Rajinda Punchihewa was a late-starter to the domestic game – finally breaking into professional cricket in December 2019, whilst into his late-20s.

He made an immediate impression, and subsequently cemented his spot in the Kalutara Town side, across all formats.

A seamer known to bowl a heavy ball, his exclusion from domestic cricket was a surprise especially given Punchihewa was a member of Sri Lanka’s National Fast-Bowling Squad back in 2012/13. However, he has made up for lost time and is now looking for another big summer when domestic cricket resumes in 2021/22.

Whilst known for his pace bowling, Punchihewa is also a hard-hitting batter in the middle-lower order, who has produced some very useful innings in both first-class (37) and List A (27*) cricket.

The Sri Lankan bowling all-rounder is now playing his maiden UK stint for Slinfold (Sussex Cricket League) and aspires to secure an Australasian club for 2022/23, before another UK season in 2023.
