Damith Perera is quite the prospect playing 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.

Last season (2018/19), Perera 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.

Despite his age, Perera is already an accomplished run-maker who seems destined for higher honours. He hopes to continue his form into the 2019/20 season, before heading abroad again in 2020.

Last summer, he played his maiden UK season for Farnworth Social Circle for the Bolton League. 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.
