WBBL side Sydney Thunder recently came forward to announce the signing of Sri Lanka women’s skipper Chamari Athapaththu ahead of the WBBL 2023–24 season. Notably, Athapaththu was recently snubbed from the overseas draft of the same tournament.

However, her inclusion comes as she was named as an overseas replacement player for Thunder. The 33-year-old has quite the experience when it comes to competing in the WBBL. The Sri Lanka skipper has competed for Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades and was even one of the retention options for Renegades. However, they selected Hayley Matthews and Harmanpreet Kaur as the retentions.

As part of the Thunder lineup, Athapaththu will be part of a heavily experienced lineup that will consist of the likes of Marizanne Kapp, Heather Knight, and Lauren Bell. Knight will be the captain of the side, and the side will kick off their campaign by taking on Sydney Sixers at the North Sydney Oval on October 22.
