WATCH: Sri Lankan Chamari sings Indian national anthem during WPL match, wins hearts

WPL 2024: Initially, Chamari Athapaththu was not picked in the WPL Auctions, and was a late injury replacement in UP Warriorz.

The first WPL 2024 encounter between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals on Friday, in Bengaluru, was a memorable one with Harmanpreet Kaur & Co. going past the finishing line with a last ball six by S Sajana. There were other notable performances too in the match, that will be remembered for long, with Delhi all-rounder Alice Capsey slamming 75, and then bagging two wickets.

But one particular moment, that transpired during the match, albeit off the field, has managed to catch the attention of the fans in India. UP Warriorz’s late-signing Chamari Athapaththu, who will play her team’s first match on Saturday, was seen singing the Indian national anthem, when DC and MI lined up for the ceremony.

Meanwhile, UP play their first match on 24th Feb, against Smriti Mandhana’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.
