Sameera Sadamal (24) is a talented batting all-rounder (off-spin) and natural born leader. The latter was evidenced when named captain for Sri Lanka Navy Sports Club in his debut first-class season in 2016/17. He has since moved to Kalutara Town, where he'll continue playing throughout the 2018/19 season.

Sadamal has starred in Sri Lanka's Premier Tournament (Tier B) for both Navy Sports Club (2016/17) and Kalutara Town (2017/18). To date, he has scored 714 runs at 31.04 in 16 first-class games. On his debut, skippering Navy Sports Club, he struck a brilliant century (105*) against Kurunegala Youth and finished the domestic season with 448 runs at 40.72 – adding a further two half-centuries against SL Air (59) and KPCC (79). Whilst less prolific for Kalutara Town last summer (266 runs at 22.16), he did score his second first-class century.

A right-handed batsman and talented off-spinner spinner, Sadamal broke into first-class cricket following a glittering junior career at St Benedit’s College, Colombo culminating with inclusion for the Sri Lankan Development XI. Since leaving school in 2013, he has represented the Sailors. In 2015/16, he chalked up 413 runs at 31.77 in the Emerging Tournament and 219 runs at 36.50 in the Under-23 One-Day Competition.

Sadamal has also enjoyed success during two seasons abroad for Millom in the strong North Lancashire and Cumbria Premier League. He has season tally's of 587 runs at 48.92 / 38 wickets at 14.08 (2017) and 649 runs at 38.18 / 26 wickets at 25.12 (2018), respectively. Courtesy of his success, Millom have re-signed the talented Kalutara Town all-rounder once again, for the 2019 season.
