England vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI: Key Players
Charlie Dean: In the previous game, Charlie Dean decimated the Sri Lankan batting order, taking 2 wickets for 12 runs and bowling 3 first-inning overs. She also secured the valuable wicket of Chamari Athapaththu, the rival team’s captain. Sri Lanka must devise a successful strategy to deal with her in order to win the game.
Kate Cross: In the lengthier versions of the game, pace bowler Kate Cross is a vital asset for England. She has taken 79 wickets in 59 ODI games, with a high of 5/24. In contrast to the first ODI, where she had no wickets, the second saw her claim one for 35 runs. For England to win the series, she will need to play well in the match.
Nilakshi de Silva: Nilakshi de Silva is a key member of the Sri Lankan team despite being out for a duck in the first ODI and sitting out the second. She has 520 runs and a top score of 48 not out in 31 games. She is a fantastic player, and Sri Lanka will be looking to her for a high score to win the match.
Inoka Ranaweera: On this tour, Inoka Ranaweera has consistently performed well for Sri Lanka. She grabbed 1 wicket for 15 runs in the first game, though Sri Lanka was unable to bowl in the second ODI. She’ll be a player to keep an eye on.
