Heshan Hettiarchchi is a genuine seam bowling all-rounder playing for the star-studded Sri Lanka Army Sports Club.

Playing alongside national stars including the likes of Suekkuge Prasanna, Tharindu Kaushal, Tissara Perera, Asela Gunaratne, and Dinesh Chandimal, the quick has impressed since his debut in February 2019.

The Army has been one of the form sides in Sri Lankan domestic cricket, both prior to, and since the return of cricket post-COVID. Hettiarchchi has been integral to this success, helping them to the Premier League Tournament (Tier A) Super Eights (2019/20), Twenty20 Final (2020/21), and three successive Limited Overs Semi-Finals (2019/20, 20/21, 21/22).

The all-rounder made an immediate impact on Sri Lankan domestic cricket in 2019/20, finishing as the Limited Overs Tournament’s third-leading wicket-taker (13 wickets at 16.53) for Colombo Cricket Club. He backed up with a strong red ball 2020/21 season (164 runs at 23.42 and 12 wickets), and T20 campaign (10 wickets at 14.30).

In the most recent One Day Tournament, Hettiarchchi once again starred taking a further 9 wickets at 17.77, before representing Galle District in both the National Super League Limited Over and Major Clubs T20 Touranaments, respectively.

A brisk, and skillful pacer, who is known as a hard-hitting batter in the lower-middle order, Hettiarchchi has long been regarded as a player with national potential. He excelled in Sri Lanka’s Under-19 (Division 1) Two Day Tournament taking 84 wickets at 18.61 alongside 1,033 runs at 25.20 with two centuries, before breaking into Senior cricket.

Now a fully established member of the Army side, the all-rounder is looking to break into international cricket in future.

For now, though, he hopes to impress for the 2022/23 Sri Lankan domestic season before exploring his maiden UK stint in 2023.
