TEAMS

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.
