Mahika Guar Dharnidharka was the pick of the bowlers for the UAE-W. Chasing a lowish total of 110, UAE-W did not get off to a good start.

The match was stopped due to bad weather, there was a lightning strike and the umpires decided that it was unsafe for players and took them off the ground.

The game resumed after an hour, Sri Lankan women fought back well and won the match with a narrow margin of 11 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method.

India Women vs UAE Women Pitch Report-

The pitch at the SICS Ground 2 tends to be slightly slow and low, the surface here has assisted spinners while the batters have found it difficult to score runs. The team who wins the toss will likely choose to bat first considering it’s a day game and with the sun beating down, the pitch will only get slower as the game progresses.
