Profile

A left-hand batsman and wicketkeeper, Damitha Hunukumbura has played plenty of first-class cricket, but hasn't made the leap to play international cricket for Sri Lanka yet. At a height of 6'1", Hunukumbura is among the taller wicketkeepers to play at this level, but he hasn't done badly. He has first-class hundreds, and one-day and Twenty20 fifties to his credit, but higher honours have eluded him despite a long career.
