SA-W Team News

South Africa Women will be looking for a better performance against Sri Lanka Women after losing the previous T20I series to Australia Women. In fact, the hosts have not won a series for quite some time at home. Before the defeat to Australia, South Africa drew series against Bangladesh and New Zealand women.

SA-W Team Batting

Laura Wolvaardt, Marizanne Kapp and Tazmin Brits will be the main batters for South Africa women. Kapp and Wolvaardt come into the series after decent performance in the Women Premier League while playing for Gujarat Giants and Delhi Capitals respectively. Tazmin Brits, on the other hand, was South Africa women’s top batter in the previous T20I series against Australia.

The bowling will rest on Marizanne Kapp, who is one of the best and most experienced bowlers in this format of the game. Along with her, Ayabonga Khaka is a very good fast bowling option South Africa have. If the conditions are helpful, she can be dangerous. Also, Masabata Klaas is a good bowler and took the most wickets for South Africa women against Australia Women.

SL-W Team News

Sri Lanka have done well away from home in last few years. They won a T20I series in England and also reached the final of the Asian Games. They’d fancy their chances against South Africa women who have not been at their best in recent times.

SL-W Team Batting

Chamari Attapattu, Hashita Madavi and Nilakshi de Silva can be backed to perform well. Attapattu is by far the best batter for Sri Lanka women and if the visitors have to pull off an upset, she will have to perform well. Hashita Madavi is another top batter in the team. She has made a name for herself due to her aggressive batting approach. If she stays at the crease for long, she can do some serious damage. Same can be said about Nilakshi, who has scored nearly 900 runs in T20Is.

SL-W Team Bowling

Attapattu is a gem of a player and thus will be vital with the ball as well. Inoka Ranaweera is also a great bowler for Sri Lanka and has taken 88 wickets in her T20I career. Kavisha Dilhari can also be backed to perform well for the hosts. She has taken 29 wickets for the team in T20Is.

SL-W Team Form

Sri Lanka women last featured in the Asian Games where they reached the final but lost to India women.

🏆 SA Women vs SL Women Prediction

South Africa women have been tested at home in recent times. They lost a game to Bangladesh women as well, who are not known to perform well away from home. However, the hosts did miss a few big guns in the previous series’ who have returned to the side for the upcoming series. South Africa women should have no trouble in winning the match against Sri Lanka women.
