Boston return for prolific Jayaratne - 05/09/18

Ishan Jayaratne Profile

Boston are delighted to announce the re-signing of their prolific Pro, Ishan Jayaratne for a second season in 2019.

The Sri Lankan seam bowling all-rounder has been, without doubt, the best Pro in the Lincolnshire County Board Premier League.

With one week remaining, the former Sri Lankan prospect has scored 1,007 runs at 77.46 and taken 53 wickets at 11.11. He sits second and third on the Premier League wicket and run charts, respectively.

In all forms of cricket for Boston, Jayaratne has racked up 1,702 runs at 74 with 4 hundreds alongside 66 wickets at 11.91 to include 3 five wicket hauls.

Arguably his best performance has come against Market Deeping, where he struck a brilliant 148* (122 balls) before taking figures of 5-35 (13).

That said, his hundred against this summer's Premier League title winners, Bracebridge Heath, would rank up there too, especially given he scored 130 not out (from 129-balls) in his sides first innings total of 199 - the next highest scorer struck 15. 

We wish Boston and their prolific Pro, Ishan Jayaratne, all the very best for their final fixture of the season, away to Bracebridge Heath, before the latter returns home to Sri Lanka thereafter.
