West Indies Women Chase it Down with Ease

After the rain interrupted the game, the target and overs were set according to the DLS Method, where the overs were reduced to 15 and the target was set to 99. Now with 99 to chase in 15 overs the West Indies openers set the tone with wonderful strokes. Early on in the innings, both openers scored 44 runs and gave the perfect start for the West Indies Women.

Sri Lankan women tried their best to restrict West Indies Women but only Chamari Athapaththu, Sachini Nisansala, and Kavisha Dilhari were able to pick up wickets, and that to one wicket from these three players. The lack of a proper total on the board certainly affected the run chase for Sri Lanka.


Conclusion: West Indies Women beat Sri Lanka Women by 6 Wickets (DLS Method)

In a game full of ups and downs the Caribbean women managed to pull off a victory and stay alive in the series. Now the three-match T20I series is level at 1-1 and the final match will decide who will win the T20I series. West Indies women have already lost the ODI series to Sri Lanka women and that’s why the West Indies women will be looking to win this final match and claim the final T20I.
