Chamari Athapaththu: Chamari Athapaththu averages 22.60 in the WT20Is and has a lot of experience. She only stayed on the crease for a few minutes in the first game, but she batted brilliantly in the second T20I. She hit 55 runs off 31 balls in that game to help her team win.
Kavisha Dilhari: Kavisha Dilhari is an extremely fresh and seasoned bowler from the squad who has been highly effective in the contest, allowing very few runs and averaging 5.83 in the series thus far. She has three wickets in two games and will be a challenge to the England hitters.
