In his first-class debut playing for a Sri Lankan board XI against Zimbabwe, Amerasinghe captured captured 10 for 130. Like many Sri Lankan players of the time he was thrust into the Test team shortly afterwards, making his debut at Kandy against the touring New Zealand team in 1983/84. Amerasinghe made a meritorious debut. Arriving at the crease with Sri Lanka 155 for 9, he proceeded to add 60 runs with Vinod John, then a record tenth-wicket stand for Sri Lanka. Amerasinghe top scored with 34. However, his left-arm orthodox spin was used sparingly, and he bowled only 20 overs in the whole Test. Amerasinghe played in the following Test at Colombo, his final appearance, taking a career-best 2 for 73 from 30 tidy overs.
