Bio

He is another struggle story in the world of Sri Lanka cricket. His father was a carpenter from Moratuwa. Dananjaya completed the usual studies from Panadura Mahanama Navodya Vidyalaya, Panadura. He married his partner Nethalie Tekshini on 22 August 2017. The marriage took place only two days before his recall to the ODI team for second ODI against India. The wedding was a low-key affair with only Rangana Herath and Ajantha Mendis as witnesses.

The uncertainty at Sri Lankan cricket team meant that Dhananjaya couldn’t fix a spot in the national team. Even after playing a long time in the T20Is, he found himself out of favor with the national selectors for four long years. It took time for the selectors to recall him to national team during the home season of 2017. As soon as he got the opportunity, he made an immediate impact, grabbing career-best figures of four for 47 against the visiting Zimbabweans. One cannot call this an one-off achievement. And then just two days after his marriage, he claimed six for 54 against India, thereby finalizing his place for the immediate future.
