SL Women SLW
126/9 (20)

Sri Lanka Women won by 3 runs

RSAW vs SLW Betting Tips

  • Laura Wolvaardt hit 65 against Pakistan Women in a warm up game and 42 not out at the end of last month against West Indies Women. She is well worth backing as South Africa Women’s highest run scorer in this opener. Nonkululeko Mlaba was in excellent form during the Tri-Nation Series and is our tip for South Africa Women’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka Women.
  • Chamari Athapththu has a top score of 113 in this format and the skipper is our pick for Sri Lanka Women’s highest run scorer against South Africa Women. With the ball, Inoka Ranaweera has 68 wickets in this format at a strike-rate of 18.5. We expect her to be Sri Lanka Women’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • There will undoubtedly be nerves on both sides in the opening game of the tournament. We recommend backing Laura Wolvaardt to hit over 29.5 runs in this clash.

South Africa Women are favorites to beat

SA-W vs SL-W T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Womens T20 World Cup 2023

The 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup begins with hosts South Africa Women taking on Sri Lanka Women in Match 1 on Friday evening in Cape Town. South Africa Women beat India Women in the final of the Tri-Nation Series earlier this month. Sri Lanka Women’s last fixture was in the Women’s Asia Cup Final in October. Read on as we preview this Group A game. The match gets underway at Newlands Cricket Ground at 19:00 local time.

After winning the Tri-Nation Series and as hosts of the competition, there is real belief in the South Africa Women’s squad. We expect them to get off to a winning start in this match.

Sri Lanka Women exceeded expectations by reaching the Women’s Asia Cup Final last year but getting off to a winning start in this tournament would be an even bigger achievement.

The humidity levels will not increase a huge amount from the first to the second innings in this game. We predict both captains will want to judge the wicket whilst fielding first.

Although they have never previously gone beyond the first round of a Women’s T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka Women will come into this game with high hopes after going all the way to the Women’s Asia Cup last year. There is plenty of experience across the squad.

  • Harshita Samarawickrama - The left-handed top order batter hit 56 not out in a warm-up game against Ireland Women in Stellenbosch earlier this month.
  • Inoka Ranaweera - The 36 year old slow left-arm spinner has taken wickets in each of her last nine international appearances and will enjoy bowling on this surface.

Who will win South Africa vs Sri Lanka Women T20 Match?

Particularly in South African conditions, the South Africa Women line-up looks a lot stronger. Sri Lanka Women have good options in the spin department but South Africa Women’s batting line-up is much better. 

SA-W vs SL-W Top Team Batsmen

We recommend Laura Wolvaardt, Sune Luus and Chloe Tryon with the bat for South Africa Women. Captain Luus has a top score of 71 in this format and has hit four half-centuries. Tryon comes into this game in excellent batting form in T20 cricket.

Chamari Athapththu, Harshitha Samarawickrama and Nilakshi de Silva are our batting picks. de Silva is a vastly experienced batter across all formats and has a top score of 49 not out in WT20Is. Samarawickrama needs 73 runs to bring up 1000 international runs in this game.

SA-W vs SL-W Top Team Bowlers

Nonkululeko Mlaba, Ayabonga Khaka and Shabnim Ismail are our selections with the ball for South Africa Women. Ismail has over 300 international wickets including 115 in WT20Is. Khaka is a very consistent performer at this level and has best figures of 4-23 in this format.

We are backing Inoka Ranaweera, Oshadi Ranasinghe and Alchini Kulasuriya as our bowling tips for Sri Lanka Women. Ranasinghe is an experienced off-spinner and took 3-22 in a warm-up fixture against Ireland on Monday. Kulasruiya took 2-19 on the journey to the Women’s Asia Cup Final last year.

There is plenty of excitement across the cricketing world for the start of this tournament and we expect Sri Lanka Women to cause South Africa Women some problems with the ball in this game. However, there is far more depth and top level experience with both bat and ball in this South Africa Women’s side. Our prediction is for a victory for South Africa Women.
