South Africa Women vs Sri Lanka Women, 11th Match:

The 11th match of the women’s T20 competition in Commonwealth Games 2022 will see South Africa take on Sri Lanka. The two teams will meet at the Edgbaston for this Group B fixture on Thursday.

Both South Africa and Sri Lanka women have played two matches each in the competition and have lost both, ruling themselves out of semifinals contention. South Africa lost by 26 runs in their last fixture against England women. Shabnim Ismail and Nonkululeko Mlaba bowled brilliantly, combining 3 for 49 in eight overs between them but the lack of support meant they conceded 167/5. Chasing the target, they had steady partnerships at the top with Anneke Bosch scoring 32 off 28 and Tazmin Brits making 37-ball 38. However they couldn’t quite up the scoring rate. Laura Wolvaardt remained unbeaten on 41 off 33.

Sri Lanka women are coming off a 45-run beating at the hands of New Zealand in their last fixture. Inoka Ranaweera and Oshadi Ranasinghe claimed 5 for 61 in their eight overs combined but Sri Lanka still conceded 147/7. In response, they lost five wickets for 32 runs in 8.4 overs. Nilakshi de Silva fought a lonely battle with 36 off 35 as they were eventually restricted to 102/8.

Anneke Bosch: All-rounder, South Africa

She also has eight wickets to her name with medium pace bowling. Bosch scored 32 in the last game against England and picked a wicket. She can be a good C/VC option, priced at 8.5 credits.

Nilakshi de Silva has been the only batter to have occupied the crease for a decent time in the ongoing tournament. She scored 25 in the first game and followed it up with 36 against New Zealand. Overall, she only averages 14 but recent form makes her a good pick. She will cost you 8.5 credits.

Laura Wolvaardt: Batter, South Africa
