Top Tournament Stats - Sri Lanka Women Tour of England, 2023
Current Form Sri Lanka Women:
Sri Lanka Women are currently ranked 8 in the ICC Women's T20I team rankings with a rating of 214.
Sri Lanka Women have been in an ordinary form in T20I cricket recently. Although they beat the visiting New Zealand side in the ODI series by 2-1, they lost against the visitors in the T20I series.
Sri Lanka Women had however won a 3 match T20I series against Bangladesh Women in May this year by 2-1.
Players to look out for:
1. Chamari Athapaththu - She is the leader of a pack who look hungry and wanting to win. She sets up an example at the top of the order for the remaining batters to follow. If Chamari Athapaththu gets going in the tour, England Women will find it hard to win easy games.
2. Oshadi Ranasinghe - She has been the best bowler for Sri Lanka Women in the past few T20I series they played. Ranasinghe can provide breakthroughs when her team needs the most.
Current Form England Women:
England Women are ranked number 2 in the ICC Women's T20I team rankings with a rating of 285.
England Women are in brilliant form in the shortest format of the game. They have recently beaten Australia Women in a 3 match T20I series by 2-1, which was part of the Ashes.
The girls are fresh and ready after the completion of The Hundred Women's, where they got good exposure to tense environments. England Women should get past the Sri Lankans easily.
Players to look out for:
1. Danielle Wyatt- She has performed very well in the recently concluded The Hundred Women's. Wyatt gives flying starts to England Women and is one of their most important batters in the shortest form of the game.
2. Lauren Bell - She has improved a lot in the last year or so. Bell has acquired many variations in her bowling. Lauren has a knack of picking up wickets when her team needs and she will play an important role for England Women in the upcoming matches.
