Sachin Jayawardena is a promising batting all-rounder playing for Bloomfield Cricket and Athletic Club in Sri Lanka’s Premier Trophy (first-class cricket).

A genuine all-rounder, Jayawardena bats in the top-order and bowls quality left-arm spin. After dominating for Wesley College and Bloomfield’s Under-23 side, he was rewarded with his first-class debut in March 2014 and has since played over 40 matches across the three formats.

Leading into the 2018/19 season, his record failed to justify his undoubted talent, with only 1 first-class and 2 List-A fifties alongside 3 wickets (his best bowling figures of 3-24).

However, last season, he turned this around swiftly, with 3 first-class centuries, namely 109* (132 balls) against Panadura, 116 (167 balls) against Sri Lanka Air Force and 165 (331 balls) against Police Sports Club, respectively.

Jayawardena finished the season as the second-leading run-scorer on the Provincial (Tier B) run charts (661 runs at 60.09), narrowly behind fellow CricX star Damith Perera.

These performances reaffirm his ability that saw him named the Sri Lanka Under-19 squad in 2014 before winning the Sri Lanka U23 best all-rounder for the 2015/16 season, whilst skippering Bloomfield.

In a view to continuing his development, Jayawardena spent the 2019 season plying his trade abroad for Drakes Huddersfield side Barkisland. He impressed with both bat and ball, hitting 751 runs at 35.76 and taking 39 wickets at 22.28. The talented all-rounder is now eager to return, once again, for the 2020 season.
