The England women started their tour of Sri Lankan with an emphatic win against the Sri Lankan women. There was some threat of rain around but enough overs could be bowled to get a full result in. The difference in the quality of the two sides was pretty apparent immediately after the start of the match and even though the Sri Lankan tail tried to put up a fight, the result of the match was never in question.
The venue for the second ODI between England women and the Sri Lankan women is the same as the first one, Hambantota, and we could have another rain-affected match.
A poor bowling performance by the Sri Lankan women never let the home side gain any momentum. Every single bowler went for plenty of runs and the wickets only came when the English batters made mistakes rather than through any efforts of the Sri Lankan bowlers.
Udeshika Prabodhani, Inoka Ranaweera, Oshidi Ranasinghe, Harshitha Madavi, Chamari Athapaththu, and Shashikala Siriwardene formed the bowling attack in the previous match. The new ball bowlers sprayed the ball everywhere and gave away too many loose balls.
There was never a time when the Sri Lankan bowlers built any sustained run of dot balls or locked up one side of the wicket. There is very little time in between the matches and it will be interesting to see if the Sri Lankan bowlers are going to be able to adjust their line of attack ahead of the second match.
The lack of talent in the bowling department was something to be expected but a complete lack of fight from the batters was more disappointing. Chamari Athapaththu is the best batter in this side and she showed a few glimpses of her talent. She scored 30 with six boundaries but did not get any support from the other top-order batters.
There was no other batter apart from Chamari who scored more than 5 runs in the top-7. A fighting 45 from Nilakshi de Silva and 51 from Oshadi Ranasinghe brought some respectability to the total but the match was lost at that point.
Sri Lanka cannot hope to win matches after such poor bowling performances and then getting reduced to 46 for 7 with the bat.
Prasadani Weerakkody, Chamari Atapattu, Nilakshi de Silva, Hansima Karunaratne, Anushka Sanjeewani, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Shashikala Siriwardene, Harshitha Madavi, I Fernando, Achini Kulasuriya, Inoka Ranaweera.
Amy Ellen Jones, Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight, Nate Sciver, and Danielle Wyatt all made merry against a sub-standard bowling attack. Sciver scored the highest number of runs with 93 to her name but any one of these players could have ended up scoring a century.
This is the only small criticism of the batting performance from England that a number of batters got starts and even passed fifty but not even one of them was able to get to a three-figure score.
There were five sixes that were hit by the English batters in the previous match and that is another area where the visitors will dominate in this series. The test for the English batters was going to be facing up against the spin bowling but that did not turn out to be a concern at all.
The rain in Hambantota meant that the ball was not easy to grip for the Sri Lankan bowlers and the pitch was also not offering much help. In similar conditions expected for the second ODI, we would advise backing most of the English top-order to get fifty-plus scores in the next match.
Katherine Brunt was the best bowler for England in the first ODI as she ran through the top-order with some help from Anya Shrubsole as well. These two bowlers showed exactly what the Sri Lankan bowlers were doing wrong by bowling the hard lengths and making the batsmen take risks to get their runs.
Kate Cross also picked up two wickets and most of the bowlers were very economical. The bowling lineup would have been a bit disappointed at letting the tail-enders get away with some lusty hitting at the end but these are small concerns.

The side winning the toss will like to field first with all the rain around
Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.
The second ODI between Sri Lankan women and England women is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota. There is some rain forecast for match day and we don’t think we are going to as lucky as we were with the first game.
There is more rain expected and we could have a shorter game or a complete wash-out.
Backing the English women as the winners does not have much value but there is nothing to suggest Sri Lankan women are going to be able to cause an upset. Rain could be a spoilsport but also provide Sri Lankan women to maybe sneak in a win with just a few overs played a side.
Back the England women to win.
