India Women vs Sri Lanka Women Highlights Asia Cup T20 2022 Final: India Women defeated Sri Lanka Women by eight wickets in their Women’s Asia Cup 2022 final, at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet, on Saturday. Chasing a target of 66 runs, India cruised to 71 for two in 8.3 overs, in a rather one-sided affair. Opener Smriti Mandhana hammered an unbeaten half-century, clattering 51 runs off 25 balls. Initially, Sri Lanka were crushed by Indian bowlers and could only post 65 for nine in 20 overs, with Inoka Ranaweera remaining unbeaten after registering 18 runs off 22 balls. Meanwhile, Renuka Singh was in hot form and took three wickets for India. Sneh Rana and Rajeshwari Gayakwad bagged two-wicket hauls respectively for Harmanpreet Kaur’s side.
Deepti receives the Player of the Tournament award and she says, “Really happy with the way we performed as unit from the first game till today. We executed what was discussed in the meeting. I just back my strengths and those things helped me a lot in this tournament. The wickets were slow and before this tournament, I worked a lot on my batting and those sessions really helped me. This win gives us a lot of confidence going into the upcoming series as well.”
