Rajith Priyan (30) is an accomplished seam bowling all-rounder who returned to domestic cricket last summer (2017/18) after a season’s hiatus, to play in Australia. He returned to play for Galle Cricket Club, with whom he made his debut back in the 2012/13 season. He enjoyed an excellent season, hitting 249 runs at 35.57 and taking 14 wickets at 37.85, to include career bests 87 and 5-63.

The all-rounder, who spent time with Kingston Heath, Springvale South and Melbourne Eagles Cricket Club’s in Australia, boasts an excellent domestic record in Sri Lanka – particularly in first-class cricket. That said, he also took 8 wickets at 14.75 in the domestic T20 tournament last summer to prove his white ball skills.

The experienced right-arm quick and middle-order batsman, is now looking to showcase his talent in UK league cricket next summer. He is a player that comes highly recommended by fellow CricX client Gamindu Kanishka, who has excelled in England over the years. A fine overseas recruit for any club seeking a seam bowling all-rounder in 2019.
