By 11 runs, SriLanka Women defeated UAE Women using the Duckworth-Lewis formula. UAE had to chase 66 in 11 overs as thunder and lightening stopped the game. However, Kavisha Dilhari and Inoka Ranaweera caused a middle-order breakdown, which made it much easier for Lankan women to successfully defend the objective. In 11 overs, UAE only managed to score 54/7.

However, the game was called off shortly after a lightning strike made the playing surface dangerous. After an hour break, it continued, but SriLankan ladies resisted.
After the rain break, Kavisha Egodage left, and Kavisha Dilhari took her place. UAE were now need to go above 6 an over with the revised aim of 66. But because of the sluggish surface, several wickets fell quickly one after the other. UAE began to sputter at 21/2 and found themselves at 44/7.
