We are into the business end of the Women’s Asia Cup T20 2022. Sri Lanka Women will face Bangladesh Women in the 18th match, which will be played at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet.
Sri Lanka are on a roll in this year’s competition. After losing the first game, they turned the tables on their opponents and won the next three games. They faced Malaysia Women in their last game and defeated them comprehensively.
Batting first, the Lankans struggled a bit as they posted just 105 on the board, losing seven wickets, with Oshadi Ranasinghe top-scoring with 23.
However, the bowlers made up for the lacklustre batting effort and knocked over the Malaysian side for an ignominious 33 in just 9.5 overs to win the game by 72 runs.
Malsha Shehani starred with the ball, finishing with figures of 4/2 in her 1.5 overs. They will look to repeat their performance while facing Bangladesh on Monday.
Bangladesh Women, meanwhile, are coming off a loss in their previous fixture. They have played four games so far, winning two and losing two. They suffered a heavy loss against India in their last game, on Saturday.
Rumana Ahmed picked up three wickets with the ball but they failed to keep a check on the scoring rate as India posted 159 on the board. Skipper Nigar Sultana top-scored with 36 for Bangladesh, but a lack of contributions from the lower-order batters resulted in them falling short by 59 runs. They will have to be at their absolute best to get back to winning ways.
