"I want to see my team in the semi-finals of the World Cup. I've worked so hard in the last 15 years and I've achieved a few things as a player but as a captain, I want to do more. I want to see my team in the semi-final of this World Cup. That's my wish," Athapaththu was quoted by ESPNcricinfo as saying.

She accepted that it would be a "big task" for them to compete against "good" teams in the qualifying round of the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. The 34-year-old further added that they will be taking one game at a time.

"I know it is a very big task for us. Every team is really good and every game is really important for us. We will focus on one game at a time," she added.
