It was a shame to see the first game of the three-match series being abandoned due to rain. When rain halted play, the game was evenly balanced, with Sri Lanka having 152 runs on the board for losing six wickets. Both teams will aim to take an unassailable lead in this game as it holds great significance for their qualification into the 2025 World Cup.
Bangladesh Women will be under pressure in this game. The side has struggled away from home and has won only once in the last eight games. They will look to shed their image of being poor tourists. Sri Lanka Women need to come up with a good performance as they failed to build partnerships in the last game.
Chamari Athapaththu would look for partnerships between her batters in this game. They lost wickets at regular intervals in the last game. Athapaththu, who is one of the most talented players in the world, shall look to lead from the front and take her side to a lead in the series.
Harshitha Samarawickrama and Vishmi Gunaratne must set up a big partnership in the last game after falling cheaply in the last one. Chamari Athapaththu played well, and she will look to anchor the innings in the middle order and score runs with Imesha Dulani and Nilakshi de Silva. Prasadani Weerakkody, Kavisha Dilhari, and Oshadi Ranasinghe strengthen this batting line-up.
The side will need a good show with the new ball from Kawya Kavindi and Oshadi Ranasinghe. Kavisha Dilhari and Inoka Ranaweera will enjoy bowling in these conditions and must do well in this game. The side will also expect good spells from Udeshika Prabodhani and Athapaththu to keep the Bangladeshis to a small total.

Nigar Sultana would like to draw positives from the last game, where her bowlers troubled the Sri Lankans. It will be a tough battle against the hosts as they don't have a great record as a touring side. Sultana would like her players to approach this game with a positive mind and do well.
Murshida Khatun and Shamima Sultana must see off the new ball and set up a big opening wicket stand. They will need runs in the middle order from Nigar Sultana Fargana Hoque and Sobhana Mostary in the middle order. Down the order, Lata Mondal and Ritu Moni must add runs.
Sultana Khatun and Jahanara Alam did well with the new ball in the last game, and they will aim for early wickets. Nahida Akter was brilliant, and she will look to rouble the hosts in the middle overs with Fahima Khatun and Lata Mondal. All of them must bowl well, as the side lacks bowling options.

There is a forecast for overcast skies and rain on May 2, and batting conditions shall be challenging. We expect bounce and seam movement on this track, and batters must approach the innings cautiously. The side batting first shall be happy with 250 runs.
P Sara Oval, Colombo, has short square boundaries, and the outfield is quick. Batters can play their strokes as the wicket has even pace and bounce. Fast bowlers do well at this venue under overcast conditions. It has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners, and they get the ball to turn on this track.
The weather conditions will assist the bowlers at the start of this game. Given the weather forecast, the side chasing the score will have an advantage in a rain-curtailed game. Hence, the side winning the toss will opt to bowl first.
Both sides had their positives in the last game. There will be more pressure on Bangladesh Women to do well as they don't have a great record outside their backyard. Sri Lanka plays at home, and they have a good spin attack. It will make them favorites to win this game.
