The England Women have been highly dominative in the first two ODIs against Sri Lanka Women. They have already clinched the three-match ODI series and will be aiming for a clean sweep as the head into the final game. For the 3rd ODI, action will shift from Hambantota to Katunayake.

The hosts will hope for a change of fortunes with the change in venue. The batting of the Lankans has been the primary reason for their downfall in the series. Batsmen have failed to put together some good partnerships and have been over-reliant on the few players. Sri Lanka will look to address this issue and hope to put up a much better performance in this dead rubber.
