Sri Lankan star Sanjika signs for Lancashire League club - 24/03/19

Sanjika Ridma Bowling - THE ONE

Nelson have signed promising Sri Lankan Army star Sanjika Ridma for their 2019 Lancashire League campaign.

Ridma (24) is a star in the making who has recently concluded a strong 2018/19 first class season in Sri Lanka.

The hard-hitting, left-arm spin bowling, all-rounder, scored 657 runs at 41.06 with a century (119) and 6 fifties. Whilst bowling opportunities for SL Army were limited in red ball cricket, he has impressed over the years, especially in the shorter formats.

During his 2016/17 List A campaign with Badulla District, the left-arm tweaker topped the Inter-District Limited Overs tournament wicket charts, taking an incredible 15 poles at 6, with best bowling figures of 5-11.

His efforts were rewarded with the award for the “Best Bowler” at the Dialog Sri Lanka Cricket Awards in November 2017.

Ridma has been on song this summer and is now eager to showcase his skills for Lancashire League's Nelson Cricket Club throughout the upcoming 2019 season.
