Jehan Daniel is an outstanding prospect who has excelled, both home and abroad, in recent years. Recognised as one of the most gifted all-rounders in Sri Lankan cricket, Daniel has already forged quite the reputation.

After featuring for the Sri Lanka Under-19’s on 39 occasions (34 ODIs, 5 Tests) between 2015 and 2018, he has since been a regular member of Sri Lanka’s Under-23 and Emerging Players sides, touring South Africa (July 2019), Bangladesh (August 2019), and Nepal (Dec 2019).

A genuine seam bowling all-rounder, Daniel moved to play for Lankans Cricket Club this summer (2022/23), having previously represented Colts Cricket Club, alongside fellow CricX stars including Sangeeth Cooray, Priyamal Perera, Nisala Tharaka, and Hashan Dumindu. He broke into the Colts set-up in 2018/19 and enjoyed a productive maiden SLC Premier Tournament (first-class) scoring 298 runs at 24.83 and taking 15 wickets at 29.86.

Daniel seems destined for the big stage and, it’s not hard to see why given his skillset. An explosive batter in the top-middle order, who opens the bowling. He is a player of serious promise who features high on Sri Lanka’s radar

Looking to showcase his talent abroad, Daniel headed to England in 2022 and ripped up the Devon League for A Division club Exeter. He belted 931 runs at 49 across league and cup cricket, alongside 37 wickets at 16.86. However, it was the way he batted that really caught the eye, hitting 3 blistering centuries, namely 138 from 59 balls (10x4s, 13x6s) v Premier outfit Paignton, 111 from 70 balls (6x4s, 7x6s) v Budleigh Salterton, and 112 from 60 balls (9x4s, 7x6s) v Seaton. During a red hot period in May/June, Daniel struck 588 of his runs with an average of 117.60 and strike rate approaching 200!

It's fair to say Daniel has impressed and is now eager to secure another UK deal in 2023. He will clearly be a sought-after acquisition, as there are very few league pros that can offer his striking ability, let alone the option to open the bowling too!
