The national players were handed contracts under four categories – A, B, C and D, while the emerging cricketers were offered a fixed monthly rate and an attendance allowance.
All the contracted players were nominated by the National Women’s Selection Committee, on the basis of their performances and availability. With senior player Shashikala Siriwardene recently retired, only skipper Chamari Athapaththu has been named in the A category.
