Supeshala Jayathilake – Sri Lanka

Supe is an excellent batting all rounder, a strong top order bat with a good range of shots and a very adept left arm spinner who gives the ball a proper rip. After starting his career with the Sri Lankan Navy 1st class side he now plays for Ragama one of the top sides in the SL Domestic competition. With the bat Supe averages 30 in 1st class cricket with a high score of 114 and 1 other century and 10 0ther scores over 50 to boot. As a bowler Supe has been used sporadically  in 1st class cricket but regularly in the shorter formats averaging 16 in T20s and 18 in the 50 over games showing exactly what a club can expect from a genuine all rounder. Supe has also proven himself in UK Conditions playing 2 years for Cleator C.C. (2019 & 2021) scoring a total of 1100 runs in 30 innings averaging an excellent 43.50 he also chipped in with 20 wickets despite a finger injury ruling him out for a long period during his stay. Supe has his ECB L2 coaching badge and is a keen coach he runs coaching clinics back home in Sri Lanka and would be a very good choice for the player coach role. All in all a terrific choice at a bargain price. Check the links below.
