Sri Lanka team remained unbeaten throughout the tournament so did the opposition side just before the final. With the giants India missing out on the tournament due to their mockery at the SAG 2016 games it was an easy grab for the islanders if they drew the cards right.
As predicted both the teams were top notch in their defense and it was not an easy ask to swish the nets with the pressure of final game landing on all their shoulders.
Sri Lanka squad: Premila Fernando, Prasadi Fonseka, Natasha Parera, Anjalee Ekanayake, Inoka Sandamali, Sanduni Bollegala, Erandi Rajapakse, Niroshini Paiva, Erandi Gallage, Jayeliya Kumari, Kumarine Silva, Imesha Thathgarani.
Head coach: T. M. Amath
Asst. coach: Anuradha Wijesinghe
Manager: Paul Newmen
