On Sunday, February 19, at Boland Park in Paarl, the 17th game of the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 will take place between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. After losing two of their first three games, New Zealand is in a vulnerable position. They would want to put on a complete effort against Chamari Athapaththu & Co. because a victory in the upcoming game would give them a chance to move to the knockout stage.
Nonetheless, Sri Lanka had a great start to their campaign, winning their first two games. In contrast, they were thoroughly defeated by Australia in their third encounter. The team commanded by Athapaththu will attempt to defeat the White Ferns following the defeat.maintain their chances of reaching the last four.

Location: Boland Park in Paarl
Time: 10:30 p.m. on February 19.

Boland Park’s pitch has favoured bowlers so far in the competition, and batsmen will need to spend some time in the middle to get used to the wicket’s brisk speed. In two of the last three games played here, the team batting first has won because chasing has not been an easy assignment at the location. As a result, the team that wins the toss on Sunday might try to set a goal.
