Udeshika Prabodhani will be the second woman player from Sri Lanka to play in the first-ever privately-funded FairBreak T20 women's cricket event in Dubai early next month. The event is organized by Cricket Hong Kong.
“Along with Chamira Atapattu, the 36-year-old left-arm medium-pacer Udeshika Prabodhani will reach UAE (United Arab Emirates) this week,”
Ravi Nagdev, the General Manager, Cricket Hong Kong said.
The tournament is scheduled to run from May 01 to May 15.
"The Fairbreak T20 is something that Fairbreak Global and Cricket Hong Kong have been working on for years. It's an event that features 90 players from 35 countries, no other cricket tournament in the world has players from so many countries,” Nagdev added.
"It's about putting the profile on Female Cricket and also growing the Cricket Market. Imagine players from Bhutan, Hong Kong, Philippines, Tanzania, Japan playing together with Suzie Bates, Heather Knight, and or Laura Wolvaardt.”
"Former ICC umpire Simon Taufel will lead an officiating team from nine countries. He will be the mentor umpire assisting with performance development functions for the FairBreak officiating team,” he added.  
Both players will return to Sri Lanka after the tournament in Dubai. Chamari Atapattu is likely to be named captain for Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan.
The team for Pakistan will be managed by Nishantha de Silva, who works in the Navy as a Rear Admiral.
