Sri Lanka women will commence their Women’s Asia Cup T20I campaign against India on October 01 at Sylhet District Stadium. After India, Sri Lanka is the second team to reach the final of Women’s Asia Cup the most number of times. Out of seven, the Islanders made it to four finals, however, failed to win even once. Sri Lanka had a disappointing outing in T20Is so far this year as it lost all three matches in the Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 in group stage and failed to advance to the next round. Before Commonwealth Games, Sri Lanka had already lost two T20 series to Pakistan in May by 3-0 and to India in June by 2-1. After men’s cricket team of Sri Lanka clinched the continental championship title weeks back, it surely would have uplifted the hopes of the women’s side to deliver with the same devotion.
