That's all from our side for tonight. See you soon.

Poonam Yadav: I am trying to give my best for the country. The plan was to bowl as per the batter. When the requirement was to bowl at stumps, I bowled at stumps and when the requirement was to bowl outside off, I did that.

Poonam Yadav is Player of the Match for her 3 for 13.

Harmanpreet Kaur: I think there are a lot of areas we have to improve in our batting. You won't get lucky always. Really happy the way we bowled. Because of those chances we were able to utilise the Powerplay. I told my batters to go and play freely. Thanks to the groundstaff who worked hard to get us a game. That's Shafali's natural game and we are not going to disturb her. She should continue the way she is playing. We worked a lot on our fitness and we are getting results of that.

Sune Luus: Our bowlers created opportunity but the fielders couldn't take it. We set our standards pretty high. There is a lot to play for it in the last game, one to redeem ourselves.

Time for the presentation.

10.37pm A comfortable 51-run win for India to give then an unassailable 2-0 lead in the five-match T20I series, after the second and the third matches were washed out. Apart from Shafali's attacking knock and Rodrigues' class, the fielding made a big difference. South Africa dropped as many as six catches, most them at start while India dropped just one and that too when the result all but decided.

Vastrakar to Goodall, no run, a brilliant yorker, Goodall gets her bat on it and that's it
Vastrakar to Goodall, no run, fuller around off, jams her bat at it
Vastrakar to Khaka, 1 run, fuller on the stumps, skips down and hits it towards long-on
Vastrakar to Khaka, no run, a full toss around off, played back towards Vastrakar once again
Vastrakar to Khaka, no run, fuller on the stumps, digs it out back towards the bowler
Vastrakar to Khaka, no run, fuller on the stumps, struck firmly but Vastrakar stop it in her follow through

Vastrakar to bowl the final over
