South African Women team are set to host Sri Lanka Women team for a 3 match T20I and ODI series. The opening game of the tour will take place in Capetown. The visitors are ready to make a statement on the international circuit in this tour. While the Proteas must be eager to dominate the Lankan side in the opening match to start off the series well.

Sri Lanka have made few changes in their squad by bringing uncapped Tharika Sewwandi, Anushka Sanjeewani, Imalka Mendis, Harshitha Madavi, Umesha Thimashini, Achini Kulasuriya and Inoka Ranaweera into the team.

The home side will be without their vice-captain Chloe Tryon as she is ruled out the T20 series due to her injury. Sunne Luus will join the squad to replace her for the upcoming series.
