Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has announced a 19-member squad for the forthcoming white-ball series against India. Sri Lanka will face India in a three-match T20I and three-match ODI series, with skipper Chamari Athapaththu leading the team.
Hasini Perera, Nilakshi de Silva, Oshadi Ranasinghe, and Inoka Ranaweera were among the key players chosen by the team selection committee. Vishmi Gunaratne, who has yet to play for Sri Lanka in a 50-over match, has been chosen in both the T20I and ODI squads.
Both teams will face off in a three-match T20I series to begin. The series will begin on Thursday, June 23 (Thursday), with the final match taking place on Friday, June 27. (Monday). Dambulla will host all of the T20I matches. The ODI series will take place during the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25 season. The ODI series will take place from July 1 to July 7, with all matches taking place in Pallekele.
The 50-over series will be crucial for the home team because they finished last in the last cycle of the ICC Women’s Championship. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka just suffered a series of defeats at the hands of Pakistan, and they will be looking to rebound against India in the forthcoming series.
Team India, on the other side, will play their first match of the ICC Women’s Championship cycle. Harmanpreet Kaur will be the new captain of the team following Mithali Raj’s retirement from international cricket. The BCCI has already announced its roster for the upcoming tour.
