Lasith Abeyratne is an accomplished batsman wicket-keeper playing for the star-studded Colombo Cricket Club in Sri Lankan first-class (Premier Tournament – Tier A) cricket. The diminutive gloveman has excelled in domestic cricket, since his debut as a teenager during the 2010/11 season.

Abeyratne, who comes recommended by fellow CricX client Ron Chandraguptha, who he plays alongside at CCC, with the likes of international players, Lakshan Rangika, Ashan Priyanjan, Dilshan Munaweera, Sachith Pathirana, and Wanindu Hasaranga, has also featured for the Sri Lankan Under-19s (2010-12) and Emerging Players (2015). Abeyratne played against the touring England Under-19s early in 2011, in a side that featured the likes of Daniel Bell-Drummond, Tymal Mills and Ben Foakes.

Abeyratne has already forged an excellent career and is on the verge of 150 domestic matches since his debut back in May 2011. To date, Abeyratne has scored 9 centuries, including a highest score of 234* amongst 3,893 runs at 35.39 heading into the 2020 first-class competition.

An often explosive batsman, Abeyratne has also enjoyed success in white-ball cricket, where he has represented Colombo District in Sri Lanka’s List-A tournament in recent years.

Over the past three seasons, Abeyratne has pushed himself onto the national radar courtesy of 401 runs at 30.84 (2016/17), 707 runs at 50.50 (2017/18), and 565 runs at 35.31 (2018/19).

His 2017/18 season was an incredibly prolific one for Abeyratne, as he finished amongst leading run-scorers in the Tier A first-class competition to include 3 centuries.

The talented keeper/bat hasn’t played abroad previously, so has targeted a season playing UK league cricket in 2020. A fantastic overseas option, for any club next summer.
