Sri Lanka managed to take the early wicket of Shafali Verma (9), but after that Smriti Mandhana (46) and Jemimah Rodrigues (42) took their team forward with a strong partnership of 73 runs.

The fast bowler took three top-order wickets in the powerplay, including the wicket of the dangerous Chamari Athapaththu.
