The first match of the ODI series between Sri Lanka Women and India Women will be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on July 1.
Both teams recently competed in a three-game T20I series. There were close matches throughout the series and the Indian team managed to win the draw 2-1. They won the first two games of the series but the Lankan side bounced back to end the series on a high and avoid a smear.
Chamari Athapaththu will continue to lead the Lankan team in the ODI series. She was brilliant in the final game of the T20I series, scoring 80 and going undefeated to guide her team across the line while chasing 139.
She will be looking to continue her form in the ODI series. Everyone has to step in for them if they want to get an early lead in the series.
The Indian side will be led by Harmanpreet Kaur. She was named Player of the T20I Series for her overall performance in all three games. She has been a vital cog in the Indian side and was given the ODI captaincy after Mithali Raj hung her boots.
They have a strong squad and start as favorites heading into the ODI series.
