Sri Lanka in the ‘Super Six’
After trouncing the host country, India, by a huge margin of 138 runs, Sri Lanka qualified to be in the ‘Super Six’ of the Women’s World Cup 2013, played in Mumbai.
Eshani Kaushalya once again smashed another 56, this time off only 31 deliveries to push Sri Lanka’s total to 282 for 5.
She had 3 towering sixes and 6 magnificent fours in her second explosive half century, with an attractive strike rate of 180.
She has already earned the nickname of ‘Chris Gayle’ of Sri Lanka from her ardent fans for her effortless sixes!
This is a superb result for Sri Lankan women who are becoming a genuine force in women’s cricket to reckon, after two neighboring teams, India and Pakistan eliminated from the competition.
We are yet to see the best of our own ‘Chris Gayle’ – Kaushalya the fearless attacker of the ball!
Good luck Sri Lanka.
