Following their promotion-winning season, Chippenham have re-signed their prolific pro Adeesha Nanayakkara for 2019.

The Sri Lankan overseas has been an integral part of Chippenham's success this summer, hitting 1,188 runs at 62.53 and taking 34 wickets at 15.41 in his 26 games for the club.

In the West of England Premier League, he was arguably the best all-rounder, topping the Wiltshire Division run charts (810 runs at 54) in addition to taking 24 wickets at 16.17.

The club had no hesitation in re-signing their Sri Lankan star, following promotion to Premier Two (Glos/Wilts) in 2019.
