Match Prediction & Analysis - Reddy Anna

Sri Lanka Women will look to build on their momentum as they face West Indies Women in the first game of the three-match T20 series | Reddy Anna. Despite a 3-0 loss in the ODI series, Sri Lanka will be confident but wary of their poor T20 record against West Indies Women, having won only two of the last ten encounters. West Indies Women, known for their powerful hitters like Hayley Matthews and Shemaine Campbelle, will be eager to avenge their ODI defeat.

Teams Preview

Sri Lanka Women

Captain Chamari Athapaththu will be pleased with her team’s ODI performance but will need to address their T20 struggles against the Windies. Athapaththu, in good form, will aim to provide a solid start with Vishmi Gunaratne. The middle order, featuring Kavisha Dilhari and Nilakshi de Silva, must form crucial partnerships, while the lower order, including Hasini Perera and Anushka Sanjeewani, needs to contribute significantly. The bowling unit, led by Sugandika Kumari and Achini Kulasuriya, must deliver early breakthroughs and maintain pressure.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI: Chamari Athapaththu (c), Vishmi Gunaratne, Harshitha Samarawickrama, Hasini Perera, Kavisha Dilhari, Nilakshi de Silva, Anushka Sanjeewani (wk), Sugandika Kumari, Achini Kulasuriya, Udeshika Prabodhani, Sachini Nisansala

Sri Lanka Actual Playing XI: Vishmi Gunaratne, Nilakshi de Silva, Harshitha Madavi, Hasini Perera, Chamari Atapattu, Kavisha Dilhari, Sugandika Kumari, Kawya Kavindi, Inoshi Fernando, Kaushani Nuthyangana, Ama Kanchana

West Indies Women

After a disappointing ODI series, West Indies Women, led by Hayley Matthews, will seek redemption in their preferred T20 format. Matthews, expected to return from illness, needs to set the tone with opener Rashada Williams. The middle order, featuring Stafanie Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle, and Chedean Nation, must build solid partnerships. The lower middle order, with Aaliyah Alleyne and Afy Fletcher, should also perform well. The bowling attack, spearheaded by Chinelle Henry and Shamilia Connell, must improve, with support from Aaliyah Alleyne, Matthews, and Karishma Ramharack.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI: Hayley Matthews (c), Rashada Williams, Shemaine Campbelle (wk), Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Aaliyah Alleyne, Afy Fletcher, Karishma Ramharack, Shamilia Connell, Stafanie Taylor, Shabika Gajnabi

West Indies Actual Playing XI: Qiana Joseph, Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbelle, Stafanie Taylor, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Aaliyah Alleyne, Afy Fletcher, Zaida James, Karishma Ramharack, Shamilia Connell

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The weather in Hambantota is expected to be overcast with potential rain interruptions. The pitch at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium is flat, favoring batters with minimal assistance for fast bowlers. Spinners might find some turn, and a target of 150 runs is considered competitive.

Toss Prediction: To Bowl

Chasing has been the successful strategy at this venue. The captain winning the toss will likely opt to bowl first to take advantage of knowing the target.

Winning Prediction

Despite Sri Lanka Women’s recent ODI success, their T20 record against West Indies Women remains poor. West Indies’ strong batting lineup and depth make them favorites to win this game.
