Sri Lanka Women’s National Cricket Team won the toss and opted to bat first in the match. The decision turned out to be a horrible one for the side as they were restricted to 65/9.

India’s Renuka Singh bowled an exceptional spell and she had bowling figures of 3-1-5-3. Also, Sneh Rana and Rajeshwari Gayakwad bowled brilliantly and bagged 2 wickets each.

Chasing the mediocre target, star opener Smriti Mandhana provided her side with a terrific star. India lost quick wickets of Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodrigues in the 4th and 5th over respectively.

However, Smriti Mandhana kept batting exceptionally and smashed brilliant 51* runs off 25 balls, including 6 fours and 3 sixes. Also, skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who is the most capped T20I player in Women’s cricket, chipped in with a decent 11 runs contribution to help India claim a dominant win.

With the win over Sri Lanka, India Women’s National Cricket Team continued their dominance in the Asian tournament and won their 7th Asia Cup title in 8 editions.
