The Proteas Women's team is gearing up for the T20 International (T20I) series finale against Sri Lanka in East London, with seamer Tumi Sekhukhune emphasizing the team's determination to secure a convincing series win in spin-friendly conditions. With one win each for South Africa and Sri Lanka in the first two games, all eyes are on the final showdown scheduled for Wednesday, April 3, at the Buffalo Park Stadium starting at 18h00.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Sekhukhune highlighted the team's goals in T20I cricket, especially with the 2024 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup approaching. "We need to get that momentum going. We need to clean the series and get 3-0," she said, emphasizing the importance of adapting to subcontinental conditions.

In the second T20I in Potchefstroom, the Proteas Women got off to a strong start thanks to Anneke Bosch's half-century, but Sri Lanka fought back to restrict South Africa to 137/8. Sekhukhune stressed the need for the middle-order batters to capitalize on such strong starts and aim for scores above 180 consistently.

Despite facing challenges with injuries and limited game time, Sekhukhune expressed her eagerness to earn a spot in the upcoming World Cup squad, highlighting her commitment to continuous learning and growth in the game.

The series finale promises to be a thrilling encounter as both teams vie for supremacy. Fans can expect an exciting display of cricket as the Proteas Women aim to clinch the series victory.
