In the opening game of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 between England and India, where India posted a total of 218/3, the 34-year-old broke two world records.

India vs Sri Lanka LIVE Cricket Score, ICC Women's World Cup 2017: After winning the first three matches comprehensively, Indian women cricket team will start as favourites against neighbours Sri Lanka in their fourth match of the ongoing Women's World Cup.

In 2013, Sri Lanka pulled off a major upset in the history of World Cup Cricket when they ripped through the Indian battling line-up after posting a stiff target of 283 runs at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. "We need to work on our partnerships as batters", said Raj.

The ODI match between India and Sri Lanka will be played on Wednesday, July 5, 2017, at County Ground, Derby.

However, it is a different story now for the Indian girls in the 11th edition of the Women's World Cup.

India's Jhulan Goswami and Poonam Yadav dismissed two Sri Lankan batswomen each while Ekta Bisht and Deepti Sharma also grabbed a wicket. SriLanka-W has played three matches and lost all the three matches. T20I skipper and opener Hasini Perera's promotion to the top of the order delivers them instant results and if Sri Lanka perseveres with the combination, Chamari Polgampola could continue to stay out of the team. She is ahead of high profile names like Sarah Taylor of England and Australia' Alyssa Healy (niece of legendary Australian wicket-keeper Ian Healy and wife of Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc). While, Sri Lankan eves have been struggling at the World Cup as they yet to taste the victory.

Mansi Joshi, who made her dream World Cup debut in the last match will most likely to remain the part of playing XI. She may soon also become the first woman cricketer to cross the 6000-runs mark.

The duo first resurrected India's innings and opened up once they got their eyes in.
