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 chase the target in 8.3 overs.
Vice Captain Smriti Mandhana made an unbeaten 51.
Previously, Sri Lankan batters imploded on a court-offering turn after their skipper decided to hit.
For India, pacer Renuka Singh took three wickets for five runs in three overs, while spinners Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Sneh Rana each took a pair of wickets.
Harmanpreet praised its bowlers and the fielding unit after the win.
“”We have to credit our bowlers. Our fielding unit was good from ball one and we discussed not giving away easy runs. You have to read the wicket and put the fielders in the right positions accordingly,” Harmanpreet said at the presentation ceremony.
