Women’s World Cup: ICC gaffe creates confusion over result of IND-SA warm-up fixture
Women’s World Cup: The International Cricket Council (ICC) revised the scoreboard of the warm-up match between India and South Africa numerous times, causing confusion about the match’s results.
Earlier, the scorecard stated that South Africa had defeated India by four wickets; however, a scoresheet circulated on social media half an hour later, claiming that India had won the match by two runs.
The ICC website updated the scorecard later, and it eventually revealed that India had won the match by two runs. South Africa needed eight runs in the final over to win, but they only scored five, and India won the match by two runs.
At one point, the scorecard indicated that India had won by one run.
After being put into bat by South African captain Sune Luus, India scored 244 runs. The Mithali Raj-led side struggled to get going. With Yastika Bhatia scoring 58 runs for India and Harmanpreet Kaur scoring a century.
Mithali Raj run out for a duck after a mix-up with Bhatia. But Harmanpreet Kaur’s innings belonged to her, who sped ahead with minimal risk.
Harmanpreet scored 103 runs off 114 balls, including nine boundaries, as India amassed a total of more than 240 runs.
