    LIVE: Sri Lanka Women 37/1 in 8.4 overs | Batting: Yasoda Mendis 11, Chamari Atapattu 13: Sri Lanka Women lose their first as Nipuni Hansika departs for 10. Keeping the runrate low and playing safe did not work for the team. The target being very low, just one wicket will not be much of help for Bangladesh Women.
