The third match of Women's T20 World Cup 2020 will feature a clash between New Zealand women and Sri Lanka women. Both sides registered big wins in their last warm-up matches. New Zealand thumped Thailand riding on Suzie Bates' fifty while Sri Lanka thrashed England by 10 wickets courtesy of Sashikala Siriwardana's four-wicket haul.

The Kiwis had reached the finals of the tourney in 2009 and 2010, however, they could not capture the championship on both the occasions. They will look forward to winning their maiden T20 World Cup trophy in 2020. New Zealand have an impressive record at this event as they have won 20 of the 28 matches that they have played.

On the other side, Sri Lanka women have never been able to make it to the second round of the competition. Chamari Atapattu and co. will aim to break that dismal record and progress to the next round in Australia.

Shifting our focus to the players to watch out for in this contest, Suzie Bates will hold the key to success for New Zealand as she was the leading run-scorer from her team in the warm-up matches. The Islanders will rest their hopes on the shoulders of Udeshika Probodhani to get the better of the Kiwi batsmen.

Here is all you need to know about this match.
