Allan Border Field, Brisbane, 07th October at 05:40 AM IST
After being dismantled by the hosts in the first ODI, Sri Lanka women will be looking to crawl back to winning ways when they face the hosts in the second ODI at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
It was contemplating show from the hosts in the first ODI. Batting first, they scored a formidable 281 courtesy half-centuries from Rachel Haynes skipper Meg Lanning and Beth Mooney.
In reply, the Sri Lanka women were bundled out for a mere 124 as they succumbed under pressure with skipper Shashikala Siriwardene being the top scorer with 30 runs.
With series on the line, Sri Lanka Women have to buckle up and only a win here will keep them alive.
