KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana eye massive feats ahead of India’s first game in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022
  • India will take on Sri Lanka on Saturday, October 1 in their opening game of the continental tournament

6-time champions India will begin their campaign in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022 against Sri Lanka in Sylhet in the second game of the opening day of the continental tournament. The Indian women’s team has been in sensational form, especially in the T20Is and will hope to begin the tournament and go one better than the last time after they finished second in 2018 final.

As India take on Sri Lanka on Saturday, October 1, the skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and the vice-captain Smriti Mandhana, who have been the mainstays of the team’s batting will be eyeing huge records.

Harmanpreet, who has been coming off from a player of the series performance in the ODIs against England and had a brilliant time in the UK this summer, is currently India’s highest run-getter in the shortest format. Harmanpreet with 2602 runs to her name needs just four more to overtake England legend and former captain Charlotte Edwards and become the 6th highest run-scorer in all women’s T20Is.

Mandhana, on the other hand, is on 10th in the list with 2303 runs to her name in the shortest format. Mandhana requires 62 runs to not only overtake former captain Mithali Raj (2364) to become India’s second highest run-getter in the format but also rise to 9th spot.
