Ruthless England Women will come out looking to complete the 3-0 sweep over Sri Lanka Women when the two sides meet at the Air Force Ground in Katunayake on Thursday. The tourists have been too good for the hosts in the two games played so far, and that could well be the case in the third straight game if the Lankans do not produce a special.
In the second ODI on Monday, England cruised to a 6 wicket victory to wrap the series with one game remaining. It was first the clinical bowling performance from the trio of Hartley, Shrubsole and Marsh and later it was the batters Jones, Beaumont and Winfield who took the game away from Sri Lanka without much of a hassle.
Where – Air Force Ground, Katunayake
When – 21 March at 9:50 AM IST
In the last game, Sri Lanka Women brought in Perera and Prabodhini in place of Fernando and Kulasuriya. A couple of changes can be expected again.
England rested Katherine Brunt and gave Hartley game time. They can continue to test their bench.
