Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Shafali Verma, 3.4 ov), 2-89 (Smriti Mandhana, 14.5 ov), 3-102 (Richa Ghosh, 16.3 ov), 4-105 (Harmanpreet Kaur, 17.5 ov), 5-108 (Pooja Vastrakar, 18.4 ov), 6-114 (Jemimah Rodrigues, 19.2 ov), 7-116 (Amanjot Kaur, 19.6 ov)
17.5 to H Kaur, edged and taken! Harmanpreet falls! Full and angled across the batter outside off. Harmanpreet throws the kitchen sink at it but in that process, loses a bit of shape. Gets a healthy outside edge that is snaffled up exceptionally by the keeper, one-handed and high to her right!. 105/4
19.2 to JI Rodrigues, soft dismissal! India lose another! Hard length on middle and off. Rodrigues tries to give herself room this time to clear cover. The ball holds in the surface and bounces a tad extra. Hits her high on the bat and spoons up to cover, who makes no mistake!. 114/6
3.4 to Shafali Verma, Shafali bites the dust! Superb work behind the stumps! Length delivery slanted into leg stump. Shafali backs away, looking to go inside out. The ball keeps coming in with the angle, though, and sneaks past the inside edge. In trying to throw her hands at it, Shafali has also ventured out of her crease and the keeper whips off the bails in a flash to send her on her way! Excellent keeping, it would not have been easy to collect because Shafali was blocking her view a touch. Sri Lanka have their first wicket, and this is just what they would have wanted in the powerplay!. 16/1
18.4 to P Vastrakar, Vastrakar perishes too! Length on off stump. Vastrakar comes down the track, looking to heave it over cow corner. She is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball, though, and ends up dragging it. Deep mid wicket comes running it and completes a smart grab!. 108/5
14.5 to S Mandhana, Ranaweera gets Mandhana! Slowed up even more on a length on off stump. Mandhana tries to slog it over cow corner but is not to the pitch of the ball. The ball seems to stick in the surface too, eventually taking the top edge and lobbing up towards short fine leg. A regulation catch really, and Mandhana's innings comes to an end!. 89/2
16.3 to RM Ghosh, enormous turn, and Ghosh has nicked it! Length delivery fired in on off. As soon as the ball lands, there is a puff of dust and it turns exponentially. Ghosh, looking for the sweep, is not to the pitch of the ball and feathers it through to the keeper, right off the toe-end!. 102/3

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Anushka Sanjeewani, 2.1 ov), 2-13 (Vishmi Gunaratne, 2.4 ov), 3-14 (Chamari Athapaththu, 4.2 ov), 4-50 (Hasini Perera, 9.5 ov), 5-78 (Nilakshika Silva, 16.1 ov), 6-86 (Oshadi Ranasinghe, 17.4 ov), 7-92 (Kavisha Dilhari, 18.6 ov), 8-96 (Sugandika Kumari, 19.5 ov)
17.4 to OU Ranasinghe, Ranasinghe perishes! Is that the game?! Length delivery on off stump that grips in the surface and bounces extra again. Ranasinghe, like she did earlier in the over, looks for the reverse but can only pop it straight to short third because of the extra bounce! SL sink further into trouble!. 86/6
16.1 to NND Silva, cleans her up! Very full and very straight - the you-miss-I-hit kind of delivery. de Silva tries to be too funky and looks for the scoop but makes a mess of it. Cannot access the ball and hears the death rattle soon after. Had she stayed still, that would have been a full toss, and that is perhaps what she might be thinking walking back to the shed!. 78/5
2.1 to MAA Sanjeewani, and she gets a wicket straightaway! Full and hung outside off. Sanjeewani tries to go over mid off but makes a complete hash of her attempt. Clinks right off the toe-end of the bat and Harmanpreet does the rest at mid off!. 13/1
2.4 to RMVD Gunaratne, goes through her like a hot knife through better! Sadhu has two! Back of a length delivery on middle and off stump that skids along. Gunaratne is caught on the crease and has a loose poke at it. The ball sneaks past the bat and smashes into the stumps!. 13/2
4.2 to AMCJK Athapaththu, Athapaththu falls! Sadhu has three, and SL are in all sorts of bother now! Back of a length delivery outside off that seems to stick in the surface just a shade. Athapaththu gives it the lot but she does not have much pace to work with. Cannot clear the ring and ends up offering a tame catch to Deepti at extra cover. India are elated; Athapaththu disconsolate!. 14/3
9.5 to GWHM Perera, Gayakwad gets her revenge, massive moment in the game! Length delivery hung outside off stump. Perera, having already gotten a four and a six this over, tries to make this a mega over. Looks for the slog sweep but does not get the elevation she is after. Arrows it straight to deep mid wicket, and India bag a wicket, just as Sri Lanka were threatening to break free!. 50/4
19.5 to BMSM Kumari, stumped by a mile! Fired in full outside off. Sugandika pre-meditates her advance and swings at it, because, well, why not. Misses the ball completely and Ghosh holds her nerve to effect the stumping!. 96/8
18.6 to WK Dilhari, all SL manage is a wicket! Floated up nicely on leg stump, and it seems Dilhari has been done in by the flight. Comes down the track, looking to maul it over cow corner but is not to the pitch of the ball. Swings way too early and the ball spoons up off the leading edge. Ghosh calls early and makes no mistake!. 92/7
