Sri Lankan womens cricketers face huge blow as selectors drop key players
Sri Lanka selectors have dropped the country's top three top run-getters in the Women's World Cup in Australia from the 14-member squad for next month's World Twenty20.
The players dropped are team captain Shashikala Siriwardene, opening batsman Dedunu Silva and all-rounder Suwini de Alwis.
Siriwardene topped the run-scoring list with 72 runs (at 18.00), and was followed by Dedunu with 68 runs (at 17.00) and Suwini 65 runs (at 16.25). Sri Lanka failed to win any of their three group matches in the World Cup and did not qualify for the Super Six stage.
