A win today will give Lanka the Series

Sri Lankan women cricketers will be hope to win today’s game and seal the series in their favour, while the visiting West Indies women will be looking forward for a comeback in the five match series when the fourth ODI commences at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Sri Lanka leads the five match series 2-1.

West Indies women won the first of the three matches played at the Rangiri Dambulla Stadium by 40 runs. Sri Lankan women, after losing the first one, fought back to win the second by two wickets.and the third game by eight wickets.

They come out with high morale. Sri Lankan batting improved during the last two matches with Dedunu Silva, the star batswomen in the Lankan team, scoring the second best score in the tournament (58) which included nine boundaries. She was among the runs throughout the series with 23 and 37 in the previous games. Chamari Polgampola too also performed well with a the batscoring 29 in the first game and 47 in the third.

Lankan skipper Shashikala Siriwardena showed that she is someone who is among the runs and played a match saving innings in the second match (43). Suwini de Alwis is the leading wicket taker in the tournament so far and she will be a great asset to the Lankan team and is expected to perform well in this game too..

Chitral Mendis, the Sri Lankan coach stated that the Lankan women learnt from their mistakes and made a comeback at the second game. “Our defeat in the first game was a blessing for us to win the other two matches”.

“Our team gets very less exposure to the international arena when it comes to women’s cricket. It is very important for us to gain the best out of this tournament before the Women’s cricket world cup to be held in Australia next year” added Mendis.

Sri Lankan women will meet the Windies today and tomorrow in their backyard, R. Premadasa Stadium where they usually have practice sessions very often. It will be a great advantage for them to play in a familiar place which can be considered as the series decider.
