Christchurch: The Sri Lankan women's cricket team unlike their male counter parts, are yet to carve a niche for themselves. Making their debut in the 1997 World Cup just three months after the Women's Cricket Association of Sri Lanka was formed, Sri Lanka managed a lone win against the West Indies. This time around they intend to do much better. In the words of coach Guy de Alwis this team is out to cause a few upsets. His hard-core approach has definitely done a lot to lift the standards of this Sri Lankan team. The coach says the girls realise that if they have to compete at this level they have to pour in a lot of hard work and so tenders no apology for his no-nonsense approach.Alwis kept wickets for Sri Lanka during the 80's and was a regular member of the squad.
