Damith Perera is quite the prospect playing for Tamil Union in Sri Lanka's top-flight domestic competition.

A powerful left-handed top-order batter who can either keep wicket or bowl off-spin, Perera was picked up by Tamil Union in 2020, following stints with Badureliya (2019/20), and his Kurunegala Youth (2017/18-18/19).

In his final season for KY, the former Maliyadeva College star topped the Premier League Tournament (Tier B) run charts with 792 runs at 56.57 to include three centuries (116, 106, 106) and four fifties (67, 90, 67*, 62). These impressive numbers backed up his 2017/18 season where he chalked up 531 runs at 37.92 (1x100, 4x50s) to finish second on KYCC’s run charts.

In 2019/20, though, Perera suffered a dip in form and only averaged 22.20 for BSC. However, he swiftly made amends in August 2020, by hitting twin centuries against Sinhalese Sports Club (113, 112*). In doing so, he became only the 31st player to hit tons in both innings in Sri Lankan first-class cricket.

The talented keeper/batter played his maiden UK season for Farnworth Social Circle for the Bolton League in 2019. Whilst he perhaps under-performed in the league, by his own high standards, he excelled in the T20 competition, to include a high of 101* from only 54 balls against Atherton, en route to a season average of 48.

Last summer, Perera excelled for Northern Irish club Ballyspallen in the North West Cricket Union. Such was his dominance the club was swift to return their Sri Lankan star for a second stint in 2022.
