Chamari Athapaththu will look to put the recent loss to Pakistan behind him. We’ve seen this script before when a team’s batting collapsed in big games. Athapaththu enjoys leading the side in front, and she must inspire confidence and reach the final for the first time since 2008.
Harshitha Madavi has been in good form and will need to set up a big opening wicket stand with Chamari Athapaththu. The rest of the batting lineup has struggled, and they will need runs from Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, and Anushka Sanjeewani to win this game. In the lower middle order, Malsha Shehani and Oshadi Ranasinghe must add quick runs.
For the team to be in a comfortable position in this game, Oshadi Ranasinghe and Sugandika Kumari must deliver early blows. Achini Kulasuriya has caused problems for Pakistanis in the past, and the same is expected of her in this game. As the Pakistanis have depth in their batting, Inoka Ranaweera, Kavisha Dilhari, and Athapaththu must contribute with tight spells.
Chamari Athapaththu(c), Harshitha Madavi, Hasini Perera, Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, Anushka Sanjeewani(w), Malsha Shehani, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Sugandika Kumari, Inoka Ranaweera, Achini Kulasuriya, Tharika Sewwandi, Madushika Methtananda, Rashmi Silva, Kaushani Nuthyangana
