Chamari Athapaththu:

The captain of Sri Lanka is in great form having mustered two half-centuries in three matches. The left handed opening batter has provided a solid start to Sri Lanka in all the three matches in the tournament. Apart from her batting, she is more than a handy right arm off spinner.
