Sudara Dakshina is an exciting left-arm spinner playing for Sri Lanka Navy in Tier B of Sri Lanka’s Provincial Tournament.

The tweaker broke into first-class cricket in 2016/17 and excelled taking 19 wickets at 14.10. He then backed-up his success with a further 29 wickets at 21.37 in 2017/18 to finish narrowly outside the top ten wicket-takers in the tournament.

Dakshina plays alongside fellow CricX client Dushan Hemantha who has starred for Alnmouth and Lesbury in the Northumberland and Tyneside Senior League in recent seasons.

He picked up two five-wicket hauls in first-class in 2017/18, namely 6-92 v Police SC and 8-80 v Galle CC, then took another 5fa on his List A debut against Negambo (5-28) in his next match.

Unfortunately for Dakshina, fellow CricX stable mates Dilanka Auwardt, and Savindu Peiris have taken leading roles with the ball for Navy in recent seasons. Therefore, Darkshina has been resigned to playing solitary matches during both the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.

Nevertheless, he remains involved with the Navy squad and hopes to secure more game time this summer, in a view to playing 3 more first-class matches to qualify for his International Sportsperson Visa visa.

The talented tweaker is seeking a UK return in 2022 following his stint with Bradford League club Methley in 2019 (29 wickets at 22.69).
