Lahiru Diyantha is a stand-out left-arm spinner for Police Cricket Club in Sri Lankan domestic cricket.

An experienced campaigner, Diyantha broke into professional cricket a decade ago (2012) playing 4 matches across the three formats for Sri Lanka Navy Sports Club.

He would wait 8 years before his next domestic outing, returning to the fold for his current side Police Sports Club during the 2019/20 season. He excelled, particularly in first-class cricket bagging 22 wickets at 24.31. COVID struck, jeopardising his progress.

Nevertheless, the return of domestic cricket has seen Diyantha continue his dominance, averaging 12.25 (2021/22), and 19.82 (2022) during the 50-over campaigns, plus 18 wickets at 34.33 in first-class cricket last summer.

In the form of his life, the Police star is seeking his first opportunity to play UK club cricket in 2023 and is someone that comes highly recommended by Police skipper, and long-term CricX legend Maduranga Zoysa.
