New Delhi:

The eves of India on Wednesday will take on Lankan ladies in their 4th match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 at Derby.

The table-toppers India would start as obvious favourites against struggling Sri Lanka who are yet to open their account. Riding high on confidence after 3 consecutive wins, Mithali Raj&Co. will look to seal the semi-final spot while Lankan divas will look for the first win.

Team India would not want to make many changes but they might pick their bowling attack depending on what the wicket has to offer. Mansi Joshi, who made her dream World Cup debut in the last match will most likely to remain the part of playing XI.

Sri Lanka very well understand who they will face but they can’t be taken for granted with the skipper Inoka Ranaweera hoping the ladies “will be trying to do their best as a team against India.”
