Mithali Raj’s well executed half century followed by an impressive bowling performance led IndiaWOMEN to a comprehensive win against Sri Lanka in the 12th Match of Asian Cricket Council Women’s Twenty20 Asia Cup last evening.
After bowling Zimbabwe out for 160 in 36.3 overs, Sri Lanka lost three early wickets before Tharanga and Mendis chased down the target in 37.3 overs. Zimbabwe had shown great resilience in making the final after initial losses by going past West Indies, but in the title clash, Sri Lanka proved to be too good.
According to the tender criteria, only Conica Sports Flooring - a company which laid the Synthetic Track at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Games and 12 other Class II tracks in India - meets the pre-requisites. “Given the bid specifications, it’s clear that they have rigged it even before calling for bids. There’s only one company that qualify under these criteria,” said a bidder.
Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?
"It was quite an embarrassing defeat. It was pure poor batting and the execution. You have to be really skillful to bat against these guys, especially in these conditions. Anderson once again showed his class. Stuart Broad was brilliant as well. One or two of our guys needed to raise our hands and put up a good score, particularly in the first innings. We failed to do that in the first innings, and once again in the second innings, so that's a pretty obvious reason for our defeat." - Angelo Mathews
Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
