The Proteas women beat India 4-1 in the five-match one-day series and also won the T20Is by 2-1 margin.

At the Sports Excellence Awards, Mthetwa announced that the amount R500,000 (INR 26.28 lakh) will be equally distributed among the members of the squad.

"The Proteas women's cricket team once again made history by winning the ODI Series and the T20 Series (in India)," Mthetwa said.

"Before the India tour, the team reached the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, which was held in Australia last year.
They also beat visitors Pakistan in both the T20 and One-Day-International series 3-0 in February and March, which Mthetwa described as "an exceptional performance."

"Whilst we continue to battle the pandemic, South African athletes have continued to do battle in international sporting competitions.  These soldiers have been flying the South African flag high and continued to entertain and bring joy to South Africans," Mthetwa said.

Several other athletes also received an award of R20,000 each.
