Charged-up by their stunning last-ball win over England on Friday, minnows Sri Lanka will look to a knock-out blow to the West Indies at the MIG Club in Bandra, and book their Super six berth.
The Lankans will depend on Kaushalya Lokusooriya to lead the pace attack against the West Indies whose batting came a cropper while chasing 285 against India on the opening day of the tournament.
The Lanka bowlers, however, need to be wary against the likes of hard-hitting West Indian batter Deandra Dottin who threatened India briefly with a 16-ball 39 containing four sixes and three fours.
Lanka captain Shashikala Siriwardena sounded upbeat about her side's chances. "We have a 70 per cent winning ratio against the West Indies," said Shashikala. "Our main target is to enter into the Super Six."
