Chamari records most sixes in 2023 women’s cricket

Sri Lanka women’s cricket captain Chamari Athapaththu has become the top player to hit the most number of sixes in ODI and T20 formats in the year 2023. 

Chamari has delivered the hits with 21 sixes in eight innings in ODIs, with New Zealand’s Sophie Devine and Ellis Perry following the Sri Lankan all rounder, with 9 sixes each. 

In T20 internationals in 2023, Chamari records 15 sixes in 16 innings, followed by Hayley Matthews of the West Indies hitting 14 sixes in 14 innings. Australia’s Ellyse Perry comes in third with 11 sixes across 10 innings. 

The 33-year-old Sri Lankan all rounder, having made her international debut in 2009 against India, recently made headlines as she remained unsold in the first round of auctions for the second season of the Women’s Premier League (WPL).

Chamari, who was named the Player of the Tournament in the recently concluded Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) also went unsold during the first edition of the WPL.
