The final match of the tour is not expected to be different from the rest of the matches. The tour started with a positive note for the Lankan Women as Athapaththu created history by becoming the first woman to score an international T20 hundred while chasing. The following matches were a hard pill to swallow for the guests, as the century’s galore from Aussie women while the Lankans failed to get their team score past the hundred run mark.
The misery continued for the Lankans in the first ODI as Skipper Lanning starred in an emphatic 157-run win. Alyssa Healy and Rachael Haynes vindicated Meg Lanning’s decision to bat first in the second ODI as they scored 116 inside 20 overs before the former was dismissed for 69 off 62 balls by Shashikala Siriwardene. There was no respite for the visitors as Australian captain Meg Lanning collaborated with Haynes to stitch a 103-run stand for the second wicket. While Lanning perished just 5 runs short of her second fifty in a row, opener Rachael Haynes struck her maiden century in her 56th ODI.
When the stage was well set for an onslaught, the Sri Lanka team pegged the hosts back with wickets at regular intervals. When Haynes was dismissed for an outstanding 118, the scorecard read 246/4 in 44 overs. Australia managed to score only 36 from the next 5 overs and lost 4 wickets to end their innings at 282/8. Jonassen inched closer to the land-mark of 100 ODI wickets with the key wicket of Athapaththu.
Finally, Sanjeewani and Madavi put together a 70-run partnership in the tour after they achieved a similar feat in the first T20I. However, their slow progress backfired as the asking rate kept climbing up to put the middle order under pressure. Nicole Carey broke through with the wicket of Sanjeewani as Australia spinners regained control in the middle overs. Georgis Wareham was more accurate than the opening match and claimed 2 for 29 from 10 overs. Jonassen reached the milestone of 100 wickets trapping Sugandika Kumari and she claimed one more to finish the match with figures of 4 for 31 from her 10 overs. The inevitable was delayed but another resounding win of 110-run came for the Aussies as the opposition batted out their 50 overs.

The hosts picked up their 16th win in the ICC Women’s Championship in 17 games to consolidate their position at the top of the table.
Their batters have been the story in this tour so far, and they have 3 centuries from 3 different players so far. Aussie spinners have been far more superior than their counterparts picking 12 wickets in the series. They have been impressive against the subcontinent team, who usually play spin well. With Women’s Big Bash League to commence in a10 days, Aussie women would love to go in to that mode and launch a score past 300.
Alyssa Healey: Her purple path continued in ODI’s after accumulating 212 runs in the T20 series. She has 77 runs so far in the ODI series and would love to end the series on a high and carry that momentum to the T20 league.
Ellyse Perry: She scored 178 and picked 5 wickets from the 3 ODI series against the West Indies. She was the player of the tournament in the Ashes series for her all-round performance. Performance from her is not up to her standard in this series.
Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney, Megan Schutt, Jess Jonassen, Ellyse Perry, Nicola Carey, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Wareham
Sri Lanka Women would draw few positives from the second ODI after their horrendous show in the first match. They managed to restrict Australia to a score less than 300 when the hosts were comfortably placed at 240 by the end of 45 overs. They batted out the full 50 overs this time around after bundling out within 42 overs in their first meeting. Madavi has been a consistent performer with scores of 22 and 39. None of the other players have their strike rates close to 80 in this ODI series so far. It is all about their batting which needs to step up to bring wildest of upsets.
Bowling has been reasonable compared to their batting with Kulasuriya picking up 4 wickets so far in this series.
Chamari Athapaththu: Her 113 off 66 in the first T20 was the only phase where Aussie women lost their control. She has much to offer in this final ODI, as her franchise Melbourne Renegades will be keen on her performance ahead of the Big Bash League
Shashikala Siriwardene: The ODI skipper has scores of 30 and 22 so far in this series. Her right-arm off-breaks have fetched her 3 wickets with an economy under 5.
Shashikala Siriwardene, Harshitha Madavi, Chamari Atapattu, Nilakshi de Silva, Achini Kulasuriya, Yasoda Mendis, Ama Kanchana, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Anushka Sanjeewani, Sugandika Kumari, Udeshika Prabodhani
The weather forecast is promising with little or no chance of rain playing spoilsport.
There will be much in the offer for the spinners as the pitch has started wearing out.
Both teams will look to bat first, Aussies to give some good practice to their batters ahead of the T20 league and Sri Lanka to change the pattern of the failure.
It is going to be another hammering for the Lankans, but they would love to give a competitive performance this time around. It will be the upset of the year if Sri Lanka managed to do anything unnatural in this final ODI.
Australia Women will win the match!
