South Africa women (SA-W) will lock horns with Sri Lanka women (SL-W) in the second T20I of the three-match series on Saturday, March 30. The match will be contested at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. South Africa, led by Laura Wolvaardt, took a 1-0 lead in the series, winning the opening game by 79 runs. 

Speaking of the first T20I, Sri Lanka won the toss and invited the hosts to bat first. Inoshi Priyadharshani provided an early breakthrough for Sri Lanka, dismissing Tazmin Brits in the third over. However, Marizanne Kapp joined captain Wolvaardt and forged a stunning 116-run stand for the second wicket. Achini Kulasuriya removed Kapp for 60 but Wolvaardt continued her power-hitting and scored a ton before being dismissed by the same bowler. Notably, South Africa went on to set a mammoth 199-run target. 

Kapp shone with the ball as well, as she dismissed Sri Lanka captain Chamari Athapaththu off the final delivery of the first over. Later, Tumi Sekhukhune and Annerie Dercksen claimed two wickets each as South Africa bundled out the opponents for 119 in 18.2 overs.
