet Kaur's absence. Smriti Mandhana has been in poor form, but India's youngsters have come out firing, with Harleen Deol impressing in both games.
However, they will need to step up with the ball and on the field if they are to topple the South Africans in this fixture.
Although the South Africans have form and momentum on their side, the Indians are a force to be reckoned with in this format.
With only pride left to salvage in this game, expect a tough fight from the home side in what should be a cracking game on Tuesday.

Match: India Women vs South Africa Women, 3rd T20I
Date: March 23, 2021, 07:00 PM IST
Venue: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
A good batting track is on offer at the Ekana Cricket Stadium for this game. While the spinners and pacers should get some movement off the surface, the batters will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat.
Dew should play a role in the second half of the match, which might entice both captains into chasing upon winning the toss. 150-160 should be a good total at this venue, with wickets in hand being the key.
