Match 3 – Australia Women v/s Sri Lanka Women.
Time-9:40 AM IST.
Venue – North Sydney Oval, Sydney
The third and final T20 between Australia women and Sri Lanka women will be played on 2nd of October, Wednesday. Australia women lead the T20 series 2-0 with one game to go, they have already won the series and continue to keep their winning streak intact. The second game of the series was a one-sided affair. Winning the toss, the Sri Lankan captain opted to bat first but this decision proved to be wrong as Sri Lankan women’s team could just manage 84 runs from their quota of 20 overs. Shashikala Siriwardene’s 19 runs being the highest score of their innings. The Australian bowlers bowled beautifully with Ellyse Perry being the pick of the bowlers for Australia.
In reply to Sri Lanka’s total of 84 runs, the Australian women chased down the target with more than 10 overs to spare while losing just one wicket. Australian women will now go into the third T20 and look to capitalize on this winning momentum. Sri Lankan women’s team, on the other hand, will look to improvise their performance and come up to avoid and whitewash.
