The West Indies Women, put into bat, totaled 195 in 47.1 overs coming a cropper against the twosome of Sugandika Kumari and Kavisha Dilhari who claimed three wickets each.

Sri Lanka Women got off to a telling 88-run start with openers Vishmi Gunaratne, who made 40 and Chamari Atapattu 38, going after the bowling.  Following Gunaratne’s exit, Athapaththu and No. 3 Harshitha Samarawickrema took the Lankans to 100 before the Lankan captain was dismissed having struck 6 boundaries. 

Samarawickrema went on to make an unbeaten 40 in adding 73 runs with Hasini Perera, who top scored with 43, for the fourth wicket.
