Women’s T20 is going a notch higher when the scoreboard leader West Indies will lock horns with the third-ranked Sri-Lanka in a battle aimed to dismantle the best.
West Indies have been riding high after notching the top position in the Championship, but there have been many instances where the had a lucky escape. A decent batting has led them to make scores of 107/7 and 106/8 in the two games after batting first, but it’s their bowling that has helped them out for being getting dismantled. In the coming matches, their batting skills might create problems for them as its stupidity of relying on one set of skills.
On the contrary, Sri Lanka has developed an image of one of the rising teams in the championship. In their last outing, they defeated Asian Champions Bangladesh and register with their first win. With time falling short for them, they pacing up with great improvisation to make the most of the last opportunity to enter the semis.

This one here is difficult to predict with both the teams displaying signs of improvements but Sri Lanka has some greater chances of winning as the team has skills on point as compared to the West Indies.
