India Women 121-3 (Mithali 51no) beatSouth Africa Women 119 (Goswami 3-20) by seven wicketsThird match, Women's Quadrangular Series, Potchefstroom
Jhulan Goswami created history to become the leading wicket-taker in Women's cricket as India went on to defeat South Africa comfortably by seven wickets in the third match of Women's Quadrangular Series in Potchefstroom.
India won the toss and decided to field first. After Shikha Pandey (3-22) dismissed both the openers early, Trisha Chetty (28), Mignon du Preez (31) and Marizanne Kapp (23) tried to consolidate the innings but failed to carry on big.
With the Indian bowlers picking regular wickets, South Africa were reduced to 113 for six before Goswami (3-20) went into a wicket-taking spree picking three wickets in as many overs to bowl out the hosts for 119 runs.
In the process, she has gone past Australa's Cathryn Fitzpatrick's tally of 180 wickets to become the leading wicket-taker in the women's game.
In response, even though Poonam Raut (12) and Deepti Sharma (0) fell early in the chase, Mona Meshram (38) and Mithali Raj (51 not out) put India in course of victory which they eventually completed in 41.2 overs with seven wickets in hand. Mithali remained unbeaten after notching another fifty.
Pandey was awarded the player of the match as India top the table with nine points from two games while South Africa are positioned second.
