An attacking left-hand and unorthodox wicketkeeper-batsman, Niroshan Dickwella arrived in first-class cricket already having built some hype through his stellar school cricket career. He won Sri Lanka's Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year award in 2012, having hit over 1000 runs in the previous season, and having led Trinity College to the national championship.

Since then, Dickwella has become Nondescripts Cricket Club's regular wicketkeeper across all competitions, thanks in part to Dinesh Chandimal's long absences from domestic cricket, due to his presence in the national team. Dickwella has been particularly impressive in across all formats in domestic cricket, and has been a fixture in the Sri Lanka A team. He made his Test debut as far back as July 2014 - at the age of 21 - but despite a sparkling 72 at SSC against a strong South Africa attack, did not hold his place for long.

He made another foray into international cricket in 2017, and on this occasion had some success with his impressive range of behind-the-wicket strokes, which include all manner of sweeps, scoops and ramp shots.
