Lasith Abeyratne is an accomplished batsman who was Colombo's chief run-getter during last season's Premier Tournament (2019/20).

The diminutive batsman topped CCC's run-charts and was the 11th 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 451 runs at 50.11.

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 4,344 runs at 36.50 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 during his 150 plus domestic matches since his debut back in May 2011. Over the past four 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 451 runs at 50.11 (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 hasn’t played abroad previously, so has targeted a season playing UK league cricket in 2021. A fantastic overseas option, for any club next summer.
