Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 4

Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 4 by 11ic

A match between Sri Lanka Women and United Arab Emirates Women played as the fourth match of the Women's Asia Cup T20 2022. The Lankans put 109 on the board in their opening match, helped by a 37 by Harshitha Madavi at the top of the order. Before rain arrived, UAE Women were at 20/1 at the end of four overs. They were required to score 66 runs off 11 overs, which was revised to 66 runs. Despite losing their nerves after the break, the Lankan bowlers bowled well after the break to restrict UAE to 54 and win the game by 11 runs. With their first win of the competition, Sri Lanka bounced back after losing their opening game. It is a victory that has moved them up the points table in fourth place after they have grabbed two crucial points. A close contest between the United Arab Emirates Women and Sri Lanka Women resulted in them placing behind the Lankan side in fifth place. Currently, they have a -0 net run rate.541 and the team will take their upcoming games as an opportunity to climb the ladder.

A 37-run innings from Harshitha Madavi helped them surpass the 100-run mark after the Lankan batters once again failed to contribute. Despite a rain break, UAE Women were not able to catch the revised total after the bowlers stepped up. As the defending champions clinched their first victory of the season with two wickets each, Kavisha Dilhari and Inoka Ranaweera took two wickets each. In contrast, UAE women would feel the rain was unfair to them. Prior to the rain, they were going well. However, it broke their momentum, which prevented them from being able to reach the revised target.

United Arab Emirates Women vs Sri Lanka Women

Sri Lanka Women won by 11 runs (D/L method)

This is a victory for the Sri Lankans. After a clinical bowling display by the UAE attack, their batters could only manage 109. The team was facing an uphill battle to turn around their tournament campaign after losing their first match to India. It was a flawless performance with the ball with the spinners taking center stage and the spinners were superbly supported on the field. While skipper Chaya Mughal tried to keep the team afloat, wickets continued to tumble and Theertha's wicket was the final nail in the coffin. Again, that's just hypothetical speculation, but at the end of the day, they're left to rue their luck given what could have been. There is no doubt that the UAE can be mighty proud of how they performed today. The sport is harsh at times, but the UAE can be mighty proud of how they ended up.
