India produced a clinical performance to register a convincing nine-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first ODI of the ICC Women’s Championship here Tuesday.
India women produced an incisive bowling effort to bundle out Sri Lanka women for a meagre 98 in 35.1 overs after the home side opted to bat first and then chased down the target with consummate ease, reaching 100 in 19.5 overs, losing just one wicket.
Medium-pacer Mansi Joshi (three for 16) and veteran Jhulan Goswami (two for 13) wreaked havoc at the top. Poonam Yadav picked up two wickets.
Skipper Chamari Atapattu top-scored for Sri Lanka with a struggling 93-ball 33.
The scores: Sri Lanka 98 (Chamari Atapattu 33, Mansi Joshi three for 16) lost to India 100 for 1 (Smriti Mandhana 73).
