Sri Lanka Women will host India Women in a limited-overs series, starting June 23. The three-match T20I series will be followed by a three-match ODI rubber. All the T20Is will be played at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla, while the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele will host the ODIs.
Chamari Athapaththu will lead the hosts. Sri Lanka toured Pakistan for a limited-overs tour but were whitewashed in the three-match T20I series and were beaten 2-1 in the ODI series. They will look to turn the tables against India at home.
The visitors will be led by Harmanpreet Kaur. She has been appointed the full-time captain after Mithali Raj announced her retirement. This will be India’s first assignment after the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand.
They have some exciting players in their ranks and will be eager to kickstart the series on a winning note.
