Mumbai: Feb 5, 2013

Sri Lanka beat India by 138 runs to knock them out of the 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Needing 251 to qualify for the Super Sixes, Indian batting failed to click as they lost half their side with only 69 runs on the board. A resilliant batting display by Jhulan Goswami and Reema Malhotra revived India’s hope. However, that was too little as they could manage only a 47-run stand before Goswami perished.

Malhotra continued to fight and scored a gritty 51-ball 38, but wasn’t well supported at the other end as wickets were falling at regular intervals. Malhotra’s knock included four boundaries. The Indian innings folded soon after her dismissal.

Sri Lankan skipper Shashikala Siriwardene and Chamani Seneviratne bagged two wickets each.

Earlier, Sri Lanka’s batting fired in unison as they posted a competitive 282 for five.

Deepika Rasangika led the way with a knock of 84 while Kaushalya provided the late impetus with a breezy, unbeaten 31-ball 56 to propel the visitors.

Yasoda Mendis (55) and Shashikala Siriwardene (56) were the other contributors for Sri Lanka.

But it was the match winner against England, Kaushalya’s blinder of a knock that lifted the Lankans. Her innings was studded with six fours and three sixes.

Opting to bat, Sri Lanka lost their first wicket in the first over itself, when left-hander Chamari Athapaththu was caught at first slip by Raj off pacer Goswami.

But Mendis and one-down batter Rasangika stabilised the innings and scored runs at a quick rate.

The duo forged a 117-run stand for the second wicket in 140 balls, before Mendis was caught by Gouher Sultana at mid-on off the bowling of Amita Sharma.

For India, former skipper Goswami bagged three wickets for 63 runs in her 10 overs.

Rasangika, during here 151-minute stay at the crease, struck 11 fours. India tried to rein in the run rate even as Rasangika shared a 67-run partnership with skipper Siriwardene for the fourth wicket.

She was dismissed, when Raj ran backwards to take a catch at extra cover off Goswami.

The Sri Lankan skipper and Lokusooriya upped the ante adding 58 runs in 43 balls. Siriwardene, who scored 59 in 67 balls, was run out in the 47th over.

Incidentally, this was India’s first defeat to Sri Lanka in 18 matches, having won their previous 16 encounters with one ending in no result.

India will play Pakistan for the seventh position in Cuttack on Thursday.
