West Indies women’s bowled an aggressive 15 overs in their T20 match played at R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium this morning as Sri Lankan lasses failed to over come them.
The batting, fielding and bowling of the Windies completely overshadowed the Sri Lankan women in the 2nd of the T20 matches.
Sri Lankan team, who tasted defeat in the first match, won the toss and decided to bat first but the Windies women prevented them from making a single run in the first and the second overs. The opening batswomen Chamari Athapaththu and Lasanthi Madushani failed in a good partnership while Lasanthi missed her chance to score runs as she was removed for 0.
For the dismissal of Lasanthi, Ama Kanchana came into bat and scored 6 runs but in the third over Tremayne Smartt came to the fore. Sri Lankan lasses had no chance to score runs in front of the amazing fielding of the Windies as Chamani Athapaththu, Deepika Rasangika and Eshani Lokusooriya were beaten for 8, 8 and 9 runs.
Eshani Lokusooriya an innovator possessed by the Sri Lankan team had time to score runs but Subriana Munroe managed to defeat her by catching what was a near six. Captain Shshikala Siriwardane added 9 runs and was beaten by the counterparts on her way for another run in the 15th over.
When the scoreboard read 15 overs, Indies had limited the runs of the Sri Lanka for 51. The 16th over was also ended in favor of the visiting women as Sripali Weerakkody was defeated at 3 through a run out. S. Munroe, one of the best bowlers in the West Indies team removed Dilani Manodara in the 18th over caught by Shakera Selman.
Sri Lankan team managed only to score 73 runs for a loss of 8 wickets in their 20 overs
Dendra Dottin and Kysia Knight opened the T20 of their inning scoring 14 runs in the first over. Eshani Lokusooriya managed to remove Dottin at the beginning over and also was brilliant to beat new batswoman Juliana Nero for no run in her first bowl.
Shashikala Siriwardane took out Kycia Knight in the 11th over as she scored 21 runs. West Indies Captain Meressa Aguilleria had a superb six in the 12th over but Sri Lankan captain, Shahikala Siriwardane managed to have her out in the 15th over. Shanel Daley along with Shaquana Quintyne remained unbeaten to score 1 and 24 runs and managed to defeat Sri Lanka in the 15th over.
