Indian women pacers in focus

Pacers Pooja Vastrakar and Mansi Joshi will be watched keenly when South Africa Women take on Board President’s XI in the second warm-up match here on Sunday.

The first warm-up match was abandoned on Friday due to inclement weather.

Mansi and Pooja have been named in the India T20 squad and a good show on Sunday here would give them the momentum for the five-match T20 series beginning here on Tuesday.

Focus will also be on 15-year-old opener Shafali Verma. Skipper Sushma Verma and her deputy Devika Vaidya would also be more than keen to put up a splendid show and impress the national selectors.

On the other hand, the South Africa women would be looking to get some match practice and test their reserve players as the first game was a washout.
