ESPNcricinfo staff

Sri Lanka Women 184 for 6 (Rasangika 55, Manodara 38*) beat West Indies Women 180 for 8 (Campbelle 105, Weerakkody 3-19, Prabodhani 3-35) by four wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Despite West Indies' Shemaine Campbelle scoring 105 after an early collapse, Sri Lanka leveled the three-match series at 1-1, chasing down West Indies' total of 180 in Dambulla. West Indies elected to bat, but had a horror start as Udeshika Prabodhani took three quick wickets to help reduce West Indies to 7 for 4 and then 23 for 5.

From there Deandra Dottin and Shemaine Campbelle put together a 45-run stand to try and steady the ship, before Dottin was dismissed. A further 110 runs were added with Anisa Mohammed before Campbelle was finally out for 105. West Indies finished on 180, with Prabodhani and Sripali Weerakkody claiming three wickets each.

Sri Lanka's chase started in omnious fashion, as opener Chamari Polgampola was dismissed with no runs as yet scored. Chamari Atapattu and Deepika Rasangika then put on 40 runs, before two wickets fell in the same over to leave Sri Lanka at a precarious 40 for 3. A 60-run partnership between Shashikala Siriwardene and Dilani Manodara for the fifth wicket though helped Sri Lanka regain control of the match, and they completed the chase inside of 46 overs.

    If SLC had any wishes to promote women cricket in SL, they should have placed these matches in Colombo and other big cities such as Galle

    Well done girls. The men;s team lost to WI in the T20 final but you overcame the WI side. Your future prospects looks very good. It is now up to SLC to treat women as equals and ensure that they get central contracts and build the team so they can win the next world cup.
