Dulanjala Mendis is another one to look out for from Baduraliya SC. Having made his debut back in 2009 the left arm orthodox bowler brings a considerable amount of experience into the Baduraliya setup. With a bowling average of 21.37 in first class cricket and 15.48 in list A cricket he will no doubt be one of the key wicket takers for the club from the south.
New and Young Blood
Kasun Rajitha is one of the more promising youngsters in the squad this season. Having represented Sri Lanka under 19s and more recently Sri Lanka A on their tour of New Zealand Rajitha has maintained a regular spot in the Baduraliya team since making his debut last season. Although still relatively inexperienced at this level his performances, particularly in the three day games have been exciting.
Sri Lanka under 19 representative and former Josephian skipper Pathum Madushanka is another exciting find for Baduraliya SC. The young batter and occasional off spinner will be keen to get in as many games as possible and establish a permanent spot for himself in the club’s starting XI.
A few more young Josephians are in the mix this season at Baduraliya SC including former College skippers Roscoe Thattil and Sachin Hewawasam as well as top order batsman Yashan Samarasinghe, all at the beginnings of their domestic careers.
