Pakistan and South Africa Women will lock horns for one final time on this tour in the third ODI on Thursday (September 14). While Pakistan won all the three T20Is, South Africa made a stunning comeback in the ODI series winning the first two matches. Having already lost the series, the hosts will be looking to win the third match and end the series on a high.
Pakistan's batting has been an issue in this series thus far with scores of 165 and 168 respectively in two matches. On the other hand, the visitors' batters especially Marizanne Kapp and Sune Luus have done well to hold the line-up together. The bowling attack has also done its job for South Africa. Expect Pakistan to come hard at South Africa to avoid a whitewash in the ODI series.
PAK-W vs SA-W 3rd ODI Pitch Report
Pitch is a decent one to bat on but it is South Africa's bowling more than the surface that has kept the Pakistan batting quiet. The home side will have to improve its batting at any cost to even pose a challenge to South Africa's in-form batters.
