Match Preview

South African Women's team has won the series 2-0 with a match still to go. They will look to whitewash Sri Lankan team and make it 3-0 win.

Captain Dane Van Niekerk has been their best performer with the bat. No other player has scored more than 20 runs in the team. Sune Luus set the match for South Africa with a five wicket haul last match. Marizanne Kapp and Masabata Klaas has been economical with their bowling and captured wickets at regular intervals to halt the opposition`s momentum. They would need their middle order to stand up and score some runs this match. 

Sri Lankan team has been in awful form losing the series and facing a potential whitewash. Shasikala Siriwardene played a sensible knock of 38 runs last match.

Hasini Perera, Skipper Chamaari Atapaththu and Imalka Mendia have scored 20s but failed to make them a big score. Inoka Ranaweera, Siriwardene and Achini Kulasuriya has bowled some economical spells. Their bowlers were left to defend meager totals in both the matches after the failure of batswomen. The bowlers have bowled well and tried to give a tough fight to South African team.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Centurian pitch is known to help batsmen and has very little aid to the bowlers. Average score in this pitch is around 150-170 runs. The pitch will remain the same for both the innings. 

Toss: WIN the toss, BOWL First

Chasing has been the best option in T20s nowadays. Teams have found it easier to chase down a total rather than setting up one. South Africa has won both matches chasing so both teams will look to chase the score.

Winning Prediction

Sri Lankan teams seem lost and are losing a string of matches in a row. South African team on the other hand has the home advantage and is playing reasonably well, so we predict South African team to win this match.
