In the last league match of the ongoing Women’s Asia Cup T20 2022, Pakistan Women will square off against Sri Lanka Women at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet on Tuesday.
Pakistan Women have won four out of five games and are well placed to qualify for the semi-finals. They comprehensively defeated the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Women in their last game.
After being asked to bat first, on the back of contributions from Muneeba Ali (43) and Aliya Riaz (57*), Pakistan Women posted 145 on the board. The bowlers then stepped up and backed up their batters to restrict UAE Women to 74 to win the game by 71 runs. They will be eager to repeat their performance against Sri Lanka Women and finish the league stages on a high.
Sri Lanka Women, on the other hand, lost their opening game against India Women but bounced back soon after. They won their next four games and have taken their points tally to eight. They beat Bangladesh Women in their last game, which was a thriller of a contest.
After being asked to bat first, the Lankan batters struggled a bit as they scored 83 in 18.1 overs. Rain arrived and no further play was possible in the first innings. The second innings was reduced to seven overs and the revised target was 41.
Inoka Ranaweera stepped up for Sri Lanka and finished with figures of 4/7 in her two overs to help her side restrict Bangladesh Women to 37 to win the game by three runs. They will be brimming with confidence after this win and will look to carry forward the winning momentum.
