Entry Route Tier 5
Major Teams Tamil Union Cricket & Athletic Club, Western Province U19, Prime Minister's U19 XI

Ashan Fernando is a serious prospect playing for the star-studded Tamil Union Cricket and Athletic Club, under the leadership of former Sri Lankan Test batsman, Tharanga Paranavitana.

In a side that also features the likes of Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Kithuruwan Vithanage, and CricX clients Kasun Madushanka and Manoj Manoj Sarathchandra, Fernando has enjoyed a promising start to his professional career, since his debut in January 2020.

Fernando broke into the Tamil Union side following a glittering junior career, for both his College (Maris Stella) and Province (Western-North Under-19s). The batting all-rounder was a stand-out in the Singer U19 Competitions for his Maris Stella College, which he skippered.

A proven leader-of-men, Fernando has also captained both the Western Province Under-19s and also the Tamil Union Under-23 sides in recent years.

Since his Tamil Union debut, Fernando has played 8 matches, scoring a half-century against Nondescripts (65* in only his second T20 outing), before a highest score of 49 against Sinhalese. Whilst bowling opportunities in the strong Tamil side have been limited, he has bowled in 3 of his 6 first-class matches and boasts the legendary UK Pro, Chanaka Ruwansiri, as his maiden wicket.

A hugely talented cricketer, who by all reports is destined for "big things". He comes recommended by none other than former Sri Lankan legend Rangana Herath.

Fernando was set to play for Shropshire County League outfit Wellington Cricket Club in 2021, but due to endorsement delays, he was unable to come over.

He is therefore eager to secure another club nice and early for the UK 2022 season.
