Indian women’s team has showed an immense apathetic and dull batting performance and that cost a defeat of 22 runs against Sri Lankan women team in ICC Women World Twenty20 in the opening match of Group B on Monday. Although the bowlers have displayed a legitimate performance in order to prevent the Sri Lankan batters to score a huge run, resulting them to reduce at 128 for eight.

On the other hand, in the feedback of this, the Indian side kept losing wickets in a consistent manner and that made the situation hardy for this side in order to drive the target and ultimately ended at 106 at the loss of nine wickets. They lost the match to Sri Lanka by 22 runs in Sylhet stadium.

Left-handed batter Chamari Jayangani hit sprightly 43 and Eshani Lokusuriyage stormed upon the the Indian bowlers with a quick 34 runs and these two scores built the substructure of the scoreboard of that side.Jayangani started as the opening batter and played thoroughly to survive on the crease.

Only four Indian batters could hit more than 10 runs and that too is below 30, such as Shikha Pandey (22), Harmanpreet Kaur (17), Skipper Mithali Raj (16) and Jhulan Goswami (11), and that was not adequate in order to register the victory. The batters have been made to go back to the pavilion mainly by left-arm pacer Udeshika Prabodhani (2/9), left-arm spinner Inoka Ranaweera (2/18) and off-spinner Maduri Samuddika (2/20). Each of them took two wickets and hindered their chase.
Jayagani scored her runs off 44 balls with the assistant of five fours, while Lokusuriyage laced her 29-ball knock with four boundaries. Apart from the duo, Yasoda Mendis and Chamari Polgampola made identical scores of 13 for the islanders. For India, leg-break bowler Poonam Yadav picked up two wickets for 20 runs.
