There have been no surprises in the three-match series as India Women have defeated Sri Lanka Women squarely to take an unassailable 2-0 lead. The Indian team came up with a strong show in the last game as they defeated the hosts by 10 wickets in a one-sided contest. The visitors shall look to make the best use of this momentum as they play the final game of this tour.
Sri Lanka Women haven’t done well against Indians in the past and so far, defeated them just twice in 31 games between the two teams. In this series as well, the side has failed to put up a stiff challenge against the visitors. The Lankan women would like to change the script here and it will be interesting to note their approach in this contest.
Chamari Athapaththu’s side meekly surrendered to the Indians in the last game. The side has failed to compete in most games of this tour, but they suffered their worst defeat so far in the last game with their bowlers taken to the cleaners. As the side plays the last game the Sri Lankan skipper would look for a face-saving win and a powerful performance from her players.
Hasini Perera and Vishmi Gunaratne failed to provide a good start to the side in the last game and they need to rise to the occasion here. Athapaththu shall need to steer the innings in the middle order and add runs with Harshitha Madavi and Anushka Sanjeewani as this has been one of the problem areas for the team. Nilakshi de Silva and Ama Kanchana played well in the last game, and they will have to do the heavy lifting towards the end.
Their bowling attack looked ordinary in the last game and the side would like to see Achini Kulasuriya and Oshadi Ranasinghe grab wickets with the new ball. Inoka Ranaweera and Ama Kanchana didn’t trouble the Indians in the last game, and they have to come up with better efforts in the new ball. Kavisha Dilhari and Athapaththu add to the side’s bowling options and good spells would be needed from them.

It was just the kind of batting performance that Harmanpreet Kaur would have been hoping for. Their top order had struggled since the start of the tournament, but all came good in the last game with a massive win. Kaur would like to see a clinical performance from her team in this game and whitewash the visitors before they take on tougher opponents in the coming months.
Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana set up a 174-run unbeaten stand in the last game and the pair shall look to start from where they had left in the last game. The middle-order has power hitters and runs would be expected from the bats of Kaur, Yastika Bhatia, and Harleen Deol. Deepti Sharma, Richa Ghosh, and Pooja Vastrakar shall look to add quick runs in the final overs of the innings.
Their bowling performance has been excellent since the start and the side would like to see early wickets from Renuka Singh and Meghna Singh. Deepti Sharma has looked good in the middle overs, and she would trouble the Lankans with her variations. This bowling attack has lots of variety with Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, and Kaur in the mix.

We would see slightly overcast skies over Pallekele on July 7. The wicket has been good for batting as the ball has come onto the bat nicely. Bowlers have found it challenging to bowl on this track. The side batting first shall need 250 runs on the board to feel safe on this wicket.
Pallekele International Cricket Stadium has big boundaries, but the outfield is lightning quick. It has been a great venue for batters, and we have seen lots of runs being made here. There isn’t much on this surface for the fast bowlers, but spinners have done well as the ball turns sharply on this track.
In both the games we have seen the side batting first winning the game. There is early moisture on the surface that makes it easy for the bowlers. The wicket gets better as the game progresses. The side winning the toss here would have very little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Sri Lanka Women have their backs to the wall and the side would have to play for its pride in this game. Their players are down on confidence, and they would need to play aggressively with the bat to put pressure on the Indians. The visitors have been clinical on this tour and now have their top order in good form. This would make them favorites to win this game.
