Sri Lanka women (SL-W) will host India women (IND-W) in the first ODI of the three-match series at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Balagolla on Friday, July 1. The match will start at 10:00 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Led by newly-appointed ODI captain Harmanpreet Kaur, India women will look to bag the 50-over series after securing the T20I series 2-1.
SL-W vs IND-W Dream11 prediction
India women have completely dominated Sri Lanka women in the ODI format, winning 26 of the 29 matches that they have played so far. Sri Lanka women have secured just two victories while one match ended as a no result.
Going by recent form and past head-to-head record, Harmanpreet Kaur’s IND-W will start as overwhelming favourites against SL-W on Friday.
SL-W vs IND-W Dream11 team tips for India women tour of Sri Lanka 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
India women star cricketer Smriti Mandhana is the most picked batter for this match. The 25-year-old southpaw has amassed 2,788 runs in 71 ODIs at an average of 42.24 including five hundreds and 22 fifties. Having scored just 62 runs in the recently-concluded T20I series, Mandhana will hope to score big in the first ODI and is a worthy fantasy pick at 10 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Sri Lanka women’s Inoka Ranaweera will be the bowler to watch out for. The veteran left-arm spinner has picked 64 ODI wickets in 62 matches at an economy of just 4.36. At 9 credits, Inoka Ranaweera will be a great fantasy pick for the first ODI.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, in-form Sri Lanka women captain Chamari Athapaththu will be the overwhelming choice. The swashbuckling left-hander was the highest run-getter in the T20I series, scoring 139 runs at an average of 69.50 and a strike rate of 128.70. Apart from his batting, Athapaththu has also bagged 25 wickets in the 50-over format. Athapaththu will be a quality addition to any fantasy team at 10.5 credits.
Sri Lanka women’s Anushka Sanjeewani will be the preferred choice for the wicket-keeper spot ahead of India’s Richa Ghosh. Sanjeewani is an experienced wicket-keeper batter, having played 19 ODIs and has been selected by 82.96 per cent fantasy users at just 8.5 credits.
