The South Africa women's team kickstarted the series with a victory against Pakistan, and the former will look to seal the series with a victory in the second game of the three-match ODI series.
During the previous outing, South Africa were asked to bat first and managed to score only 200/9 after 50 overs. The Pakistan bowlers dominated the first innings and restricted their opponent to a below-average total.
In response, the Pakistan side were in for a shock as they fell 4 runs short of the target and finished with 197 on the board. Nida Dar notched up an unbeaten half-century, but that couldn't help the visitors get over the line.

Match: South Africa Women vs Pakistan Women
Date: 23rd January 2021, 1:30 PM IST
Venue: Kingsmead, Durban
The track at Kingsmead is known for assisting pacers, as the ball tends to swing and bounce throughout the match. Spinners have hardly had any assistance on this pitch.
Batters, on the other hand, haven't had a fine run on this pitch and will struggle to pile up runs on the board. Anything above 250 could be easily defended at this venue.
