Britain Women’s offspinning couple of Laura Marsh and Danielle Hazell took seven wickets between them to pulverize Sri Lanka Women for 78 and seal a 162-run win in the fourth ODI in Colombo. With the win, England finished a 4-0 clear and their 6th back to back arrangement win.
In a match that was pushed to the hold day by the climate, Sri Lanka were played out in 33.1 overs, with Marsh taking 4 for 21 and Hazell returning figures of 3 for 21 – her best in ODIs. That, after England had set up 240 for 9 on Thursday subsequent to being lifted by commitments from Natalie Sciver (77) and the lower arrange.
Sciver performed with the ball as well, and was the first to strike, taking out Sri Lanka’s openers inside eight overs to decrease them to 21 for 2. Twenty balls later, in the space of which Sri Lanka had included only three runs, Marsh had her first unfortunate casualty, sending back Lasanthi Madhushani to uncover Sri Lanka’s center request.
Swamp and Hazell at that point scythed through the center request with the following three wickets succumbing to 17 keeps running as Sri Lanka slipped to 47 for 6. Prasadani Weerakkody, the main batsman to demonstrate some battle with 32, included 29 keeps running for the seventh wicket with Nilakshi de Silva – the most elevated Sri Lanka could oversee – before the home group lost their last four wickets for the expansion of two runs.
Britain started in comparably poor mold on Thursday, losing opener Tammy Beaumont for a duck in the second over subsequent to batting. Amy Jones (28) and Heather Knight (11), the skipper, steadied them quickly with a 30-run second-wicket remain, before England slid radically, losing five wickets for 20 hurries to wind up 58 for 6.
Natalie Sciver, who had exited exactly toward the beginning of the crumple with England 38 for 2, started the recuperation. Like Sciver, who later upheld them with the ball, Hazell and Marsh made significant commitments with the bat. Sciver and Hazell included 104 keeps running for the seventh wicket. Sciver was played by Chamari Atapattu for a 74-ball 77, preceding Hazell included 44 more for the eighth wicket with Marsh. Bog stuck around till the end, remaining not out on 36. She was helped by No. 10 Beth Langston, who contributed with 21, to finish England’s recuperation before rain ceased play.
Inoshi Priyadharshani and Inoka Ranaweera caused the greater part of the harm, completing with three wickets each.
