We are in the 4th game of Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022 where hosts England would take on Sri Lanka Women. England Women recently won 3-0 against South Africa Women and come into this tournament with their tails up. Sri Lanka suffered a series loss against India at home and they shall have to punch above their weight to win this contest.
England Women have had an excellent record in the last 12 months. They have lost just twice in the 20 games they have played, and this would up their confidence. Sri Lanka Women have never defeated England Women in the past and this would be on their minds. The conditions shall challenge the Sri Lankans and fans would closely watch how the underdogs approach this game.
Heather Knight’s side comes into this game with their confidence high. The side played brilliantly against the South Africans in the recently concluded series at home and shall look to carry this momentum forward. Knight wouldn’t like her players to take the Sri Lankans lightly and come up with a clinical performance and earn their first points in the tournament.
Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt did well against South Africa and the pair shall look to set up a good opening wicket stand in this game. The middle order is formidable with Knight, Bryony Smith, and Natalie Sciver being in good form. They have good hitters of the ball in Maia Bouchier and Amy Ellen Jones who would look to take on Sri Lanka’s inexperienced bowling attack.
Katherine Brunt and Issy Wong know these conditions well and they would look to exploit Sri Lanka’s batting weaknesses in these kinds of conditions. Sophie Ecclestone and Kate Cross are specialists in this format and add strength to this bowling attack. England would also like to see good spells from Natalie Sciver and Bryony Smith and not allow the Sri Lankan batters to settle.

Chamari Athapaththu would be aware of the odds that are stacked against her side in this game. They have never defeated England and have a history of struggling in these conditions. The Sri Lankan skipper who likes to lead the side from the front would like her players to play positive cricket and not get intimated by their stronger opponents.
Chamari Athapaththu is the key batter for the side, and she would need to set up a good opening wicket partnership with Vishmi Gunaratne. The middle order has been fragile, and the side would expect runs from Kavisha Dilhari, Harshitha Madavi, and Nilakshi de Silva in this game. Anushka Sanjeewani and Ama Kanchana must do well in the finishers’ role as they are up against a strong bowling attack.
The bowling attack would be under pressure as England have great hitters of the ball. The new ball pair of Udeshika Prabodhani and Sugandika Kumari shall have to stop English batters from running away with the game. Middle overs would be crucial and the trio of Oshadi Ranasinghe, Dilhari, and Kanchana must keep the scoring rate under check. Inoka Ranaweera shall have to do well in the supporting role.

We expect to see a cloudy evening in Birmingham on July 30. The track has been flat in recent games where batters have scored runs easily. Bowlers have had a tough time on this track, but the overcast conditions might make lives easier for them. The side that bats first in this contest shall be eying a score of 160 runs or more.
Edgbaston, Birmingham has been an excellent surface for batters in recent years and we have seen big scores being made and chased. The ball hits the bat hard and allows batters to play their strokes. Fast bowlers do well when there is cloud cover and the ball swings. This is a tough venue for the spinners with very little on the surface for them.
There would be good batting conditions at the venue. During the recent T20 Blast competition more sides won games at this venue batting first. Both sides are likely to take a cue from this. Thus, we believe the side winning the toss in this game shall have no hesitation in batting first.
Sri Lanka would start as clear underdogs in this game. There won’t be too much of expectations from them and the side can use it to its advantage. Their batting line-up shall have to deliver in this game as the conditions would be adverse. England plays at home and the team is enjoying a dream run in this format. They have powerful hitters of the ball, and this would make them favorites to win the game.
