SL-W Team News

Sri Lanka Women will look to ride on their momentum in the T20I series. The team will be high on confidence after a comprehensive 3-0 win in the T20I series. Historically, Sri Lanka Women have a poor record against West Indies Women, losing eight out of the last 10 games, however, the series will give them a good chance of pulling things back.

SL-W Team Batting

Chamari Attapathu, Vishmi Gunaratne and Hashita Madavi will be the key batters for Sri Lanka. Chamari and Gunaratne had a great series for Sri Lanka, with both scoring 130 and 134 runs respectively, including a fifty each. Nilakshi de Silva also had a decent series and scored 77 runs, including a fifty. 

SL-W Team Bowling

The bowling will rest on Sugandika Kumari, Kavisha Dilhari and Chamari Attapattu. Attapattu is a great bowler in shorter formats. She keeps things tight thus gets a lot of wickets. She had a decent ODI series and bagged four wickets. Same goes with Sugandika and Kavisha who took five and seven wickets in ODI series.

SL-W Team Form

Sri Lanka women have not played a lot of T20I cricket against top teams. They last featured T20 World Cup qualifier and emerged victorious.

WI-W Team News

West Indies women came in the series as favourites but were hammered by the hosts. However, then team missed their captain Hayley Matthews for the last two games. The return of Matthews for the T20I series will be a massive boost for West Indies and the team will look for a turnaround in the shorter formats.

WI-W Team Batting

Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbell and Stafanie Taylor will be key batters. West Indies underperformed with the bat in the ODI series and the T20I series will present them with another opportunity to show their class. All three are class batters and match winners on their day     .

WI-W Team Bowling

The bowling attack has struggled on this tour. West Indies will need good spells from Chinelle Henry and Shamilia Connell with the new ball. Matthews will look to keep the scoring rate in check in middle overs in addition to picking key wickets.

WI-W Team Form

West Indies last T20I series was against Pakistan where the team registered a comprehensive win by 4-1 margin.

🏆 SL Women vs WI Women Prediction

Sri Lanka will start the game as favourites. The hosts were brilliant the ODI series and registered a 3-0 win. Sri Lanka will look to do the same in T20Is, however,  West Indies are likely to come back hard at them. West Indians are not great players of spin and Sri Lanka have a plethora of quality spinners in the team. If they can remove Matthews early, Sri Lanka can take a big lead in the match. For us, Sri Lanka are high favourites to win.
