On February 16, Sri Lanka will take on South Africa in the practice match that will be played on Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide. While both the teams are guilty of not making it big in the ICC Women’s World T20 over the last six editions, this time around they will look to pull a rabbit out of their hats to change the fortunes. While Sri Lanka will look to dominate with their power-packed batting, South Africa will make sure that their pace battery curbs the Lankan enthusiasm. With less than a week to go for the mega event to kick start, both, Sri Lanka and South Africa will look to get their combinations right. Over the last six editions of Women’s World T20, the two sides have met thrice, with the Proteas punching their weight above the Lankans with a 2-1 lead.
