CWG 2022: ENG-W vs SL-W T20 Match Prediction – Who will win today’s match between England Women vs Sri Lanka Women?

England will take on Sri Lanka in their opening fixture of Commonwealth Games 2022 at Edgbaston on July 30th, Saturday. Heather Knight’s women lost the World Cup final to eternal rivals Australia earlier this year. They head into the momentous tournament after marmalizing South Africa in the ODIs and T20Is with an aggregate score of 6-0.

In contrast to England, who are one of the favourites for the tournament, Sri Lanka are amidst a torrid run, losing back-to-back white-ball series against India. The islanders were the last team to qualify for the tournament, pipping Bangladesh in the qualifier for the CWG 2022. They will have to play out of their skins to get a result against a dominating English side.

ENG-W vs SL-W Probable Top Performers

Sophia Dunkley:

England’s most in-form batter, Sophia Dunkley has made the opening spot her own after starting as a middle-order batter. The enterprising right-hand batter has three 50+ scores in her last five white-ball games, including a maiden century in ODIs. She will be vying to make a mark in the team’s opening fixture in the tournament.

Probable best bowler

Katherine Brunt:

Winner of World Cups in both formats, veteran English pacer Katherine Brunt is showing no signs of slowing down as she became the country’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is in the recently concluded series against South Africa. Her experience will be key for the team’s chances in the tournament in front of their home crowd.
