Ahead of their prestigious cricketing tour against Sri Lanka, Cricket Australia has recently announced the women’s squads for three-match T20I and ODI series starting from this September. The upcoming glitzy contest is very important for both the teams as both Australia and Sri Lanka are looking forward to secure their seats in ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 in New Zealand. Currently, Australian women are leading the points table with two wins in ICC Women’s Championship. With this upcoming tour, the hosts are hoping that they will maintain their dominance and clinch the series with a perfect win.
The chief selector of Australian women’s squad Shawn Flegler said while announcing the squad, “the selectors have elected to stick with the same group of players that completed a 6-0 tour whitewash against the West Indies recently with Erin Burns the unlucky player to miss out on the ODI squad”.
The Australian women will start their grand cricketing campaign against Lankans from a three-match T20I home series in Sydney. The first T20I clash between both the teams will take place at North Sydney Oval Stadium on September 29th. On the other hand, the three-match ODI series between Australia and Sri Lanka will start from October 5th, 2019 at Brisbane.
It will be interesting to see whether the hosts will be able to dominate the visitors or Lankans will go down against Kangaroos.
