Sri Lanka and Athapaththu finish ‘happy’ and ‘smiling’, South Africa have ‘lots of learnings’

Chamari Athapaththu had not got to fifty in her last 11 T20 innings. She had not even reached double figures in her last five. So when she walked out to bat with Sri Lanka chasing 156 to win a series against South Africa for the first time ever and then saw her opening partner and match-winner from the previous game Vishmi Gunaratne dismissed for 1, you could say she was under some serious pressure. And that is just the way she likes it.
