Match Preview

In the fifth match of the tournament, it is Bangladesh Women who are up against Sri Lanka Women.

While this is the first match for Bangladesh Women, Sri Lanka Women have already created an upset as they beat South Africa Women yesterday.

Furthermore, their skipper Chamari Athapaththu scored 68 from 50 balls which proved to be match-winning for her team.

On the other hand, Bangladesh Women will start as the underdogs in this match but have the power to upset Sri Lanka in their very first game.

Unfortunately, Bangladesh Women don’t have a very good batting lineup and will have to work on it.

Moreover, Sri Lanka Women proved everyone wrong on Friday and will be keen to beat Bangladesh Women tomorrow.

Therefore, this will be an interesting contest to watch out for tomorrow at Newlands.

Additionally, Nahida Akter is the best bowler for Bangladesh Women who has taken over 100 international wickets.

On the other hand, Inoka Ranaweera was the star for Sri Lanka Women when she grabbed 3/18 against South Africa Women in the first match.

Moreover, skipper Nigar Sultana has a top score of 113 not out in the Women’s T20 World Cup. Therefore, she will have a big role to play in tomorrow’s game.
