After a disappointing end to their World Cup campaign, the Indian Women’s cricket team is all geared up for their first international assignment. The Women in Blue are touring Sri Lanka for six white-ball games (3 T20Is and 3 ODIs) the first of which is all set to be played on 23 June. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led team will play Sri Lanka in the 1st T20I on Thursday at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium. It will be interesting to see how this new Indian team fares up on their first away assignment in a while.
There are a few players with a big reputation that will have all the attention when the game is played on Thursday. From the Indian camp, Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Deepti Sharma will be the players in focus. Meanwhile, from the hosts’ camp, captain Chamari Athapaththu will also have the attention of the fans. She can also be a good pick for the fantasy.
In bowling, India’s Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, and Poonam Yadav will also be key players to be picked in the fantasy team. From the Sri Lankan team, Oshadhi Ranasinghe and Sugandika Kumari can also be valuable picks for the fantasy team.
