Sri Lanka Women would be eying an early lead as they take on Bangladesh Women in the first game of the three-match ODI series. This series is a part of the ICC Championship, which makes it interesting. Sri Lanka Women lost the last series at home against India Women and look for a good show here, while the Bangladeshi will look to get over their poor show against New Zealand.
Bangladesh Women have struggled in ODIs in the last 12 months. They have just one victory in their last eight games, and the side is battling confidence issues. Sri Lanka Women haven’t fared any better, but the side has knowledge of the conditions. It will be interesting to see which side takes the lead by winning this game.
Chamari Athapaththu will like to get her side off to a good start in this game. They don’t have an impressive record in this format, and the Sri Lankan skipper would like to improve on that with a good show. Athapaththu would look to exploit Bangladesh’s lack of form in this game.
Chamari Athapaththu and Vishmi Gunaratne must do well at the top, being the two most important batters for the team. Hasini Perera has grown in stature and will look to do well in the middle order with Kavisha Dilhari and Harshitha Madavi. Anushka Sanjeewani and Nilakshi de Silva add to the side’s batting strength.
Ama Kanchanan and Oshadi Ranasinghe must do well with the new ball and put the side in a commanding position. Kavisha Dilhari and Inoka Ranaweera must keep the scoring rate under check. The side will also expect good spells from Rashmi Silva and Athapaththu in the supporting role.

Nigar Sultana’s side would like to get over the tag of being poor tourists. Apart from a few odd performances, the side has struggled away from home. They have made several changes to the squad for this tour, and Sultana would like to see the young players deliver the goods in this game.
They will need a good start from Murshida Khatun and Shamima Sultana as the Sri Lankan bowlers enjoy home advantage. Nigar Sultana is the star batter for the side, and she has to build partnerships with Fargana Hoque and Sobhana Mostary in the middle order. The side will also expect runs from Lata Mondal and Ritu Moni in the lower middle order.
The bowling attack will face a strong Sri Lankan top order, and they need good spells from Disha Biswas and Jahanara Alam with the new ball. Nahida Akter and Fahima Khatun must put the hosts under pressure by bowling in the right areas. Lata Mondal must bowl well in the supporting role.

We will see overcast skies over Colombo on April 29, with predictions for rain during the game. The surface would be flat, and batters would enjoy the ball coming onto the bat. The side that bats first in the game shall need 250 runs on the board to feel safe.
P Sara Oval, Colombo, has short square boundaries and a quick outfield. Batters enjoy batting on this surface as the ball comes to the bat nicely. There isn’t much on this surface for the fast bowlers. It has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners as the ball turns sharply.
The wicket here is known for being good to bat on early in the game. It slows down as the game progresses, making batting a big challenge. The side winning the toss would be happy to bat first and have a big on the board.
Bangladesh Women will have to overcome the mental challenge of being poor tourists. Their batters will face a big test against the Sri Lankan spinners and must put runs on the board for the side to do well. Sri Lanka plays at home, and they have a strong bowling attack. We expect a close game, but the hosts will have the edge.
