The stage was set by Sri Lanka's opener, Chamari Atapattu, who carried her bat with a magnificent 178-run knock. Nonetheless, her record-breaking innings (2nd highest score in Women's World Cup, 3rd highest run-scorer in Women ODIs and highest score by Sri Lankan batswomen against Australia) was overshadowed by Meg Lanning's ton in Australia's chase. Atapattu, in the post-match interview, stated her gameplan during the mammoth knock. She tried to make use of the Powerplay overs and termed Sanath Jayasuriya and Kumar Sangakkara as her heroes.
