After an important win over Bangladesh, Sri Lanka suffered back to back blows against India and Pakistan, minimizing their chances of making it to the all-important finals of the ongoing Women’s Twenty20 Asia Cup in Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia.
To make it to the final, Sri Lanka will have to beat Thailand and hope for a miracle. Even then, they’ll have to do it by a big margin and place their bets on the two games to follow.
The lady lions will want Bangladesh to lose to Malaysia and India to beat Pakistan or vise versa. Regardless, the winner in the India-Pakistan game must come out on top by some big margin.
SL vs BAN Match 2
Sri Lanka bowled Bangladesh out for just 63 in the 19th over of the innings. Only three Bangladesh batsman got through to double figures. Kumari picked 3 for 17 for the lady lions.
In response, a 39 run partnership between Mendis and Hansika steered SL to an easy 6 wicket win.
Sugandika Kumari was adjudged player of the match.
SL vs MLS Match 6
Top order contributions helped SL post 136 for 3 in the given 20 overs. Mendis made 36 in just 29 with 4 fours and a six. Malaysia only made 46 for the loss of 7 wickets in 20.
Nilakshi De Silva was announced player of the match for her impressive spell of bowling 3/13.
SL vs PAK Match 7
Bismah Mahroof’s 60 lifted Pakistan to 136 for 4 in 20 overs. Nahida Khan contributed with 38 in 34. Sri Lanka were on top after an impressive 48 run partnership between Mendis and Hansika. But, Nida Dar’s five-for restricted the lady lions to 113, 23 runs short of a win.
SL vs IND Match 12
Hasini Perera’s 46 in 43 supported by a useful 27 from Mendis gave Sri Lanka hope but the rest of the batters failed to get to double figures. As a result, the lady lions were reduced to 107 for 7 in 20.
India, with 7 wickets in hand, won the game quite comprehensively to retain top position.
