The series already in their pocket, a confident India will look to complete a clean-sweep when they take on hosts Sri Lanka in the third and final women’s T20 International in Dambulla on Monday. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led outfit had thrashed the home team by 34 runs in the opening T20 and then followed it up with a dominating five-wicket win in the second game to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. More importantly, the wins will be a morale booster for India ahead of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham starting next month, where women’s T20 cricket is set to make its debut. India seem to have found the winning momentum, but they won’t be entirely pleased with their performance in the series so far. While the bowlers have done a stellar job in the two games, India’s batting has left a lot to be desired. Additionally, the Indians have been sloppy on the field. (LIVE SCORECARD)
