SL-W VS EN-W:England Women would look to start their tour of Sri Lanka on a winning note when they meet the hosts in the first of the three-match ODI at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota. The tourists will be bursting with confidence after a successful tour of India where they claimed both One Day International and Twenty 20 International series. England have rested some of their regulars, a clear indication of trying out the fringe players.
Meanwhile, Sri Lankan Women have made some changes to their squad that was involved in the sides last International assignment in South Africa. The Lankans had a horrible time in South Africa as they were clean swept 3-0. Playing at familiar conditions at home, they can be expected to put on a better show.
