SL-W vs WI-W Match Prediction & Analysis - Reddy Anna

The third and final T20I of the three-match series between Sri Lanka Women and West Indies Women will be played at Hambantota on June 28, 2024. After losing the first game, West Indies Women came back strongly to win the second match, making this third T20I a decider.

Historically, Sri Lanka Women have struggled against West Indies in T20Is. However, playing at home, they have a great chance to win the series against a formidable West Indies side. Despite the challenge, Sri Lanka will be hopeful based on their performance in the 1st T20I.

Teams Preview

Sri Lanka Women

Sri Lanka Women started the series with a bang, winning the first game against their strong West Indian counterparts. Star performers Chamari Athapaththu (4 wickets for 29 runs) and Inoshi Priyadharshani (3 wickets for 28 runs) restricted West Indies Women to 134 for 8. Sri Lanka chased down the target with 8 balls and 4 wickets to spare.

In the rain-affected second match, Sri Lanka Women made 89 for 4 in 15.2 overs. They then lost by 6 wickets, unable to defend their total.

Over-dependence on Chamari Athapaththu is a concern for Sri Lanka Women, and winning the decider without her contribution looks difficult. Players like Vishmi Gunaratne and Inoshi Priyadharshani must step up for Sri Lanka Women to win the series at home.

Key Players: Chamari Athapaththu, Vishmi Gunaratne, Inoshi Priyadharshani, Harshitha Samarawickrama

Predicted Playing XI: Chamari Athapaththu (c), Harshitha Samarawickrama, Vishmi Gunaratne, Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, Kaushani Nuthyangana (wk), Hasini Perera, Ama Kanchana, Sugandika Kumari, Inoshi Priyadharshani, Kawya Kavindi

West Indies Women

West Indies Women boast a good record against Sri Lanka Women. In the last five head-to-head encounters, West Indies Women have won 4 matches, compared to Sri Lanka Women's 1 win, which came in the first match of this series.

After a 4-wicket loss in the first game, West Indies Women came back stronger in the second T20I to level the series. Chasing 99 (DLS method) to win in the rain-affected game, West Indies Women reached the target with 6 wickets and 5 balls to spare, thanks to contributions from Hayley Matthews and Stafanie Taylor.

Similar to Chamari for Sri Lanka, West Indies Women have relied heavily on Hayley Matthews’ all-round performance. With 573 runs and 13 wickets in the last 10 games, as long as she is supported well by players like Shemaine Campbelle and Afy Fletcher, West Indies Women should win the series decider against Sri Lanka Women.

Key Players: Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbelle, Afy Fletcher, Stafanie Taylor

Predicted Playing XI: Hayley Matthews (c), Stafanie Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle (wk), Chedean Nation, Aaliyah Alleyne, Chinelle Henry, Afy Fletcher, Zaida James, Qiana Joseph, Karishma Ramharack, Shamilia Connell

Pitch and Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions: The weather at Hambantota will be breezy, with periods of sun and clouds. It will be an excellent day for cricket, with some help for bowlers under the clouds. The temperature will be around 33°C.

Pitch Report: The venue for this match is Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota. Established in 2009, the stadium has a capacity of 35,000 and a slightly grassy pitch that may help the seamers.

Toss: The pitch at Hambantota is not a very high-scoring venue. Initially, there’s help for the bowlers, making them most potent in the initial phase of the game. The first two matches of the series went to the chasing teams at this venue. The team winning the toss should bowl first here.

Winning Prediction

With the series on the line, Sri Lanka Women would fancy their chances at home against a strong West Indies Women’s team. However, given the recent head-to-head history between the teams, West Indies Women have a better chance of trumping Sri Lanka Women in the series decider at Hambantota.

Prediction: West Indies Women will defeat Sri Lanka Women. Credit-
