Niroshan Dickwella Bio

Niroshan Dickwella, born as Dickwella Patabendige Dilantha Niroshan Dickwella, is a talented cricket player from Sri Lanka. Known for his attacking left-handed batting style and unorthodox wicketkeeping skills, Dickwella has made a mark in the world of cricket with his exceptional talent and passion for the game.

Dickwella’s journey in cricket began with an impressive school cricket career, where he gained recognition for his outstanding performance. In 2012, he was honored with Sri Lanka’s Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year award after scoring over 1000 runs in the previous season and leading Trinity College to the national championship. This early success laid a strong foundation for his future endeavors in the sport.

Having caught the attention of cricket enthusiasts, Dickwella continued to soar in the cricketing world. He became the regular wicketkeeper for Nondescripts Cricket Club across all formats, filling in the shoes of Dinesh Chandimal during his absence from domestic cricket due to his representation of the national team. With consistent and outstanding performances, Dickwella made his presence felt in domestic cricket and became a valuable asset for the Sri Lanka A team.

Dickwella’s Test debut came in July 2014, when he was just 21 years old. Despite his young age, he exhibited his exceptional talent by scoring a brilliant 72 against a formidable South Africa attack at the SSC. However, maintaining a spot in the national team proved challenging for Dickwella at that time, and he was unable to solidify his position.

Undeterred by the setback, Dickwella made a comeback in international cricket in 2017. This time, he showcased his versatility and skill with an impressive range of behind-the-wicket strokes. His repertoire included various sweeps, scoops, and ramp shots, which amazed spectators and opponents alike. This unique style of play added a thrilling and entertaining element to his performances, making him a force to be reckoned with.

Throughout his cricketing career, Dickwella has achieved notable milestones and proven his worth on the field. His statistics bear witness to his talent and dedication to the sport.

Off the field, Dickwella is known for his humble and down-to-earth nature. Despite his growing fame, he remains grounded and appreciative of the opportunities that cricket has provided him.
