Scorecard summary
Canada Women44/10(17.5 overs)
Sri Lanka Women47/1(6.1 overs)

Sri Lanka have won this game quite easily in 6.1 overs and so join Ireland at the top of group B. It was a very professional performance from Sri Lanka and will have done their net run rate no harm at all.

Player of the match has just been annouced and Gunaratne has won for her outstanding bowling performance.

So we have finished play here for the day. Tomorrow is a rest day so please join us on Thursday when we have another two games from The Hills.

So please join me then. This is Justin Smyth saying good bye.
