Charith Jayampathi (28) is an outstanding left-arm quick bowling all-rounder playing domestic cricket for Sri Lanka Ports Authority Cricket Club. A genuine all-rounder, Jayampathi is a skilful quick, hard-hitting batsman and an intellegent cricketer with exceptional leadership skills. 

He is a player that seemed destined for big things following 28 outings for the Sri Lankan Under-19s, to include the ICC Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand back in 2010. In August 2013, he represented the Sri Lankan Under-23s in the Asian Cricket Council Emerging Teams Cup and, at that point, was nudging international selection. However, despite dominant performances on the domestic circuit, he hasn’t progressed to the national side.

Nevertheless, Jayampathi continues to excel for SLPACC and boasts excellent stats across all formats, with over 150 wickets and 1,600 plus runs. In 45 first-class matches, he has 69 wickets at 30.14 and 8 half-centuries amongst 1,195 runs at 29.87.

The talented all-rounder, who will pursue banking following his cricket career, is seeking an opportunity to ply his trade abroad in 2019. At this late stage, Jayampathi would be a brilliant signing given his domestic numbers and sought-after all-round skill set.
