Australia vs Sri Lanka Women's World Cup clash could be tense

Former champions Australian eves, who have maintained a clean sheet in the on-going ICC Women's World Cup, will look to tame Sri Lanka in an interesting Super Six tie at Brabourne Stadium today.

After a close two-run victory over defending champions England in the previous match, five-time champions Australia will still not take the islanders lightly. Jodie Fields-led Australia will look to get an early breakthrough against Sri Lanka even as their batting still remains a concern.

“We need to work on the batting. We were very disappointed with the total that we posted against England. It was swinging a little bit earlier but we are a better team than them,” said Aussie all-rounder Alexandra Blackwell.

Both the teams have played twice with Australia emerging winners on both the occasions. The Aussies will be wary of Sri Lanka’s spin attack which can trouble the best.
