Sri Lanka Women 97 (Marsh 2-15) by 17 runs
Third Twenty20 International, Colombo

England Women wrapped up a 2-0 Twenty20 International series win over Sri Lanka with a 17-run success in the third and final match in Colombo.

The second game was abandoned due to bad weather and the tourists came out on top of a low-scoring end to the series when they defended their score of 114 all out by dismissing Sri Lanka for 97.

Laura Marsh (30), Fran Wilson (17) and Lydia Greenway (16) were the top run-scorers for England as Shashikala Siriwardene returned figures of two for 15.

Marsh would then match those figures and Danielle Wyatt took two for 18 as England hit back to bowl out Sri Lanka in exactly 20 overs.

Inoka Galagedara made 28 but lacked support as the Sri Lankans lost eight wickets for the addition of 47 runs following a steady start.

England won the opening match in the series by eight wickets.
