Saturday 29th November 2014 14:51 EST

Indian women routed South Africa by an innings and 34 runs in the one-off women’s Test at Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar ground in Bengaluru. Resuming at their overnight score of 83 for six, South Africa had to get 83 more to avoid innings defeat. Though Trisha Chetty and Chloe Tryon showed some determination by adding 53 runs for the seventh wicket and managed to negotiate 27 overs in the morning session they couldn’t continue further as mediumpacer Shikha Pandey produced a beauty that had Trisha caught by wicketkeeper Sushma Verma in 28th over. Soon, Harmanpreet Kaur, who had a five-wicket haul in the first innings, continued her fine bowling performance by scalping Yolani Fourie for zero. After lunch, Harmanpreet got the wickets of Sunette Loubser and Marcia Letsoalo to take her second innings tally to four wickets and the match haul to nine. South Africa lost their final four wickets in a span of 10 overs for just 12 runs. Overnight batswoman Tryon was unbeaten on 30 runs. Wicketkeeper Sushma had a memorable outing with four catches and a stumping.
