Sugandika Kumari made a swift impact when she entered the international cricket scene in January 2015. In her very first ODI against Pakistan, she showcased her bowling prowess, claiming three crucial wickets while conceding just 24 runs. Kumari’s transition to T20I cricket was equally seamless, and she made her debut in the same series.
One of her standout moments was in ODIs when she achieved her best bowling figures of 4-39 against India, merely a year after her international debut. Kumari’s consistent performances were evident in the 2016 ICC Women’s World Twenty20, where she impressed with figures of 3-24 against Ireland and 2-24 against South Africa. Her contributions to the team led to her inclusion in Sri Lanka’s squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2020, a testament to her skills and dedication to the sport.
