Primosh is a high quality left-handed top order Batsman and a quality right-arm off spinner. A highly-rated youngster, he represented Sri Lanka at age group level and featured in the national U23 tournament annually from the age of 17 for Moors Sports Club whom he has spent most of his professional career representing with the exception of brief stints with Nondescripts & Bloomfield.

Seen more as a longer format player in the professional game, he made his first class debut at a 19 year old against Bloomfield CC but it took until 2014 to establish himself as a first choice regular in First Class Cricket. In summer 2014/15, he struck 677 runs @ 39.82, with a best of 166 and a further 5 half centuries during the season.

Having had his first UK summer in 2018, joining Ribblesdale Wanderers CC in the Ribblesdale League, Primosh struck 963 runs @ 41.87 and helped himself to 73 wickets @ 12.77 with a best of 6-47. Considering his spin is used sparingly in First Class, his return was very impressive indeed.

He returned in 2019, joining ECB Lincs Premier League side, Louth CC. Again his return with the bat was excellent, scoring 733 runs @ 66.64 and chipping in with 19 wickets @ 28.11. It was his contributions with coaching off the field that left just as much of a lasting impression, working closely with local schools in term. Primosh joined Millom CC for the 2021 season and was again exccellent, 775 runs @ 45.59 with a best of 119* and 30 wickets @ 21.57 with a best of 3-17.

Primosh returned to Millom CC in 2022 and was again outstanding, scoring 801 runs @ 44.50 and chipping in with an improved 42 wickets @ 14.48 with a best of 6-35.

A quality all-rounder, Primosh will be a great signing for a UK club seeking a top order batsman that is a genuine spin-bowling option for next summer.
