India Women will be aiming for a whitewash when they face Sri Lanka Women in the 3rd ODI at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Thursday, July 7. In the first ODI, India bundled out Sri Lanka for 171 runs before winning the match with four wickets and 72 balls remaining. Renuka Singh and Deepti Sharma picked three wickets apiece in the match. Sri Lanka bowler Inoka Ranaweera picked four wickets but that could not avoid her team's loss in the series opener.
In the second T20I, India Women bowled out Sri Lanka Women for 173 before beating them by 10 wickets and 146 balls remaining. Overall, India have defeated Sri Lanka Women in 28 of the 31 ODIs matches the two teams have played against each other. Newly-appointed captain Harmanpreet Kaur is leading India in the series and aiming back-to-back series wins in the island nation. Notably, the visitors won the T20I series 2-1.
As we gear up for the 3rd and final ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the SL-W vs IND-W 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and Chamari Atapattu are my top three player betting tips for the SL-W vs IND-W 3rd ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Haramanpreet Kaur has been in sublime form ever since she took the captaincy of India Women. After starring in the T20Is, Kaur top-scored for India with 44 runs in the first ODI. The crucial knock helped India win the match by four wickets. India won the second match by 10 wickets as Harmanpreet did not get a chance to bat in the second ODI. Harmanpreet Kaur scored 39 and 31 runs in the last two T20Is against Sri Lanka Women and remained unbeaten in both the matches. She was recently appointed the full-time captain of the Indian women's cricket team after the retirement of Mithali Raj. The experienced campaigner has played a total of 120 ODIs, scoring 3026 runs at an average of 35.60. She has four hundreds and 15 fifties to her name in the format.
The 33-year-old has scores of 3, 48, 14, 57*, 14, 109, 71, 5 and 63 in her last nine ODI outings. During India Women's 2018 tour of Sri Lanka, Harmanpreet got to bat in only two of the ODIs as she scored 17 and 7 runs from them. In the 13 ODIs Harmanpreet had played against Sri Lanka Women in the first ODI, she has scored 181 runs at an average of 20.11. However, we had predicted ahead of the first ODI that Harmanpreet looks set to improve her record against the island nation. She is now averaging 22.50 against Sri Lanka after the 44-run knock. After missing out on an opportunity to bat in the second ODI, Harmanpreet Kaur would look to grab the opportunity in the third match and end the tour on a high by playing a captain's knock and inflicting a whitewash on Sri Lanka. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and grab the odds of 1.87 for Harmanpreet Kaur to score over 27.5 runs from the SL-W vs IND-W head-to-head encounter.
Ahead of the 2nd ODI, we had predicted that Smriti Mandhana would score handsomely and she did exactly the same by scoring 94 unbeaten runs off just 83 balls. Her innings consisted of 11 fours and a six as he bounced back beautifully after scoring just four runs in the series opener. India Women opener Smriti Mandhana has played a total of 73 ODIs and scored 2886 runs at a staggering average of 43.07. The 25-year-old has five hundreds and 23 fifties to her name in the format. The southpaw was in decent form during the recently-concluded 3-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, scoring 22, 39, and 1 in the series.
Mandhana has scores of 94*, 4, 71, 30, 10, 35, 123, 6, 52 and 71 in her last ten ODI innings. Smriti Mandhana's last five scores against Sri Lanka Women are - 94*, 4, 51, 14 and 73 not out. Overall, she has played 12 matches against Sri Lanka and scored 431 runs at an average of 43.10. Smriti Mandhana also has an emphatic record in ODIs in Sri Lanka. From the five ODI matches she played in the island nation, she has scored 236 runs at an average of 78.66. From the eleven ODIs Mandhana has played in 2022, she has scored 509 runs at an average of 50.90. The Mumbai-born looks set for yet another cracking knock in the third and final ODI. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 3.24 for Smriti Mandhana to emerge as India's top batter from the SL-W vs IND-W 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Sri Lanka captain and one of the best batters in women's cricket, Chamari Atapattu could manage to score only two runs in the first ODI before scoring 27 off 45 with wickets falling around her. Sri Lanka Women batting unit often collapses when Atapattu fails to score and such has been the case in the first two matches. With India aiming a series whitewash now, Chamari Atapattu would aim to repeat what she did in the third T20I. With India Women aiming for a whitewash in the recently-concluded 3-match T20I series, Atapattu scored 80 not out runs off just 48 balls to help her team register the third T20I. The 32-year-old had chipped in with 43 runs in the 2nd T20I. Chamari Atapattu has been in good form lately and she was expected to carry that in the first two ODIs as well. However, she has a knack of performing under pressure and coming with her A-game. Another defeat would mean a series whitewash for Sri Lanka and Chamari Atapattu is expected to come all guns blazing and score high in the match.
Her last six ODI outings have seen her score 27, 2, 101, 16, 25 and 103 runs. The 101-run knock came against Pakistan on June 5 in Karachi. Overall, she has played 89 ODIs and scored 2796 runs at an average of 31.77. Chamari Atapattu has six hundreds and 14 fifties to her name in the format. Chamari Atapattu's last five ODI innings against India have seen her score 27, 2, 115, 57 and 33 runs. She has played a total of 14 ODI matches against India and scored 339 runs at an average of 24.21. All the aforementioned facts hint at Chamari Atapattu emerging as Sri Lanka's top batter against India Women on July 7. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 3 for Chamari Atapattu to emerge as Sri Lanka's top batter from the SL-W vs IND-W 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
