Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 17

Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 17 by 11ic

Sri Lanka Women will take on a face-to-face game in Match 17 against Bangladesh Women in Women’s Asia Cup 2022. In the points table, Sri Lanka Women moved up to third place with this thrilling win over the hosts. With this win, they have amassed eight points in the competition. It increases their chances of making the semi-finals with the win. In the meantime, Bangladesh Women occupy the fifth spot. The Lankan team defeated Thailand Women in a close fight after they had a very good chance to displace Thailand Women. Thus, they could not add more points to their tally, and their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages were severely diminished.

Despite the rain Sri Lanka Women performed well in match 17 and won the match by 3 runs (D/L method). It was an unlucky loss for Bangladesh as they were forced to chase a target of 41 off 7 overs after DLS revised it to 41. The revised target led Bangladesh to lose 7 wickets because they had to just hit it without thinking. Rather than directly to the fielders, they are still batting poorly, since slogging also means slogging it into gaps. Since Sri Lanka would have had to defend a total below 100 in 20 overs, DLS gave them 41 to defend in 7 overs, making Rain the real Player of the Match. Despite the pressure, they got a lot of wickets, not to take anything away from Ranaweera, who changed the game with her 3 wickets over and 4 wickets in all. Her bowling was brilliant, tossing it up and inviting the batters to attack. Lanka also got 2 run outs thanks to Ranasinghe's wicket.
