Fantasy Tips of The Day
It isn’t South Africans but Indians who are the top run-scorer and wicket-taker in East London. While Smriti Mandhana has smashed 143 runs at an average of 48, Deepti Sharma’s off-spinners have fetched her 8 wickets at a strike rate of 9.
In the current lot, Sune Luus has the most runs (296) for South Africa against India.
In the T20Is between these teams, Shabnim Ismail has collected the most wickets (15).
Laura Wolvaardt has been in top-notch form since the Australian T20 League. She has hammered 275 runs at an impressive average of 39 in her last 10 competitive T20s.
Nonkululeko Mlaba is the only player in this contest to feature in the Ultimate Team in all games of the series.
In her last 10 games, Jemimah Rodrigues has only two 30-plus scores and six single-digit scores.
Spinners have had a great time in the series, accounting for 52% of the wickets.
