The South Africa women's national cricket team will host Sri Lanka in a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series starting on Tuesday, April 9.

The upcoming three-match ODI series is a part of the ICC Women's Championship 2022-25.

With 10 wins in 15 matches, South Africa Women are currently placed second in the ICC Women's Championship 2022-25 standings with 20 points.

Sri Lanka Women, on the other hand, have registered four wins and suffered eight defeats. They are placed eighth in the standings with 11 points.

As per the South Africa Women vs Sri Lanka Women ODI 2024 schedule, the first game will be played at the Buffalo Park in East London.

The two teams will later travel to Kimberley to play the second ODI to be hosted at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on April 13.

The third and final ODI of the series is scheduled to be held at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on April 17.

Ranked third in the ICC women’s ODI team rankings, South Africa have announced their 14-member squad to be led by Laura Wolvaardt.

The hosts will miss the services of experienced all-rounder Chloe Tryon due to a back injury. All-rounder Delmi Tucker has been named as Chloe Tryon’s replacement in the squad.

Meanwhile, the 16-year-old wicketkeeper-batter Karabo Meso has received her maiden ODI call-up. 

South Africa Women will aim to bounce back in the 50-over format after suffering a 1-2 defeat in the recently-concluded T20I series.

While the Proteas won the opening T20I, they lost the next matches to succumb to a series defeat at home.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka women's national cricket team will be high on confidence after clinching the T20I series.

The visitors will once again be led by ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year, Chamari Athapaththu. 

Interestingly, Sri Lanka Women are touring South Africa for their first bilateral series since 2019.
