Profile

An accurate legspinner, and an improving late-order hitter, Seekkuge Prasanna has become one of several Sri Lanka spin options in limited-overs internationals. Quick through the air, and possessed of a good googly, Prasanna has largely been picked when the pitch is expected to take turn. He is prolific in domestic cricket, where he and Ajantha Mendis regularly run through teams on the spin-friendly Sri Lanka Army pitch at Panagoda. Prasanna has also recently begun to feature in foreign competitions, playing in the Bangladesh Premier League and for county side Northamptonshire, predominantly in the T20 Blast. Having worked his way into the Sri Lanka Army team in 2006 as a 21-year-old, Prasanna made an immediate impact, taking 3 for 23 in 10 overs on his domestic one-day debut against Lankan Cricket Club. He built an outstanding List A record over the next five years, picking up 73 wickets at 18.38 in 45 matches, and was selected in the Sri Lanka A team that toured England in 2011. When he took a six-wicket haul while opening the bowling against England Lions, the Sri Lankan selectors immediately took note - having him fly back home for the two final ODIs against Australian. He took 3 for 32 in his international debut.
