IND-W vs SA-W Match Prediction & Analysis - Reddy Anna

India look to extend their winning streak against South Africa into the one-off test on July 28. The 3-0 clean sweep in the ODI series has put India in a very strong position in terms of momentum and confidence. While the result may seem one-sided, South Africa gave a tough fight, notably almost managing a world-record chase in the second ODI - Reddy Anna.

India Women will retain the core of their team for this test match, including the in-form Smriti Mandhana. Marizanne Kapp will be a key player to watch for South Africa. This will be the first test meeting between the two teams since November 2014.

Weather Conditions

The weather in Chennai is expected to be hot and humid with cloudy periods and humidity around 65%. The pitch is expected to slow down as the days progress, favoring teams batting first. Seamers are likely to benefit from the cloudy conditions early in the game.

IND-W vs SA-W Pitch Report

The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai will host the game. This venue is hosting its first test match since India played against England in 2021. The only Women’s Test game at this venue was in 1976.

Toss: The team winning the toss is likely to choose to bat first, as spinners will get more assistance from the pitch as the match progresses.

Winning Prediction

The excellent performances of India Women in the last three ODI matches give them a significant boost in confidence and momentum. The hosts are the favorites for this test, but South Africa Women will not be pushovers. The team winning the toss and batting first will have an advantage. However, given the recent form and home advantage, our prediction is for Indian Women to win.

Prediction: India Women will defeat South Africa Women.
