Gayan Sirisoma is a veteran left-arm spinner who has lorded Sri Lankan domestic cricket for nearly two decades. He is currently the fifth leading wicket-taker in Sri Lankan first-class cricket.

Since his first-class debut in 2002/03, Sirisoma has taken 679 wickets at 19.05 in 123 matches, not to mention 154 wickets at 21.66 in white-ball cricket. He has taken 61 five-wicket bags and 24 ten-wicket match hauls.

He has starred for numerous provincial sides and over the past decade he has dominated for Lankan Cricket Club (2006/07-2011/12 – 148 wickets at 16.95), Panadura Sports Club (2012/13-2016/17 – 202 wickets at 15.85), Galle Cricket Club (2015/16-2017/18 – 101 wickets at 21.73), and Bloomfield Cricket and Athletic Club (2018/19-2019/20 - 64 wickets at 14.03).

He has taken 50 plus wickets in 7 seasons (40 plus in another 2), topped the first-class wicket charts in 2006/07 (60 wickets at 15.50), 2016/17 (91 wickets at 12.28), 2017/18 (55 wickets at 18.61), 2019/20 (64 wickets at 14.03), and finished runner-up in 2012/13 (58 wickets at 15.27) and 2013/14 (53 wickets at 22.62). Proving age is just a number, Sirisoma took 38 wickets at 16.84 in 2018/19 with 3 five-wicket hauls, not to mention his chart-topping season in 2019/20 (64 wickets at 14.03).

Whilst the domestic legend hasn’t featured for Sri Lanka, mainly due to the likes of Murali and Herath, he has excelled abroad during three UK league stints. He starred for Eppleton (2007 - Durham Senior League), East Molesey (2014 – Surrey Championship), and Hornchurch (2019 - Essex Premier League). The highlights - topping the Championship Division 1 wicket-charts for Molesey (52 wickets at 12.25) and 62 wickets at 14.56 in league/cup cricket for Hornchurch in 2019.

The experienced campaigner, who is also an enthusiastic, UKCC level 2 coach, is now keen to embark on his fourth stint abroad in 2022, and thereafter a stint down under. He is someone we whole-heartedly recommend.
