India are a very challenging side to take on and may already be picturing themselves with the trophy. Sri Lanka though are not far from springing a surprise after the performances they have put together in the tournament.

IND-W vs SL-W Key Players
Finals are often determined by one good moment. A strong innings, or a quick and game changing spell is all that is needed to change the momentum. Renuka Singh is truly capable of pulling off a momentum changing spell. She has not done so yet in the tournament. While the pitches are not as helpful to her, she still has the capability and will want to finish the Asia Cup with an impactful performance.
Earlier this year, Chamari Athapaththu had some good scores against India. She is probably Sri Lanka’s best player at the moment and they will be riding on her as they hope to get past the Indian team in the early parts of this tournament

IND-W vs SL-W Match Tips
Sri Lanka did show a little promise against India earlier in the year but will have a lot of work to do if they are to beat India. India are coming in after some World-Class performances. While the World will be hoping along with Sri Lanka for a Sri Lankan surprise, it will be very tough for them to deliver. An interesting Finals is on the cards, with many rooting for Sri Lanka, but odds say that normal favorites India could play spoilsports to Sri Lanka’s party.
