Lasith Abeyratne is an accomplished batter who was Colombo's chief run-getter during the 2019/20 Premier Tournament.

The diminutive batter topped CCC's run charts and was the 4h leading run-scorer in Sri Lanka's top flight (Tier A) first-class competition. He opened his 2019/20 campaign with a brilliant 153 - his 10th first-class century - and proceeded to rack up a season tally of 788 runs at 56.28.

The former CCC wicket-keeper relinquished the gloves a few years ago to focus on his batting and his decision has resulted in a deluge of runs, particularly in red-ball cricket where he has clocked up 4,821 runs at 36.80 since his debut as a teenager during the 2010/11 season.

Abeyratne, who comes highly recommended plays alongside 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 during his 200 plus domestic matches since his debut back in May 2011. Over the past few 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), 565 runs at 35.31 (2018/19), and 788 runs at 56.28 (2019/20). 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, one of which he converted into a double (234*).

The run machine is unavailable for the 2023 season but will consider the following season.
