SA-W Team News

After only losing their last WODI series 2-1 to Australia Women, South Africa Women will come into this match full of confidence against a side they have a very strong head to head record. Opening batter Laura Wolvaardt will once again captain the hosts.

SA-W Team Batting

Batting on a quick and bouncy track in East London, the South Africa Women batting line-up will certainly fancy their chances of either chasing down or posting a big score in this game. Wolvaardt is an accomplished player at the top of the order with Anneke Bosch and Marizanne Kapp both also capable of match-winning innings.

SA-W Team Bowling

With the ball, all-rounder Kapp will be a dangerous player to face on this pitch but we expect the biggest threat for the visiting batters to come from Nadine de Klerk and Masabata Klaas. Both bowl with good economy rates and will look to frustrate the batters.

SA-W Team Form

South Africa Women were heavily beaten in two of their last three WODIs but also recorded an impressive win over Australia Women in the same series.

SL-W Team News

Captain Chamari Athapaththu will lead the side once again on this tour as they get back into 50-over cricket for the first time since a 2-0 series defeat against England Women in September last year. Sri Lanka Women will hope to be competitive but expectations for a series victory are unlikely to be high.

SL-W Team Batting

Hasini Perera in the middle order, along with opener Athapaththu, are likely to be the key batting contributors for Sri Lanka Women. 23 year old batting all-rounder Kavisha Dilhari has also shown in glimpses that she can be a key player in this format.

SL-W Team Bowling

Although we expect the pitch to be far more conducive for the pace bowlers, Sri Lanka Women’s top performers with the ball are likely to be their spinners. They have variety in their attack but in Oshadi Ranasinghe and Inoka Ranaweera they have consistent bowlers who can keep batters quiet for long periods of time.

SL-W Team Form

Sri Lanka Women have won only one of their last four completed WODI fixtures.

Chamari Athapaththu (c), Anushka Sanjeewani (wk), Harshitha Samarawickrama, Imesha Dulani, Hasini Perera, Hansima Karunaratne, Kavisha Dilhari, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Udeshika Prabodhani, Achini Kulasuriya, Inoka Ranaweera

🏆 SA Women vs SL Women Prediction

Although they have gone through a slight transition period, South Africa Women still have an experienced side particularly in WODI cricket at home. We expect Sri Lanka Women to struggle with the pace of the pitch when batting and for South Africa Women to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
