After being sent into bat by the Indian skipper, Sri Lankan women started their innings badly in the second T-20 at Colombo as they lost the wickets of BYA Mendis, AC Jayangani and WK Dilhari, before rain delayed the start of play by half and hour.
The Lankans were reeling at 49/3 with the opposition skipper Chamari Atapattu back in the pavilion.
Atapattu looked set for a big score before she was bowled by Deepti Sharma for 21 runs. Her innings consisted of 2 fours and 1 six.
Her opening partner Mendis fell cheaply for 1 run off the bowling of Arundhati Reddy.
Kavisha Dilhari who was promoted up the order after her magnificent performances in the previous games failed to get going as she fell to Poonam Yadav caught by Reddy.
Play was eventually called off with only 7.5 overs being bowled.
