Roshan Jayatissa is one of the most consistent spinners in Sri Lankan domestic cricket – with one of the best domestic records to match.

The off-spinner has taken 253 wickets at 22.45 since his first-class debut in October 2009. His tally includes 14 five-wicket bags and 3 ten-wicket hauls. He has also excelled in white-ball cricket, averaging an incredible 17.80 and 19.54 in List-A and Twenty20 respectively.

Jayatissa is widely recognised as one of Sri Lanka’s best, non-international, off-spinners. However, as he proved with his hundred against KTC (Feb 2020), he's no one-trick pony - he can certainly bat. Alongside his maiden hundred, he can boast 6 further half-centuries, including 2 in succession following his ton.

The experienced campaigner is a high-class performer, who has also showcased his all-around skills in UK league cricket over the past five seasons.

Playing in Division 1 of the Durham Cricket League for Tudhoe, Jayatissa produced impressive numbers and several Cup titles, for the club. In 2017-18, he scored 2,457 runs at 42.36 (4x100s, 19x50s) and took 131 wickets at 13.11 (4x5w) in league/cup cricket.

In 2019, he returned, this time to play in the first division of the WDCU (Western District Cricket Union) for Kelburne where he excelled again, particularly with the ball (21 wickets at 13.24).

Over the past two seasons (2021-22) he continued to dominate in the Kent League for Linden Park where he racked up 2,177 runs at 44.43 (7x100s, 10x50s) and 81 wickets at 21.98 (2x5w) across all formats for the club.

Jayatissa is, without a doubt, one of the most proven professionals on the circuit who is now seeking pastures new for the 2023 season.
