The final Group A match of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2016 between South Africa Women and Sri Lanka Women at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Monday (March 28) may have been a dead rubber, but keeping with the trend of the tournament, it went right down to the wire as both teams fought hard. Finally, Sri Lanka kept its cool better in a battle of nerves to pull off a rather spectacular ten-run win. In a match where momentum shifts were a dime a dozen, Chamari Atapattu, the Sri Lanka captain, led her team with a fantastic all-round display under pressure. Her half-century guided the team to 114 for 7 before the spinners, Atapattu included, restricted South Africa to 104 for 7. In pursuit of… Read More →

Match Report It was the green and gold of Australia’s women that shone brightest on Holi, the festival of colour, as Sri Lanka Women was left feeling as blue as the strip it wore on Thursday (March 24).

When Chamari Atapattu, the Sri Lankan captain, won the toss and chose to bat first, she would have been fully aware of the difficulty of the task at hand. Things appeared to be falling into a familiar pattern when Yashoda Mendis smacked the second ball of the innings to mid-on, the… Read More →
