India Women are scheduled to face Sri Lanka Women on February 29 in the 8th Group A game of the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. The India Women vs Sri Lanka Women live match will be played at the Junction Oval in Melbourne. The IND W vs SL W action will commence at 9:30 AM IST. Here are more IND W vs SL W match details such as India vs Sri Lanka toss time and other playing conditions.
Under the captaincy of Harmanpreet Kaur, India Women have won the toss just once in their last five T20I matches. However, India have won four of those five matches and three of those wins have come in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Women team have won the toss on two occasions in their last five completed matches. They have lost all five of those matches with their most recent defeat coming against Australia Women in their second Group A game.
As evident from the recently concluded tri-series between Australia, India and England, the Junction Oval pitch is decent for batting. In all the women’s T20Is played at the venue, the average score batting first has been 143. Due to cloudy weather conditions, swing might become a deciding factor in the game. Judging by the recent results at the venue, expect the captain to win the toss and bat first.
The India vs Sri Lanka toss time for the upcoming match is 9:00 AM IST. The match will then commence at 9:30 AM IST. The first innings will conclude at 11:00 AM IST and the two teams will break for a 20-minute interval. The players will step back into the field for the run chase at 11:20 AM IST. The India vs Sri Lanka toss time could only be delayed in the case of heavy rains or a wet outfield.
