IND W vs SL W: Captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s brilliant performance with the ball and bat helped the Indian women’s cricket team win the three-match series by defeating Sri Lanka by five wickets in the second T20 International here on Saturday.
Apart from experienced vice-captain Smriti Mandhana (39 runs in 34 balls), Shefali Verma (17 runs in 10 balls) and Sabhinani Meghna (17 runs in 10 balls) helped India achieve the target of 126 runs in 19.1 overs.

Women’s team won the series
The target was not even that big but the Indian team stumbled while chasing this easy target, after which Harmanpreet scored 31 not out in 32 balls to win the team. Sri Lanka started well but could manage only 125 runs for seven wickets. The third and final T20 match, will be played here on Monday. Mandhana became the second-fastest Indian woman cricketer to reach 2,000 runs in T20Is, making the day a memorable one.
Mandhana’s Amazing
Mandhana achieved this feat in her 84th innings, becoming the third Indian woman cricketer to achieve the feat after legendary cricketer Mithali Raj (70 innings) and current captain Harmanpreet Kaur (88 innings).
Electing to bat after winning the toss, the Sri Lankan team made an ideal start with the help of captain Chamari Athapaththu (43 runs in 41 balls) and Vishmi Gunaratne (45 runs in 50 balls).

Both of them put on the best partnership of 87 runs for the first wicket for Sri Lanka in T20, which made the Indian bowlers look desperate to take wickets. But after the dismissals of Atapattu and Gunaratne, Sri Lanka kept losing wickets and the team was able to score such a low score. Deepti Sharma (2 for 34 in four overs) was certainly the best bowler but Radha Yadav and Pooja Vastrakar also helped India tighten the grip with good performances with the ball.
