Sri Lanka Women 152 for 4 (Siriwardene 40, Dolawatte 37*, Weerakkody 37) beat Bangladesh Women 148 (Rahaman 39, Kaushalya 3-21, Prabodani 2-12) by six wickets
Sri Lanka Women's new-ball pair of Eshani Kaushalya and Nisansala Prabodani tore through the Bangladesh Women line-up, setting up a comfortable six-wicket win in Kurunegala as the hosts swept the one-day series 3-0. The top five Bangladesh batsmen fell early, all of them bowled, three falling to Kaushalya and two to 15-year old Prabodani.
At 24 for 5, the Bangladesh lower order did well to eventually get them to 148 as they batted out their 50 overs. Suktara Rehman and Chamely Khatun were chiefly responsible for getting Bangladesh as far as they did.
Sri Lanka lost a couple of early wickets and were 34 for 2 at one stage. Prasadani Weerakkody and Sandamali Dolawatta steered them to 80 before Shashikala Siriwardene settled matters with a quick 40.
