Chamari Athapaththu has won the ICC Women’s Player of the Month award for May 2024.

Athapaththu beat Scotland captain Kathryn Bryce and England’s Sophie Ecclestone for the monthly gong.

This is the second time the Sri Lanka star has won this award. She previously won the title  in September last year.

The all-rounder is firmly established as a modern-day great as Sri Lanka’s highest run-getter in both white-ball formats.  The 34-year-old smashed a century last month at the  ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2024. She finished the event as the leading run-scorer, giving Sri Lanka the title and helping the island nation earn their place at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Athapaththu scored 151 runs at an average of 37.75 and was impressive with the ball too as she picked up six scalps at merely 9.16 runs per wicket, in her four games during the month of May.
