Mithali Raj is the player of the match as well as the player of the series.

Mithali Raj showed the importance of staying at the wicket. She managed to adjust herself to the pace of the pitch and attacked thereafter. She was aided ably by Jemima Rodrigues. Harmanpreet Kaur rubbed it in for South Africa by her batting. While it may not show, the biggest difference between the teams was the ground fielding. While the South Africans let a few runs through, Indians din't. And the catch by Jemima Rodrigues, what can be said about it ? She is all of 17 and the judgement, fielding as well as batting, shown by her belies her age. India seem to have found a player for future.

17.6RS Gayakwad to M Klaas, OUT, No run, and that's the match for India! They win the series 3-1. Tossed up ball outside the off stump, Klaas comes down the track and is beaten. She is too far down the track to even attempt going back into the crease. Taniya Bhatia collects the ball and whips the bails off in a flash.
17.5RS Gayakwad to A Khaka, OUT, No run, fuller ball outside the off stump. She heaves it to long-on where Madhana moves to her right and takes the catch.
17.4RS Gayakwad to M Klaas, 1 run,
17.3RS Gayakwad to A Khaka, 1 run, drives it to mid-off for a single.
17.2RS Gayakwad to A Khaka, No run, turns it to the leg side but can't take a run.
