    Chamari’s record-breaking 195* brings a memorable victory to Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka women’s cricket team managed to equal the ODI series after winning by six wickets in the 3rd ODI against South Africa yesterday.

    Chamari Atapattu, who played a record innings of the captaincy in this match in South Africa, scored an unbeaten 195 runs to beat South Africa’s target of 301/5.

    This is Sri Lanka’s and the world’s highest successful chase (305/4) in a Women’s ODI match.

    Another highlight of this match is Chamari Athapattu’s career-best ODI score, which is also the third-highest individual score by a batsman in the World Women’s ODIs.

    This 195* of Chamari is also the highest individual score in a successful run chase in Women’s ODIs and the second highest in both Men’s and Women’s ODIs.

    It is also the 2nd highest individual total by a Sri Lankan (Men and Women) in ODIs.

    In this match, which became a battle of the captains, Chamari Atapattu defeated the South African captain Laura Wolvaardt’s score of 184*.

    The match marked the highest score by a South African player and her fourth century since taking over as captain last September.

    Athapattu and Nilakshika de Silva put on a 179-run fifth-wicket partnership, the second-highest for a fifth-wicket stand, to lift Sri Lanka to victory from 126 for 4 in the 21st over.

    Sri Lanka 305/4 (44.3 Overs) (Athapatthu 195, De Silva 50, Khaka 2-54)

    South Africa 301/5 (50 Overs) (Wolvaardt 184*, Dilhari 2-47)
