Women's T20 World Cup: gifts from the Indian team that remove Siriwardene's signed shirt

SYDNEY: The Indian women's team gave a signed shirt to the retired veteran of Sri Lanka Shashikala Siriwardene . Siriwardene will play his last match when Sri Lanka face Bangladesh for its final 2020 Women's T20 World Cup Group match on Monday.

The Indian t-shirt that was given to Siriwardene bore the name of the captain Harmanpreet Kaur and player signatures. I also had a message that said: Thank you for your contribution to women's cricket. You are a legend and a true athlete. Congratulations on your wonderful career and best wishes for all your future efforts.

The 35-year-old Sri Lanka n all-rounder had announced before the start of the tournament that she would be calling time on her 17-year career at the end of it. She had made her ODI debut against the West Indies in 2003 and was part of the first Sri Lanka n team to play a T20 International in April 2010.

India beat Sri Lanka n by seven wickets on Saturday to preserve their perfect record in the tournament. They have thus won all four of their group matches.
