09:05 hrs IST: Good evening everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the ICC Women's T20 Cricket World Cup fixture between India and Sri Lanka. Having already sealed their semifinal berth, Harmanpreet Kaur's side will be hoping to work on their batting issues against a team, who have had a very poor tournament.

India have been in fine form in the women's T20 World Cup. They have beaten hosts and defending champions Australia, Bangladesh and New Zealand but can't afford to take Sri Lanka lightly. The Lankan girls have lost two matches are out of the semifinal race.

Considering their excellent form, India still have a lot of work to do, especially their batting performance. In all three previous outings, India have failed to reach big totals, having managed 132 against Australia, 142 against Bangladesh and 133 versus New Zealand.

Also, India's middle-order has failed to build on the excellent starts by the pugnacious Shafali Verma. In all three matches, the bowling department has come to India's rescue and bailed out Harmanpreet Kaur's team.

The team is also over-reliant on the 16-year-old Shafali, who has covered up poor batting displays by Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet. The youngster has scored 29, 39 and 46 in the three games.

Harmanpreet has rued the inability of her batswoman to capitalise on good starts and cautioned them against making "silly mistakes" in the knock-out rounds.

"It's a great feeling when your team performs day in day out. Still, we made the same mistakes after a good first 10 overs, we got a good start but couldn't carry the momentum," Harmanpreet has said.

"We can't make silly mistakes with harder games coming up. Shafali (Verma) is giving us good starts, her initial runs are crucial for us," she added.

Meanwhile, the bowling unit has been excellent for India. Leggie Poonam Yadav has registered eight wickets so far, and has supported well by the likes of Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Deepti Sharma and pacer Shikha Pandey.

Teams (from):

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Taniya Bhatia, Harleen Deol, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Richa Ghosh, Veda Krishnamurthy, Smriti Mandhana, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Deepti Sharma,
Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav.

Sri Lanka: Chamari Atapattu (Captain), Harshitha Madavi, Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, Ama Kanchana, Hansima Karunaratne, Achini Kulasuriya, Sugandika Kumari, Hasini Perera, Udeshika Prabodhani, Sathya Sandeepani, Anushka Sanjeewani,
Shashikala Siriwardene, Dilani Manodara, Umesha Thimashini.
