Profile

One of Sri Lanka's most consistent domestic batsmen, rare is the year in which Roshen Silva does not average close to or above 50 in the Premier League Tournament. His challenge has been to stand out. Though often one of the best batsmen in any first-class season, Silva has rarely been the top-scorer, nor the batsman who appears most naturally gifted among the domestic lot. But eventually the piles of runs he had accrued began to pique the national selectors' interest.
