Mysore: India Women inched closer to victory as they bundled out their South African counterparts for a meagre 234 and then reduced them to 83 for six after forcing a follow-on on day three of the one-off Test match here on Tuesday.

Despite a century by skipper Mignon du Preez, South African eves failed to topple India's first innings total of 400 for six declared, thereby trailing the hosts by 166 runs.

As a rule, a team bowling out the opposition by keeping a cushion of 150 or more runs is entitled to enforce a follow-on and Indian skipper Mithali Raj decided to put South Africa in to bat again.
