Mohammed is a highly regarded,up and coming bowler currently playing first class cricket in Sri Lanka for Burgher Recreation CC. A tall and well built right-arm fast bowler originally from Kandy, he made his first class debut for Colts CC in the 2016/17 summer off the back of an outstanding U23 T20 tournament for Colts CC. At said U23 T20 tournament, Mohamed collected 11 wickets @ 11.11, showing an exceptional prowess in the shorter formats. His First class career was slow to take off and only made 7 appearances for Colts over his first 2 seasons in the Professional arena.

For the 2017-18 season, he moved Burgher Recreation Club CC, getting off to a flyer, taking 5-44 in the opening match of the first class season against Badureliya CC, then taking a superb 6-86 against Negombo CC a week later.

He has been a member of the Sri Lankan Fast bowling squad and on his day is capable of bowling 140kmph. He is also a useful lower order batsman and showed this last season whilst playing for Colts CC scoring a useful 65 against Bloomfield CC. He is looking to showcase his talents next season in the UK and would represent a great signing for anyone looking for a pace bowling with a bright future.
