CWG 2022: Chamari Athapaththu and her girls will be taking on one of the tournament favourites England and it will be one exciting match to watch! Even though England lost to Australia in the World Cup finals earlier this year but there isn’t denying the fact that England are in tremendous form. Just recently England brutally defeated SA Team 6-0 in ODI’s and T20’s while Sri Lanka on the other hand had a torrid run losing back-to-back white ball series vs Indian team. It will certainly be a big challenge to outrun England in Commonwealth Games and all eyes would be on them on how they would perform.
Sophie Ecclestone (England)
She is one of the Top Bowlers in ICC Rankings and moreover, she has been consistent off lately with 8 wkts in her last 5 matches. She also recently scored 33 runs off 12 balls in her last match and she will certainly be the wild card in today’s match.
Nat Sciver (England)
Every team needs that one experienced player on the side and skipper Nat Sciver with close to 200 International Games will play a vital cog in the tournament. She will lend stability to the team with her experience while she can also play the anchor’s role to ensure England manages a big total or chases down the total successfully.
Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka)
With 186 International games and close to 5000 International runs, Captain Chamari is the biggest of Sri Lanka if they need to stamp their presence in the Commonwealth Games.
Inoka Ranaweera (Sri Lanka)
Inoka has scalped 9wkts in her last 5 outings and a lot will depend on her to lead the bowling department.
England Probable XI
