By scoring a test century on debut,she became only the eight batswoman to score a test hundred on debut. After Chamani Seneviratne's century on debut, in Sri Lanka cricket's history the first-ever test centurions on debuts for both Sri Lanka men's national cricket team as well as Sri Lanka women's national cricket team came on debuts of Brendon Kuruppu and Seneviratne, respectively. An all-rounder, she has played one Test and 47 One Day Internationals for Sri Lanka. Chamani Seneviratne has scored the most runs on debut test for Sri Lanka (148 runs in both innings) and she is also the leading runscorer for Sri Lanka in test matches, despite Sri Lanka Women's managing to play their only test in 1998. Her 148 runs on debut was also the fifth-highest by a woman on test debut.
She holds the record for the highest test score made by any woman cricketer when batting at number 8 position or lower in women's test history (105*).
In May 2018, she was named in the United Arab Emirates women's cricket team squad for the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier tournament. She made her Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) for the United Arab Emirates against the Netherlands in the World Twenty20 Qualifier on 7 July 2018.
