An easy win against Thailand saw the Sri Lankan women’s team through to the all-important super six round of the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier last evening. The home team completed a comprehensive 7 wicket win at the Mercantile Cricket Association Ground, Colombo.
Up front, Thailand failed to make use of the batting conditions as wickets fell at regular intervals. Boochatham made her half century but the lack of support from the other end restricted the team to 122 in 50 overs.
In response, the Sri Lankan top order cruised through to the target in the 35th over of the game.
PRCS Kumarihami was announced player of the match.
Team to qualify for the knockouts – Sri Lanka women, India women, Ireland women, Bangladesh women, Pakistan women, South Africa women.
