Sri Lanka Women go up against India Women in the third T20 International match on Monday, June 27 at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla from 2:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
The Indian women’s cricket team beat the Sri Lankans by five wickets in the last match to take an unassailable lead in the ongoing series. This is now India’s second-consecutive WT20I series win in Sri Lanka.
The Indian bowling led by Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar restricted the hosts to 125 in the first innings. An all-round performance by India’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur guided the visitors to victory.
Chamari Athapaththu and Vishmi Gunaratne put Sri Lanka Women off to a great start but the rest of their batting unit failed to deliver. Oshadi Ranasinghe and Inoka Ranaweera were impressive with the ball but it wasn’t good enough to stop the Indians from winning.
Both teams are expected to field the same lineups in the final T20I of the series.
