Rohan Jayasekera toured England in 1979 with the Sri Lankan team performing the dual role as a forceful batsman and reserve wicketkeeper to Stanley Jayasinghe. However, he did not play in the World Cup as Jayasinghe was preferred. Making his debut in Sri Lanka's inaugural one-day international on home soil against England, he kept wicket and scored 17 as Sri Lanka were defeated by six runs in a thrilling encounter. His sole Test came on the tour of Pakistan when he played as a specialist batsman at Lahore. Imran Khan routed Sri Lanka, taking 14 wickets, Jayasekera constituted two of those, bowled for 0 and 2. Not selected again, Jayasekera became another member of the exclusive one-Test club.
