The penultimate group A match of the Women's T20 World Cup 2020 will feature a clash between the two most unsuccessful teams of the group, Sri Lanka Women and Bangladesh Women. Both the Asian sides have lost their respective matches against India Women, Australia Women, and New Zealand Women.
Neither Sri Lanka Women nor Bangladesh Women can make it to the semifinals and hence will play for pride in this match. The islanders had made a solid first impression in the Women's T20 World Cup 2020 warm-up phase as they had defeated pre-tournament favorites England Women by ten wickets. Unfortunately, they could not carry forward that momentum in the main event.
Bangladesh Women were expected to perform better than the way they have done thus far and did give the White Ferns a run for their money in the previous match. Speaking of the players to watch out for, Sri Lanka Women will hope that their captain Chamari Atapaththu leads the team from the front. The skipper has impressed a lot in this tournament and will likely hold the key to the success for Sri Lanka Women.

On the other side, Bangladesh Women will rest their hopes on the duo of Ritu Moni and Murshida Khatun. The former bowled a terrific spell against New Zealand Women while the latter is the team's best player.
