Roscoe Thattil (26) is an accomplished first-class batting all-rounder playing for Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club in Tier B of Sri Lanka’s Premier Tournament. In 36 first-class matches, Thattil has scored 2,020 runs at 36.07 and taken 20 wickets at 32.40, not to mention the small matter of 19 wickets at 16.15 (SR: 14.50) in domestic T20 cricket. 

Thattil has been a key member of the SL Air Force side, hitting season tally's of 399 runs at 44.33 (2016/17), 459 runs at 32.78 (2017/18) and 164 runs at 41 (2018/19). Whilst bowling opportunities have been limited in red ball cricket, he has starred in T20 cricket, taking 8 wickets at 13 (2017/18) and 5 wickets at 19.80 (2018/19) in recent seasons.

The all-rounder made his first-class debut for SL Air Force back in 2011/12, before stints with Burgher Recreation Club (2012/13), Ragama Cricket Club (2014/15) and Bagureliya Sports Club (2015/16). Thattil has also enjoyed success abroad, with stints in England (2013), New Zealand (2013/14) and Australia (2014/15).

During his maiden overseas trip, Thattil struggled with the bat, but excelled with the ball, finishing third on the Southern Premier League (Division 1) wicket charts. The all-rounder then headed down under, playing a season in the Wellington Premier Competition for Johnsonville. This time, he produced the goods with the bat, scoring 429 runs at 39, albeit was used sparingly with the ball. In 2014/15, Thattil played over the ditch in Australia for Newcastle District Cricket Association club Charlestown District. He scored 450 runs at 22.50 and took 28 wickets at 19.25 in a solid season’s first grade.

Thattil is not only a quality cricketer, but an intellegent bloke, who comes highly recommended by numerous sources, including Sri Lankan domestic legend Dinuka Hettiarachchi. He has recently signed with Drakes Huddersfield club Kirkburton where he hopes to impress for the 2019 season.
