Sudara Dakshina (23) is an exciting left-arm spinner playing for Sri Lanka Navy in Tier B of Sri Lanka’s Provincial Tournament. The tweaker broke into first-class cricket in 2016/17 and excelled taking 19 wickets at 14.10. He then backed-up his success with a further 29 wickets at 21.37 in 2017/18 to finish narrowly outside the top ten wicket-takers in the tournament.

Dakshina plays alongside fellow CricX client Dushan Hemantha who starred for Alnmouth and Lesbury in the Northumberland and Tyneside Senior League last summer. He picked up two five wicket hauls in first-class last season, namely 6-92 v Police SC and 8-80 v Galle CC, then took another 5fa on his List A debut against Negambo (5-28) in his next match.

The talented spinner is now eager to showcase is skills in UK league cricket this year. A fantastic performer and given his skill set, should be a fantastic signing for any club in 2019.
