After being hammered in the opening T20I, Sri Lanka Women are set to host the English Women at Colts Cricket Club Ground, Colombo for the second T20I.

Sri Lanka will be looking to register their first victory in this home series, while the visitors are close to completing yet another successful whitewash.

England Women have been in scintillating form throughout this sub-continent tour; after outplaying the Indian team, they are now doing the same to Sri Lanka in their backyard. The visitors registered a comprehensive victory by eight wickets in the opening encounter at Colombo.

Linsey Smith and Anya Shrubsole blew the Sri Lankan team away as the pair took five wickets between them to bundle the hosts out for a mere 94 runs. In reply, Tammy Beaumont scored a crucial half-century in the low scoring affair to take her side over the line.

While England would be looking to seal the series in the penultimate game, Sri Lanka Women are still struggling to find their feet in the series. After a string of losses, the Sri Lankan team would be hoping to bounce back in this do-or-die encounter.

The clash at Colombo once again highlighted the hosts' batting woes as they couldn’t even cross the 100-run mark. Sri Lanka will be determined to land a counter punch in the upcoming fixture and try to stay alive in the series.
