Teams Preview

Australia Women Preview

Australia team once again achieved a clinical win by 41 runs where they outplayed the opposition right from the start of the game. Openers Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney set the tone with an unbeaten 72-run partnership in quick time. Beth Mooney continued the assault to score her second T20I century in T20Is. Alyssa Healy and Ashleigh Gardener played good 40+ cameos to build a vital partnership with Beth Mooney. Australia posted a massive 217 runs on board at the end of their 20 overs.

Their bowlers took 2 quick wickets inside the powerplay and halted the SL chase before their Skipper Chamari Athapaththu took on the Australian bowling attack. Megan Schutt, Tayla Vlaeminck, and Delissa Kimmince took wickets at regular intervals to never allow SL batters to settle. Australia will look to improve their bowling attack this match and won’t allow any easy runs for Sri Lanka. 

Key Players:
Beth Mooney – Beth Mooney scored 113 runs off 61 balls and smashed 20 boundaries on the route. She shared a vital 72-run & 115-run partnership with Healy and Gardener to take their team past 200 runs. 
Megan Schutt – Megan Schutt took the vital wicket of SL skipper after her carnage. She has been one of the most consistent bowlers for the Aussie team and is a very effective new ball bowler.

Sri Lanka Women Preview

Sri Lanka team suffered yet another loss in the T20Is and is really struggling to perform as a team. Their captain Athapaththu played her best t20I knock till date scoring her maiden century in the previous match. No other batter scored over 20-run mark and eventually, they failed in the chase. But they will be delighted with the fact they scored their highest T20I total of 176 runs in that match.

Their bowlers were taken all over the ground by the Aussies. Oshadi Ranasinghe took 2 quick wickets to put a brake on the scoring rate, but other bowlers failed to sustain the pressure created. They ended up giving 200+ runs to the Australia team. Four of the five bowlers used had an economy rate over 10 RPO in the last match. 

Key Players:
Chamari Athapaththu – Athapaththu played a scintillating knock to score 113 runs off 66 balls with 12 boundaries and 6 sixes. She raised from a score of  51 to 113 off just 22 balls as she kept hitting massive sixes.   
Oshadi Ranasinghe – Oshadi Ranasinghe took the vital wickets of Alssa Healy and Meg Lanning after a good start by the Aussies. But they were not able to keep up the pressure as the Australians came attacking despite the fall of wickets. 

Sri Lanka Women Predicted Playing XI:

Chamari Athapaththu (c), Anushka Sanjeewani (wk), Harshitha Madavi, Shashikala Siriwardene, Yasoda Mendis, Nilakshi de Silva, Hansima Karunaratne, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Ama Kanchana, Udeshika Prabodhani, Sugandika Kumari

Venue Details

Toss: To Bowl

Teams are finding it easy to bat on this pitch and chasing is the safe option here. Teams batting first need to make a big score to put pressure on the chasing team. 

Winning Prediction

Sri Lanka skipper Chamari Athapaththu played out of her skin with very little support from her team. Australia is sitting comfortably with contributions from different members of team in both batting and bowling departments. Australia looks stronger in every aspect of the game when compared to Sri Lanka.   

Australia Women will win the match and continue their dominance!
