Profile

An attacking left-hand wicketkeeper-batsman, Niroshan Dickwella arrived in first-class cricket already having built some hype, in a stellar school cricket career. He won Sri Lanka's Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year award in 2012, having hit over 1000 runs in the previous season, and having led Trinity College to the national championship. Dickwella has become Nondescripts Cricket Club's regular wicketkeeper across all competitions, thanks in part to Dinesh Chandimal's long absences from domestic cricket, due to his presence in the national team. Since graduating to senior cricket, he has been particularly impressive in limited-overs cricket, hitting a memorable 104 off 91 balls in the final of the Inter-Provincial One-Day Tournament in 2013. Dickwella has also been a fixture in the Sri Lanka A team since 2013, and was called back from an A tour in England in July 2014, to take Chandimal's place in the national squad.
