Clinching their 3rd victory in a row, India Women’s team became the first-ever to qualify for the semi-finals in the on-going Women’s World Cup. The Women in Blue are all set to fight-out their next battle against Sri Lanka in the 14th fixture of the series, scheduled to be held on February 29th at the Junction Oval in Melbourne. The game will set in motion at 9:30 AM IST.
India is riding high on success with 3 back-to-back wins and are leading the table with 6 points at a net run rate (NRR) of +0.633 from Group A. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has been having an off-season since the beginning as they have failed to win even a single game from the 2 matches they’ve played.
While India Women will look forward to continuing with their winning streak, the Sri Lanka Women will try their level best to open their account.
