Atapattu rises in the ranks, regrets she was left behind

Sri Lanka women’s cricket skipper Chamari Atapattu reached the seventh position in the latest ICC T20 all-rounder rankings while also being among the top 20 players in both ODI and T20 formats but regrets she was deprived of opportunities to rise further.

She is in 12th position in the ODI batswomen category and in 14th position in the T20 format. In addition she is ranked 18th in the ODI all-rounder rankings.

“If only I had more chances to take part in international matches I could have improved my ranking but due to this pandemic all plans are jeopardized,” said Atapattu.

The most prolific left hand batter in the Sri Lanka women’s team, Atapattu said it was disappointing not only for her but all her team mates as well.
