A sharp right-arm seamer who specialises in moving the ball away from the right-handers, Vikum Sanjaya caught the national selectors' notice in December 2016 with figures of 7 for 102 in a first-class match for Burgher Recreation Club.
He had not, however, been especially effective in domestic cricket before his national call-up for the tour of South Africa. In 17 first-class matches, he had taken 38 wickets at an average of 33.78, and he had only played 13 List A games. Nevertheless, the selectors said they saw potential in him - a sentiment echoed by coaches, who had picked him out and trained him in the fast bowling academy since soon after Sanjaya left school.
Sanjaya made his first-class debut in 2012 for Colombo Cricket Club, but has also played for Badureliya Sports Club and Saracens Sports Club, in addition to BRC.

Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
