Sri Lanka Women
With four points on the board and two wins from three games, Sri Lanka Women come into this clash in fourth place. They were beaten by India Women by 41 runs in Match 2 but have since beaten UAE Women by 11 runs (DLS) and Thailand Women by 49 runs.
Harshitha Samarawickrama (144 runs) is the second highest run scorer in the tournament with only Jemimah Rodrigues scoring more runs. Samarawickrama hit the top score in both of the last two games although it was Hasini Perera who impressed in the defeat to India Women with 30 runs from 32 balls.
There are four Sri Lanka Women’s bowlers who have taken three wickets across the competition so far. Achini Kulasurya returned the best figures against Thailand Women, taking 2-19, but it was off-spinner Kavisha Dilhari who led the attack against UAE Women with 2-7.
After an expected defeat to India Women, Sri Lanka Women are now targeting their third successive win of the campaign.
With zero wins and zero points from their opening four games in the 2022 Women’s Asia Cup, Malaysia Women are two points adrift at the bottom of the table. Across the four matches, they have lost by nine wickets, 30 runs (DLS), seven wickets and 88 runs.
Elsa Hunter (47 runs), captain Winifred Duraisingam (38 runs) and Mas Elysa (31 runs) are the three Malaysia Women’s players to have scored over 30 runs across the tournament so far. 17 year old Hunter began the competition with scores of 29 not out and one not out but has been dismissed for eight and nine in her last two.
Medium fast bowler Sasha Azmi has taken a wicket in both of her last two matches. She returned figures of 1-7 against UAE Women on Wednesday and 1-15 a day later in the defeat to Bangladesh Women. Duraisingam has taken 3-61 from four overs over the competition.
Malaysia Women were expected to be the weakest team in the tournament and will be looking to avoid their fourth defeat in a row.
