Women's World T20 Cup

11th Match: SL-W  vs AUS-W 



The 11th match of the Women’s World T20 Cup will be played between Sri Lankan women and Australian women in St George’s Park on Thursday, 16th February 2023, at 06:30 PM IST. SL-W and AUS-W are two unbeaten teams in Group A. For Sri Lankan Skipper Atapaththu, nothing has gone wrong in this tournament. Regarding the bowling department, Ranasinghe, Ranaweera, Sugandika Kumari, and the skipper deliver every time in both matches. The batters scored 129 runs in both games. 

Although their initial victory against South Africa should be credited to the bowlers, the hitters did show potential in the next match. While the captain's 68 off 50 balls in the first game enabled Sri Lanka to reach 129, other players like Hartshitha Madavi and Nilakshi de Silva also came up in the second game and helped the team win.

The openers will play a significant role in laying the proper groundwork as Sri Lanka now confronts a potent Australian bowling attack. Additionally, the middle overs will be vital for Gunaratne and Nilakshi.

Australia has won both games thus far, but they haven't seemed as dangerous as they often do. They had to chase down a 108-run mark against Bangladesh Women in 18 overs and two deliveries.

They met first against New Zealand in their first game and posted a competitive total. After that, however, they stuttered their way to a 173-run total. The good news is that all their major players are constantly communicating. Contributions by Alyssa Healey, Meg Lanning, Elysse Perry, and Ashleigh Gardner are also noteworthy.

Gardner has shown exceptional ball-handling skills. Along with the regular suspects Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown, Wareham, a right-arm leg break specialist, played well against Bangladesh.

Georgia Wareham, the top bowler for Australia Women, had 3 for 20 in her four overs. In this field, spinners will be essential, and Australia has many of them.

It isn't a very high-scoring stadium, despite a high-scoring game on this field during the SA20. Therefore, the batters must be careful and avoid losing momentum by giving away wickets.

The perfect batting order for Australia can adapt to any situation and post a score that would win the game.


Match Details

Match: SL-W vs AUS-W, 11th Match, Women's World T20 Cup

Venue: St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth


Pitch & Weather Report

At this location, there has only ever been one women's T20I, which Australia won after successfully chasing down a total. However, batting first would be the preferable choice, given how complex even a low total turned out to be.

The pitch has a spinner-friendly element. Although several hitters made entertaining runs in SA T20 League matches here, batting will be complex, and the pitch is more suited for bowlers. On the day of the game, a high of 23℃ is predicted with chances of light showers.

Match Prediction

Between the two undefeated teams, this Group A matchup could be intriguing. Both teams' bowlers have been flawless, and they will be in charge of the game. Given the current condition of both sides, even if it doesn't end up being a high-scoring match, it might still be an exciting contest. The top order of Sri Lanka has several solid batters who can compete with the Australian lethal bowling lineup. And in a run chase, their effective bowlers might be challenging for Australia. However, the current World T20 Cup winners have a far superior team and will begin as the favorites in our match prediction.

Australia will win the game, according to our prediction.
