Australia Women vs Sri Lanka Women
North Sydney Oval, Sydney
2:30 PM IST
September 30th, 2019
After a good start to the summer, Australian Women looks to seal yet another series win on Sunday as they face the Sri Lankans in the second T20-I. Sticking with the same side that featured in West Indies, Australia was utterly dominant with Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney revelling at the top of the order. They will once again be considered firm favourites for this game with the Sri Lankans not able to cope with the gulf of quality between the two sides. Chamari Athapaththu remains their only hope with bat and ball as Sri Lanka looks to give a good account of themselves on Sunday against the mighty Aussies.
Sunny weather with the temperature ranging around 18 degrees Celsius and no chances of rain is expected during the course of the encounter.
Another high-scoring game is expected with lots of runs and some turn on offer. Chasing would be the preferred option under lights with the pacers getting some swing as well.
Predicted Playing XI:
Sri Lanka Women
Beth Mooney and Chamari Athapaththu starred on a good batting track on Sunday. Both of them should be picked for this game as well along with the usual suspects, Meg Lanning and Alyssa Healy. The bowling unit is dominated by the Australians with only one Sri Lankan bowler, Ranasinghe picked in the side. Much is expected from the Australia Women all-round duo of Gardener and Perry, who can bring in fantasy points with both bat and ball.
1: Megan Schutt
2: Chamari Athapaththu
3: Alyssa Healy
