England Women (ENG-W) and Sri Lanka Women (SL-W) are all set to square off in a multi-format series which includes three T20Is and as many ODI matches. The two sides will cross swords at the County Ground in Hove on Thursday, August 31, in the first T20I.

Speaking about their head-to-head records, England have outrightly dominated the rival team with wins in all of the nine matches played thus far. Chamari Athapaththu-led Sri Lanka will look to break England’s streak and obtain a result in their favour in the first game of the T20I series.
