Match Preview

SL-W vs MAL-W: The 14th match of the Womens Asia Cup T20 2022 will be played between Sri Lanka Women and Malaysia Women. The game will be played on the 8th of October 2022 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Bangladesh.

After losing the opening game to India, the Sri Lankan women bounced back quickly and won two consecutive games. They maintain their position significantly in the top four at the points table. The bowlers did a fair job in the previous game against Thailand. Additionally, Sri Lankan opener, Harshitha Madavi, scored a terrific knock of 81 off 69 deliveries.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Women are winless in this tournament so far. They played four games and lost all of them. Firstly, they were unlucky against India as they did not get a full 20-over game. Secondly, in the previous fixture against Bangladesh, the batters were stashed like a pack of cards. In response to the target of 129, the Malaysian women were bowled out for a mere 41 runs. The gates to the semi-finals are closing in on them.

Pitch Details for SL-W vs MAL-W

The pitch at Sylhet has produced low-scoring games in this tournament. This game will have the same fate. Weather will be gloomy with fair chances of rain disruption. The spinners will get a good amount of turn and uneven bounce. As a result, the batters need to play spin safely. Bowling first is certainly the best option on this track.
