A relatively unheard of batsman Lahiru Igalagamage has taken the domestic club cricket arena by storm as he finished the concluded Premier League as the leading run-maker.

A product of St. John’s College, Nugegoda, the 26-year old Igalagamage aggregated 1039 runs way ahead of the big guns to put himself on course for a passage into the Sri Lanka team. He has a best of 290 while batting for the Nondescripts Cricket Club (NCC). The nearest to challenge him was Dinesh Chandimal with an aggregate of 1027 runs while representing the civilian Army Sports Club and Bhanuka Rajapaksa from the Burgher Recreation Club (BRC) with 835 runs.

Another lesser known player who has hammered his way into contention is the former St. Peter’s College wicket-keeper batsman Lahiru Milantha who cracked three centuries while playing for Badureliya Cricket Club that includes a career-best 252.
