India Women beat South Africa Women by an innings and 34 runs in the first Test played between the two sides in India.

12 years ago, the two sides met for the first time in Paarl, where India ran out 10-wicket winners.

Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami played in that match but it was their less experienced team-mates who played starring roles in this game, played at Mysore's Ganghotri Glades Cricket Ground.

MD Thirush Kamini struck 192 in 430 balls and Poonam Raut 130 in 355 as India posted 400 for eight declared, both players reached three figures in the closing stages of the opening day, which ended with India on 211 for one.

Raj made 37 and after the declaration, South Africa limped to close on day two on 85 for three before being bowled out for 234.

Captain Mignon du Preez scored 102 and wicket-keeper Trisha Chetty 55 but with little support, they were undone by Harmanpreet Kaur (5-44) and Rajeshwari Gayakwad (4-54).

Batting again, they fared far worse and were rolled for just 132 in 78.2 overs.

Chetty top scored with 35 and Chloe Tryon was unbeaten on 30 as Kaur returned four for 41.

The two sides will now play three One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 International to conclude South Africa's tour.
