Chelmsford. Captain Chamari Atapattu described the win as “huge” for Sri Lanka after a stunning all-round performance in their stunning eight-wicket win over England on their maiden T20I.
Chamari scored 55 off 40 balls and led Sri Lanka to chase down England’s score of 104 with 6.4 overs to spare. With the ball, he dismissed Danny Wyatt in the opening over to lay the foundation for a superb bowling performance for Sri Lanka to level the three-match series 1–1.
He said after the match, “I’m really happy with my team’s performance. We learned a lot of things from the last game and we executed all the right plans here. As a captain, as a team, it’s our job.” It’s a big thing for Sri Lanka. It’s a big thing for women’s cricket in Sri Lanka.”
Head coach Malinda Warnapura praised Chamri’s all-round performance. “Chamri has been playing brilliant cricket for a long time. It’s nice to see. It’s never mind watching a men’s game when Chamri is batting, the way she hits the ball so hard and doesn’t worry He is one of the best all-rounders we have in the world.”
Before defeating England, Sri Lanka also beat New Zealand at home for the first time in T20s and also got the better of South Africa in the opening match of the Women’s T20 World Cup in February this year. Former Sri Lanka men’s batsman Warnapura admitted that joining the women’s team was an exciting time.
