TEAMS

An accurate left-arm spinner for Ragama Cricket Club, Amila Aponso emerged as one of Sri Lanka's better finger-spinning prospects, after successful first-class seasons in 2015 and 2016. A graduate of St. Sebastian's College, Moratuwa, Aponso began his first-class career at Colts Cricket Club, but it was at Ragama that he rose to prominence. He claimed 31 first-class wickets at an average of 20.9 in the 2015 season, and was rewarded with a place in the Sri Lanka A squad to New Zealand, later that year.

In 2016, his domestic returns continued to improve. His 47 scalps at 20.97 placed him third on the wicket-takers' table. He was part of Sri Lanka's Development Squad to South Africa a few months later, and continued to impress, particularly in the four-day match against a South Africa Emerging XI in Potchefstroom, where he took 13 wickets for 207 runs. A few days later, Aponso was called up to Sri Lanka's ODI squad.
