Preview:

The Indian women’s team are set to kick off a new era as they are set to travel to Sri Lanka for a six-game limited overs series. The Women in Blue have decided to put together a young squad as they look to build a core for their future. This tour also marks the first occasion when the Indian team will play after a disappointing ICC World Cup at the start of the year. 

Pitch Report:

The strip in Dambulla has the reputation of being a bowling-friendly pitch which generally produces lower batting scores. In the ODI games played here, the score of 300 has been reached only three times as the average first innings score of 216. So the team that will win the toss should decide to bowl first. 

Analysis:

The Indian team comes back after a great domestic season where the board has found some incredible young players. This will also be the first time they will play international cricket without their legend Mithali Raj who announced retirement from the sport recently. The team has solid players in all categories and emerges as favourites. 

Whereas the hosts have come into the series after a tough defeat against Pakistan in June. Sri Lanka team lost the T20I and ODI series by 0-3 and 1-2, respectively. 

Probable Playing XIs

India:

Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia (Wk), Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Pooja Vastrakar, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh.

Sri Lanka:

Chamari Atapattu (C), Hasini Perera, Harshitha Madavi, Nilakshi de Silva, Anushka Sanjeewani(wk), Kavisha Dilhari, Ama Kanchana, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Inoka Ranaweera, Sugandika Kumari, Achini Kulasuriya

Match Prediction:

Conclusion:

Despite the absence of veteran Mithali Raj, the Indian team has a slight edge as they have a lot of quality players across the board in comparison to the hosts. The Indian batting has some of the top batters in the world with a slow bowling attack that has combined to pick up wickets, especially in spin-friendly conditions.
