It is the 11th game of the Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022 where South Africa Women would be taking on Sri Lanka Women. Both sides haven’t won a game yet and they are out of contention for a berth in the next round. South Africa lost against England in their previous game while Sri Lanka Women had another poor day against New Zealand Women.
This game would be inconsequential as far as the fight for a place in the semifinal is concerned and both teams would like to finish on a high. South Africa has dominated Sri Lanka in the past and they would like to continue with their dominance. Sri Lanka Women have performed poorly on the world stage and a win in this game would serve well for their confidence in upcoming games.
It has been a poor campaign for Sune Luus’ side as they are out of contention for a place in the next round. They failed to execute their plans against England Women in the last game and went down by 26 runs. The side would play for its pride in this contest and the South African skipper shall like to see a collective effort from her players in this game.
Anneke Bosch and Tazmin Brits set up a good opening wicket stand in the last game. The side would need a similar show from their openers. Laura Wolvaardt looked good at No. 3, and she will have to sheer the innings with Chole Tryon and Mignon du Preez. They will look to score at a better rate. Luus, Nadine de Klerk, and Sinalo Jafta shall need to do the heavy lifting towards the end.
Shabnim Ismail and Nonkululeko Mlaba have done well in the tournament and the side would look to strike early in this game. Ayabonga Khaka and Nadine de Klerk have struggled with their lines and the side would need tighter spells from them in this game. Bosch and Tryon shall have to do well in the supporting role in this contest.
Sune Luus (c), Tazmin Brits, Anneke Bosch, Laura Wolvaardt, Mignon du Preez, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Sinalo Jafta (wk), Shabnim Ismail, Ayabonga Khaka, Nonkululeko Mlaba

It was another big loss for Chamari Athapaththu’s side in the last game against New Zealand Women. Their bowlers had done a relatively good job restricting New Zealand to a small total. However, their batters weren’t up to the task and the side went down by 45 runs. Athapaththu who likes leading the team from the front shall look for a strong show from her players in this final game.
Chamari Athapaththu will have to play a key role in opening the batting with Vishmi Gunaratne. They are the best players on this team. The middle order has struggled in recent games and the side would like to see runs from Hansini Perera, Harshitha Madavi, and Nilakshi de Silva. Kavisha Dilhari, Anushka Sanjeewani, and Ama Kanchana can bat, and the team would need a solid show from them down the order.
Oshadi Ranasinghe and Sugandika Kumari looked good with the new ball in the previous game. The side would be happy to see them come up with a similar show. Inoka Ranaweera and Ama Kanchana will have a tough challenge in the middle overs as the South African have good hitters of the ball. Kavisha Dilhari and Athapaththu shall need to fill in the role of a 5th bowler.

We expect to see partly overcast skies over Birmingham on August 4. The track has been two paced and this has created doubts in the minds of batters. We are likely to see a similar surface here where batters would have to spend time on the crease to score run. 160 runs on the board would be a good score on this surface.
Edgbaston, Birmingham is a batter’s venue and we have seen sides put up bit scores at this venue in the past. Fast bowlers do well under overcast conditions as they get to move the ball. It is a tough venue for the spinners as the wicket doesn't offer them assistance and the ball skids through.
We have seen most sides win games in the tournament batting first. The wicket has slowed down in the second innings in most games making run chases difficult. Both captains would have this in their minds at the toss and shall look to bat first and put up a big score on the board.
Sri Lanka Women have been poor performers at multi-nation competitions. Most of their players tend to be intimidated by the occasion. Their batters would need to play with a positive mind for the side to win this game. South Africa Women are a good side but failed to click in this tournament. The side would like to finish in style. They have a strong batting line-up well-suited for these conditions and this would make them favorites in his game.
