7. Chamari Athapaththu

Age: 28 Role: LHB, OB Country: Sri Lanka

Buccaneering left-handed opener, Chamari Athapaththu gives the ball a Gilchrist-esque whack at the top of the order. Hits well both over the off-side and the leg-side, she’s long been the fulcrum of the Sri Lanka side but she gave the world a reminder of her talents in last year’s ICC Women’s World Cup when she blasted Australia all around Derby to make 178.
