Bit of history
The Sri Lanka Army Sports Club entered the first class arena during the 2006/07season and has never looked back since. They have produced national cricketers in Ajantha Mendis and Seekuge Prasanna while they have a couple of other players in the fringe at present.
Opening batsman Manjula de Zoysa is the skipper of the team. He is a reliable top-order batsman with loads of experience under his belt. Ajantha Mendis and Seekuge Prasanna will be key figures for Army once again while Mendis will be looking to prove his critics wrong by finding his lost rhythm and making a comeback in to the national set up. Prasanna had a decent run during the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier league and will be looking to make a statement during the 2015/16 season.
Shalika Karunanayake will be a key batsman for Army in the middle order. A man who showed a lot of potential early in his career with great all round abilities, he has drifted away from the national radar but his batting has been catching the limelight lately.
