After the conclusion on 3 matches ODI series, both the teams have now shifted their focus towards T20I series. The 3 matches T20I series starts tomorrow (March 28) at Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo. The first match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Local. Pakistan Women whitewashed Sri Lanka Women by 3-0 in the ODI series. Let’s see whether the change in format changes the fortune of hosts or not?
Pakistan women is expected to play with the same playing combination as there are not many changes in their ODI and T20 squad.
Sri Lanka might try a different combination to secure their first win in the tour. They might make one or two changes. However, there is no official statement yet.
