Cricket news - Sri Lanka Cricket awards contracts to women players

Athapaththu (pic), Siriwardene and Ranaweera have been placed in top category.

Sri Lanka Cricket has awarded 20 national players and 15 emerging players contracts for six months and three months respectively, it was announced on Sunday (October 27). The national players have been grouped in four categories while the emerging players have "a fixed monthly rate and an attendance allowance".

Chamari Athapaththu, Shashikala Siriwardene and Inoka Ranaweera have been put in Group A category while Group B and Group D have five players each with seven players placed in Group C. "The 'contracted' players were nominated by the National Women's Selection Committee, based on the performance, availability and future requirements," the SLC said in a release. "National cricketers are also given an additional monthly allowance to purchase supplements."

The release, however, doesn't mention how much each category will be paid. Sri Lanka players have just concluded their tour of Australia where they played three T20Is and three ODIs which were part of the ICC Women's ODI Championship. While they lost every game during the tour, Athapaththu starred for the visitors and scored a century in the first T20I and third ODI.
