Achini Kulasurya has returned with great figures for Sr Lanka against Thailand women picking up 2 wickets for 19.

In the four games they have played so far, they have lost matches by big margins of 9 wickets, 30 runs with the D/L method, 7 wickets, and 88 runs respectively. Elsa Hunter was the only batter that looked like getting runs in the first game when she scored a 29 not out. But she was dismissed cheaply in the later matches of the competition. Sasha Azmi has looked like the bowler to watch out for with a wicket in the last couple of games. But it was Duraisingram who took 3 wickets for 61 runs in one of the matches of the competition. This is the weakest link in the competition and will be desperate to avoid another mauling at the hands of Sri Lanka women.

Dream11 Prediction

It will take a brave man to bet against Sri Lanka in this game against Malaysia. Malaysia has an atrocious record in the competition and Sri Lanka has won several matches so far. The Sri Lanka cricket team has a lot of firepower in their ranks, especially in the batting department. Their bowling attack is also versatile and is likely to dominate the Malaysia batting line-up. Malaysia women are yet to register a win in the Asia Cup. We will certainly bet with Sri Lanka women to win this game.

Top Picks

Sasha Azmi: Sasha Azmi is a top bowler for Malaysia. She has picked up 14 wickets from her last ten games at an economy rate of 4.32 and a strike rate of 15.85. These are amazing figures for a bowler that is a part of a side that is continuously losing matches.

Chamira Atapattu: Chamira Atapattu has scored 224 runs from 10 games at an average of 24.89 and a strike rate of 96.13. This is her performance from the last ten games but she has an even better overall record and can come good again against this slightly weaker opposition.

Inoka Ranaweera: Inoka Ranaweera has picked up 15 wickets for Sri Lanka women in her last 9 appearances for her national side in this format of the game. She has bowled with an economy rate of 6.39 and a strike rate of 13.20 in these matches.

Elsa Hunter: The batter to watch out for is Elsa Hunter in the case of Malaysian women. She has scored 184 runs at an average of 30.67 and a strike rate of 94.84. This 17-year-old has all the prospects of becoming a batting star for her national team.
