One of the brightest young batting talents in Sri Lanka, Angelo Perera was named in Sri Lanka's ODI squad for the home series against Bangladesh in March 2013 after a prolific domestic limited-overs season for Nondescripts Cricket Club. A powerful middle-order batsman with an arsenal of strokes and no lack of audacity, Perera has carved out an impressive List-A record over five years, and his first-class numbers are even better.
A product of St. Peter's College in Colombo, Perera led his school side in his senior year, and also featured in Sri Lanka's Under-19 teams from 2007 to 2009. His domestic career has been followed keenly for several years now and it seems a case of when he will be granted an extended run in the national team, rather than if.
