After an embarrassing clean sweep in ODI series, Sri Lankan Women still seems struggling and haven’t been able to find their right combination to beat England. Sri Lankan women have again been crushed out by English Women in the 1st T20, and now English Women would be wanting to wrap up the series by winning the next T20 match On Tuesday in Colombo.
Sri Lankan Women lacked in making most out of their home conditions, but English women seemed like they are more familiar to away conditions. Sri Lankan women managed to get a tiny total of 94/10 in 19 overs, whereas, English women stepped with no pressure and managed to reach the target in just 14.2 overs with the loss of 2 wickets.
There is no spark seen in Sri Lankan women, and they have the last chance to save themselves from embarrassment by winning their previous two T20 games. On the other hand, English Women would not give them a chance to stand on their feet and would be looking forward to wrapping up the entire series by winning the 2nd T20.
Not only Sri Lankan women, English team lead by Heather Knight had previously beaten India (3-0), whereas, talking about Sri Lankan women, the last T20 match they won against was with Pakistan back in 2014.
