BBC Sport’s Henry Moeran in Colombo

We are here before… England restricting Sri Lanka into a below-par full and pursuing their target down with minimal of fuss.

Perhaps the biggest difference was that the new launching partnership: Amy Jones and also Danni Wyatt looked in fine shape at the surface of the order with 7-9 for the first wicket, and a class above anything the hosts would possibly offer.

This T20 series went nearly perfectly for Mark Robinson along with his side, the sole hope is going to be which they are able to get the opportunity to bat first in the final T20 and bend their muscles.

As I looked through the neighborhood paper before the game, there had been not any references to this particular series – that the lack of publicity, interest and also the performances on the pitch all suggesting that the women’s game in Sri Lanka has some thing to do.
