Jedi Champions Barkisland sign Ashan Priyanjan - 05/11/18

Ashan Priyanjan

Following their Championship-winning season, Barkisland have signed Ashan Priyanjan for their 2019 Drakes Premiership campaign.

Priyanjan (29) is a batting all-rounder with over 300 domestic, to include 26 international, matches, under his belt.

In his 23 ODI's, he struck 420 runs at 23.33 with a highest score of 74, struck on debut against Pakistan in December 2013. 

At domestic level, he has excelled - 6,013 runs at 36.44 and 3,636 runs at 31.07 in 113 first-class and 141 List A matches respectively. 

Priyanjan recently stuck 50 for the Sri Lankan Board XI (before retiring out) against a full-strength England attack featuring the likes of Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.

He is set to return to England in 2019, following a short stint with Northern Premier League club Morecambe in 2017.

If he replicates his domestic form, Barkisland will have bagged themselves a fantastic signing for their 2019 Drakes Huddersfield campaign.

Club spokesman, Darren Robinson, was quite rightly, ecstatic with the signing of their Sri Lankan professional.

"Barkisland CC are delighted to sign a player of this calibre and quality, Ashan will bring a lot of experience both on and off the field. We look forward to welcoming Ashan to the club and would like thank CricX for the help provided".
