Shafali, Rajeshwari star in Indian girls’s comfort win

Gayakwad picked up three wickets for just nine runs to help India restrict South Africa Women to 112/7 and then Verma and captain Smriti Mandhana (48 not out off 28 balls) shared 96 runs for the opening wicket to canter to an easy win with nine overs to spare. Shafali hit seven fours and five sixes during his blistering knock while Mandhana had nine boundaries in his unbeaten innings. SA Women clinched the three-match T20I series 2-1, having won the first two matches. PTI
