It was a dominant display from India as they limited Sri Lanka to a paltry 65 for nine after being asked to bowl and then chased down the target in 8.3 overs.
Vice-captain Smriti Mandhana made unbeaten 51.
Earlier, Sri Lankan batters imploded on a track offering turn after their skipper decided to bat.
For India, pacer Renuka Singh took three wickets for five runs in three overs, while spinners Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Sneh Rana took a couple of wickets each.
Harmanpreet lauded her bowlers and the fielding unit after the win.
“”We should credit our bowlers. Our fielding unit was good from ball one and we discussed that we should not give away easy runs. You have to read the wicket and accordingly place the fielders in right positions,” Harmanpreet said at the presentation ceremony.
