Australia, the defending T20 World Champions, are playing up to their reputation as favourites after easily disposing of their opponents in their first two group games. When they play Sri Lanka in the eleventh game of the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa, they will face their first real test.
Although Australia enters the match as the clear favourite, Sri Lanka has yet to drop a match in the competition and is capable of upsetting the five-time winners. To compete with the Women in Yellow, the Islanders will need to be flawless in every aspect of the game.
Location: St. George’s Park in Gqeberha
Time: 6:30 p.m. on February 16

The bowlers can benefit from the pitch’s abundance of support, which they can use to their advantage.
