The pitch has a lot more even green coverage from the last match. The surface is hard and looks like a batting pitch. The spinners might not get much assistance as compared to what they got in the last game. The square boundaries are short - 58m and 56m respectively while the straight boundary is at 66 metres. A high-scoring match is on the cards.

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian side are 1-0 in the three-match ODI series after a mammoth 143-run victory over South Africa in the first match at the same venue. Smriti Mandhana smashed a blistering ton to put up a 266-run target. Debutant Asha Sobhana took a four-wicket haul to restrict South Africa to 122 runs in 37.4 overs.
