India women's team will be missing out on their veteran star as all-rounder Rumeli Dhar will join the squad to replace injured fast bowler Jhulan Goswami for the remaining three T20Is against South Africa which the Women in Blue currently lead 2-0. Goswami was ruled out of the five-match T20I series due to a heel injury.

The pacer recently became the first female cricketer to take 200 ODI wickets in the second ODI against South Africa, which clinched by a massive 178-run victory at Kimberley.

Goswami, an ICC Women Cricketer of the Year in 2007, had earlier broken Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick's record of highest wickets in women ODIs.

Earlier, India registered a thumping seven-wicket win over South Africa in the high-scoring series opener in Potchefstroom and recently won the second T20I by nine wickets with the help of Mithali Raj and Smriti Mandhana as the visitors managed to chase down a modest score of 143 runs set by the hosts.

India Women's T20I squad: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana (vc), Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Taniya Bhatia (wicket-keeper), Nuzhat Parveen (wicket-keeper), Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Rumeli Dhar.
