As the race to secure the top two spots in the Points table intensifies, India Women will clash against the Sri Lankan Women on Thursday. While India started their campaign with a bang, having defeated Malaysia and Thailand with ridiculous ease, they were caught napping against Bangladesh Women and suffered a seven-wicket drubbing.
Their opponents in Sri Lankan Women too had a great start to their campaign, having defeated Malaysia Women and Bangladesh, but came up against a rampaging Pakistani unit and subsequently losing the game by 23 runs.
With just two games remaining in the league-stage for every team, expect IN-W vs SL-W to be a pulsating clash.
