Dilum Sudeera is a highly-rated and very talented spin bowling allrounder from Karandeniya in the South west of Sri Lanka, between Galle & Colombo. Dilum was schooled at the renowned Richmond College, Galle and was a standout performer right throughout the age groups for Dambulla and more recently the Sinhalese Sports Club U23. A right-handed middle order batsman, Dilum’s main weapon is his Slow Left-arm Orthodox Spin.

Having dominated through the age groups, Dilum was selected to represent Sri Lanka at the 2020 ICC U19 World Cup in South Africa, collecting 6 wickets in 4 games. In total, he represented Sri Lanka U19 on 15 occasions, picking up 25 wickets @ 20.32. His performances with the bat were not as he would have liked at the World Cup but he’d scored plenty of runs in the lead up to his selection with 914 runs @ 27.70 in the U19 2-day competition.

Handed his 1st First Class cap for Galle CC in 2019, he scored an impressive 54 (80) and 33* (30) in his first Professional outing to go with 3 wickets on debut. A switch in 2020 has seen Dilum join Saracens Sports Club for the Premier Tournament and Sinhalese U23 for their early season competition.

In summer 2021, Dilum joined Frankton CC in the Shropshire Premier Division and whilst the team/his batting performances were not as successful as we’d have all hoped for, his performance with the ball was exceptional, bagging 48 wickets @ 11.13 with a best of 7-18.

A young talent with a very bright future indeed, Dilum will be an excellent pick up for any UK club next summer that seeks a Left-arm Orthodox spinner that is more than capable of contributing with the bat.
