Shohan Rangika (28) is a hugely talented spin bowling all-rounder currently plying his trade in Australia following an excellent domestic career in Sri Lanka. At the point of writing, Rangika is dominating the Victorian Turf Cricket Association (VTCA) for Melton Centrals with 28 wickets at 10.86. Whilst he hasn’t scored the volume of runs he’s capable of, he has still racked up 345 runs at 34.50, including a highest score of 128.

Before embarking on his Australian stint, Rangika spent 4 seasons playing for Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club across the three formats. With the ball, he starred – 62 wickets at 26.06, 16 wickets at 20.50 and 10 wickets at 22.70 in first-class, List A and T20 respectively.

His final season (2017/18) was his most dominant. He finished inside the top ten leading wicket-takers in Sri Lanka’s Premier Tournament (Tier B) with 33 poles at 18.81, including three 5 wicket hauls. He was amongst the leading bowlers in the One Day competition with 10 wickets at 14.10 – taking yet another 5-wicket haul. He then took 7 wickets at 17 in the T20 competition to conclude his wicket-filled season. As indicated, Rangika is a genuine all-rounder who scored three first-class fifties and averaged 26.75 and 20.87 in the two white ball formats.

The talented bowling all-rounder is no longer playing first-class, yet still qualifies for a Tier 5 visa having played more than five matches within the past 24 months. Therefore, he is looking to play UK league cricket as a professional in 2019 and is someone who comes highly recommended not only as a cricketer, but as a nice bloke who will get fully integrated with whichever club he joins.
