Sri Lanka Women’s T20 WC Strengths and Weakness: All of the teams are getting ready to give it their all as the Women’s T20 World Cup is here. The T20 world cup this year has ten teams playing. Today’s conversation will Centre on the Sri Lankan women’s team. So, let’s examine the team’s benefits and drawbacks.

Sri Lanka will find it difficult, and it will be a mountain struggle against these elite units, with teams like Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand, and South Africa in their group. If Sri Lanka wants to have a chance to win, they will need to be at their best each and every time they take the field.

Throughout the history of the ICC T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka has never been a dominant team. They will be hoping for a stronger showing because they have only 8 victories to their name in 27 games.

T20 Women’s World Cup: Now let’s look into the Strengths and Weaknesses of the Sri Lanka women’s team leading up to the T20 World Cup 

Speaking of the strengths of the Sri Lankan team, Chamari Athapaththu’s presence alone is sufficient to increase the team’s confidence. She is one of the important pieces because Sri Lanka’s chances depend on her leadership and capacity for accumulating runs. The team will be hoping for great starts as the top run-scorer in T20Is.

Inoka Ranaweera and Oshadi Ranasinghe, a solid combo who have recently contributed significantly to Sri Lanka’s outings, are on their team. They will be one of Sri Lanka’s main assets as it approaches the T20 World Cup in South Africa.

Not to be overlooked is the veteran Ama Kanchana, who has served the Sri Lankan squad for a very long time. Despite many setbacks in her professional life, she will be a crucial component of Sri Lanka’s success in the remaining rounds of the tournament.

Sri Lankan teams Problem, leading up to the T20 World Cup

With teams like Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand, and South Africa in their group, Sri Lanka will find it difficult, and winning against these elite squads will be a mountain to climb. Sri Lanka hasn’t yet established itself as a dominant team in an ICC T20 World Cup match. With only 8 victories in 27 games, they will be hoping for a better performance.

There is no room for mistakes as the competition is high and the team with the best performance can outlast the weak teams with ease. The same thing has happened in the recent past with Sri Lanka in the ICC Major tournaments. So they need to play in a calm and composed manner in order to progress into the final stages of the T20 World Cup.

Athapaththu and Gunaratne are explicitly needed for Sri Lanka’s batting to get going and score runs. If other players want to succeed at the 2023 World Cup, they must raise their game. And more over lack of game time among the member of the Sri Lanka team could also prove costly during the T20 World Cup.

However, we’ll have to wait and see how the Sri Lankan team does in South Africa at the Women’s T20 World Cup in 2023. Based on the facts, recent performance, and Sri Lanka’s competition, we forecast that they may not advance to the T20 World Cup’s knockout stages. But don’t be shocked if they fall into the group stage given how tough the opposition is.
