India women will hope their lower-order batting comes good this time and they are able to challenge South Africa women in the fourth ODI, a game they need to win to stay alive in the five-match series. As of now, the Proteas women lead the series 2-1, and a win on Sunday at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium will seal the series in their favor.

India were coasting along to set up a challenging total against the visitors in the third ODI but failure of the lower-order batsmen to make use of the last five overs restricted them to 249. South Africa batter Lizelle Lee then scored a 131-ball unbeaten 132 to help her team win by six runs under DLS method.

"We are looking at competing with the best (Australia and England). We are looking at 270-plus [to challenge them]...We definitely need to have batters playing the last 10 overs," said Raj speaking to the media after Friday's loss.
