Salesbury is delighted to confirm the signing of Sri Lankan batter Salinda Ushan for their 2022 Ribblesdale League season.

Top bat, top pedigree…

Ushan is an accomplished opening batter playing in Sri Lanka’s top-tier (A) first-class competition.

A left-hander of some pedigree, he represented Sri Lanka Under-19’s in 11 Test (4) and ODI’s (7), to include the ICC World Cup in Bangladesh back in 2016.

He made his first-class debut for Colts Cricket Club in February 2017, before moving to Badureliya (2017/18-19/20), Saracens Sports Club (2020/21), and Moors Sports Club (2021/22).

Excellent FC numbers

The youngster has been a stand-out performer in first-class cricket for Badureliya, with season tallies of 323 runs at 53.83 (2017/18), 574 runs at 38.26 (2018/19), and 314 runs at 28.54 (2019/20).

His time with Badureliya in red-ball cricket yielded 3 centuries amongst 1,211 runs at 37.84.

Saltburn success

The run machine is quite the prospect who ventured to the UK in 2021. Playing for Saltburn, he enjoyed a productive season scoring 524 runs at 40.31 in the North Yorkshire and South Durham Premier League.

Set for Salesbury

The talented batter is now set to return for a second stint in 2022 having recently signed with Salesbury for their Ribblesdale League campaign.
