Chathuru Randunu – LH/Bat & LA/Spin
Chatura Randunu is one of the best left arm spinners in Sri Lanka he has 78 1st class games under his belt and has claimed well over 400 wickets across the 3 formats at just 24 each, a remarkable achievement of consistency over the years. in addition Chatura was selected for the Sri Lanka A side in February of 2014 and played against the England Lions Touring Team he took 2-44 off 16 economical overs but his two victims were no less than Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow he then backed that up by compiling a useful 20 lower down the order to take the Sri Lankans to within 25 of Englands total. Chaturas 1st class career has been a real success story and the only surprise is that it took the selectors so long to reward him as he had consistently been in the top 10 wicket takers in Sri Lankan domestic cricket. Chatura may be an outstanding bowler but his batting is also very decent he has 5 half centuries to his name the best a well made 86 against Chilaw Marians in 2018 and has several 30s and 40s the most recent being a quick 46 against Panadura towards the back end of last season and his 1st class batting average is a very creditable 15.24 which is well above average for a guy batting at number 9 and proof that he would be well able to contribute with the blade at League Level whilst also being a certainty to rack up heaps of wickets. Chatura came to the uk in 2015 to play in the Strong Surrey Championship and he excelled topping the wicket charts with 45 wickets at just 12.9 each. In addition Chathura has his ECB Level 2 badge and is a keen coach. Chatura is not looking for a high salary indeed he will be an absolute bargain and for any club wanting a bowling all rounder he will be a very desirable option.
