Match Preview

IND-W vs SL-W: Womens Asia Cup T20 2022 is all set for the final showdown. The finals of the continental tournament will be played between the two Asian Giants, India Women and Sri Lanka Women. The game will commence on 15th October 2022 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. 

India registered a comfortable win against Thailand Women in the semi-finals to secure a berth for the finals. They put on a target of 149 on board, which proved to be way too much for Thailand. However, Thailand crumbled under pressure as they managed to put only 74 runs on board at the end of 20 overs. 

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Women won a last-ball thriller semi-final against Pakistan Women. It looked like a comfortable victory for Pakistan as they were required to run a ball at one point but the game turned out to be a massive heartbreak for them. They let it slip and fell short by just 1 run.

Match Predictions for IND-W vs SL-W

India has been impressive and consistent throughout the tournament. They started out as favorites and are very well deserving of the win. However, Sri Lanka has fought hard in this edition. They did defeat India in the opening game and threw their hearts out in the semi-finals. They are also strong contenders for the title. Overall, eyeing the form and team combinations, India Women are the most probable winners of this game and likely to get crowned as the ultimate Asian Champions.
