After opting to bat first, Sri Lankan batters couldn’t take the spinners away at all. Ekta Bisht, Anuja Patil, Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav gave their best in restricting Sri Lanka to 107 in the must-win match. Ekta Bisht was the pick of the bowlers, she picked two wickets, and made two run-outs as well. For Sri Lanka Mendis at the top, scored 27 while Perera scored an unbeaten 46.

In response, Sri Lankan bowlers bowled well as Smriti, Kaur, Mithali found it difficult to score quick runs, as a result, the run-rate grew up, and the Sri Lankan bowlers would have thought that they had a chance when they removed Kaur as both Veda and Anuja were not in great touch.

Today it was completely a different knock from Veda as she stood there to drive India home save with an unbeaten 29 off 23, which was well supported by Anuja Patil’s 13 balls 16*.
