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.
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.
