A busy middle-order batsman, packing a punch off the back foot, Ashan Priyanjan has been among the steady young risers in Sri Lankan cricket. Priyanjan captained Sri Lanka's under-19 team in the 2008 youth World Cup, and has since made himself a Sri Lanka A regular, through improving performances for Bloomfield, Tamil Union, and most recently, Ports Authority Cricket Club.
Priyanjan is powerful square of the wicket, and brings a fearlessness to the batting crease that has seen him launch regular counterattacks when the top order has failed - both with Sri Lanka A, and his club sides. He has also become a canny offspinner, capable of delivering tight, probing overs when relieving the frontline bowlers.
He struck a sparkling 74 on ODI debut against Pakistan, in the UAE, and has since shown more glimpses of bright promise for Sri Lanka. Priyanjan has become a regular member of the one-day squad, but competes for a middle-order position with several other players. He played in the side that won the Asia Cup in 2014, and also helped Sri Lanka defeat England in a bilateral series three months later.

Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
