Sri Lanka Collapse To Defeat In World Cup Warm-Up
Mumbai Combined XI 194-6 (Singh 50) beat
Sri Lanka Women 189 by four wickets
Women's World Cup warm-up, Mumbai
Sri Lanka Women suffered a dramatic collapse before being well beaten by a Mumbai Combined XI side in their first wramwarm-up match ahead of the 2013 World Cup.
They failed to recover from a position of 42 for six, eventually being dismissed for 189 and going down by four wickets.
Mohammad Sayyad picked up three for 23, Laxman Yadav two for 20 and Mukund Sardar two for 21 to leave Sri Lanka in disarray, although thanks to 38 from Chamani Seneviratna and 39 from Prasadani Weerakkody, they managed to give their bowlers something to work with.
Not enough, however, as 50 from Ashutosh Singh, 49 from Abhishek Desai and 34 from Vinay Mishra handed the Indian side victory in the 43rd over.
Sri Lanka take on South Africa in their next warm-up game tomorrow (29th January).
