Women's World Cup 2013 Live Score Sri Lanka vs New Zealand Super6
After an exciting group phase that had its fair share of upsets, the Super Six stage of the ICC Women’s World Cup kicks off today with New Zealand taking on giant killers Sri Lanka at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Bombay.
New Zealand is the fancied side in the contest but the early morning start could be a potential banana skin should Sri Lanka bowl first in what have been helpful conditions. Until the ICC Women’s World Cup started, Sri Lanka had not beaten any of the top four sides – India, Australia, England and New Zealand – but that soon changed after it beat England and India the group stages. After having accounted for two of the four in the group stages, Sri Lanka will be attempting to make it four out of four in the Super Sixes. All-rounder Eshani Kaushalya will once again be the key player for the Sri Lankans with her medium pace bowling and attacking batting in the middle-order. Sri Lanka captain Shashika Siriwardena has always stressed on the side’s newfound confidence and nothing stops the team from believing that another upset is around the corner. "I think it’s an open tournament now. We have enough chances to beat anyone. If players can continue the performances that they have given during group stages also, then there is a possibility of going for the trophy," said Siriwardena.
