Sri Lanka's women's team captain Chamari Athapaththu believes that her recent form and experience of playing in the first ever 20-over FairBreak tournament in Dubai will benefit her in the upcoming tour of Pakistan.
Sri Lankan team is to play three T-20Is followed by three ODIs' in Pakistan.
The 32-year-old bartting all-rounder recently played in the tournament where 90 players from 35 countries participated. She was the top scorer with 313 runs (in 7 matches she played) which also included an unbeaten score of 107 runs.
"I want to continue this form in Pakistan. I am excited about the Pak. tour", she said hours before returning to Colombo (to join the squad for Pak. tour).
"It was really a good opportunity for me, playing against the best overseas players and associate players. FairBreak is a really good platform for all womens cricketers. So I'm keen to play in this league next year also", she added.
Chamari, however, will miss the Indian cricket board-organized My-11 Circle Women’s T20 Challenge in India this month.
The BCCI tournament (May 23-28) will clash with the Sri Lankan women's tour of Pakistan.
