Winning the toss and opting to bat first, Sri Lanka started falling apart from the very beginning. They lost their skipper Chamari Athapaththu in the 3rd over and the next three wickets in the 4th over alone – bowlers by Renuka Singh Thakur. She even had a part in running out the Arhapaththu earlier.

After Renuka collapsed the Sri Lankan opening and middle order, it was Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Sneh Rana who took the next four wickets to complete the Sri Lankan innings. But, the Lankan women have been strong enough to stand until the end and set up a simple target of 66 runs for Indians.

Dayalan Hemalatha (3-0-8-0), Renuka Singh (3-1-5-3), and Deepti Sharma (4-0-7-0) have been the stars of the Indian bowling unit. Whereas in batting, Sri Lankan Inoka Ranaweera and Oshadi Ranasinghe were the only ones to be in double digits and guarded wickets against falling apart.

Well, the Sri Lankan women didn’t get much of a chance to contain the Indian batters, though, as the latter completed the chase in just 8.3 overs. Indian star opener Smriti Mandhana has once again been the highlight of the show, scoring alone 51 runs in just 25 balls – in a chase of 66 runs!

A hand from the skipper Harmanpreet Kaur handed a win to the Indian contingent in no time – winning their 7th Asia Cup title – in a total of 8 seasons held to date! For her grand bowling figures, Renuka Singh was named the player of the match, while Deepti Sharma was named the player of the series.
