Damith Perera (22) is quite the prospect playing his third season for Kurunegala Youth Cricket Club in Sri Lankan first-class cricket. A left-hand top-order batsman who keeps wicket, the former Maliyadeva College star has excelled in his promising career to date.

At the point of writing, Perera sits second on the Premier League Tournament (Tier B) run charts this summer with 603 runs at 60.30 with two centuries (116, 106) and four fifties (67, 90, 67*, 62). These impressive numbers back up his 2017/18 season where he chalked up 531 runs at 37.92 (1x100, 4x50s) to finish second on KYCC’s run charts.

Despite his age, Perera is already an accomplished run-maker who seems destined for higher honours. He hopes to finish the domestic season with a bang before embarking on his maiden UK league stint, having recently signed with Farnworth Social Circle for their 2019 Bolton League campaign.
