India women 248 for 5 (Raj 66, Raut 65, Khaka 3-69) beat South Africa women 247 for 6 (Wolvaardt 69, Pandey 2-38) by five wickets

In a reprise of her match-winning knock in the 2017 Women’s World Cup Qualifier final, against South Africa, that secured India the title off the final ball, Harmanpreet Kaur‘s unbeaten 39 helped seal the team’s highest successful chase in ODIs – against the same opponents – in Vadodara.

Set up by half-centuries from Mithali Raj and Punam Raut, India overhauled the 248-run target with five wickets and two overs to spare, meaning the hosts took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
