Their opener, Chamari Athapaththu, went berserk! She smashed a record-breaking 195 runs – not only her highest score but the second-highest ever in Women’s ODIs – with a flurry of 29 fours and 5 sixes.

Athapaththu’s batting masterclass led Sri Lanka to chase down the target in just 44.3 overs, losing only 4 wickets!

This is the first-ever successful chase of 300+ runs in Women’s ODIs, snatching the record from Australia who chased down 289 runs against New Zealand way back in 2012.

This is a historic win that has sent shockwaves through the Women’s Cricket world. Chamari Athapaththu’s heroics will surely inspire generations to come.

What Does This Win Mean For The Sri Lankan Women’s Cricket Team?
