Boston has re-signed Sri Lankan all-rounder, Adeesha Thilanchana, for their upcoming Lincolnshire County Board Premier League campaign.
White ball prospect
Thilanchana is an exciting prospect playing for the star-studded Moors Sports Club in Sri Lanka. An explosive batsman and skillful left-arm seamer, Thilanchana has played over 60 matches across the three formats, but it’s in T20 cricket he’s excelled.
Since joining Moors in 2017/18, he has taken 23 wickets at 14.30 in Sri Lanka’s T20 Tournaments (8 wickets at 9.75 in 2017/18 and 15 wickets at 14.26 in 2018/19). He finished as the tournament’s third-leading wicket-taker.
Showing his all-round ability, Thilanchana also opened the batting for Moors, producing several notable innings, striking at well over 125. Whilst he has yet to replicate his bowling success in the longer formats, he has shown glimpses of his potential, especially with the bat, hitting half-centuries in both first-class and List A cricket in recent years.
Boston return in 2020
The talented all-rounder is a potential national T20 player and, eager to showcase his skills abroad, he signed with Boston for their Lincolnshire County Board Premier League campaign in 2019. In all cricket, the Sri Lankan struck 1,031 runs at 42.96 and took 27 wickets at 38.11.
After his productive maiden stint, Thilanchana is now set to return to Boston, for a second season in 2020.
