The International Cricket Council (ICC) modified the scorecard of the warm-up match between India and South Africa many times, causing doubt over the results of the match.

Earlier, the scoreboard indicated that South Africa had defeated India by four wickets; however, half an hour later, a scoresheet circulated on social media indicating that India had won by two runs. The ICC website later corrected the scorecard, and it ultimately stated that India had won the match by two runs. South Africa needed eight runs to win in the last over, but they only scored five, allowing India to win by two runs.

At one point, the scorecard indicated that India had won the match by one run.

Earlier, India scored 244 after South African skipper Sune Luus sent them into bat. The pace was lethargic from Mithali Raj’s side, with Yastika Bhatia scoring 58 runs for India and Harmanpreet Kaur scoring a century.

Captain Mithali Raj was run out for a duck after a mash with Bhatia, but the innings belonged to Harmanpreet Kaur, who cruised along with minimal danger.

Notably, Bhatia herself took to Twitter to clear the air by uploading a snapshot of the official scorecard.
