Bio

Known for his aggressive side towards his game, Asela Gunaratne is a middle order batsman with a layer of surprising shots under his sleeves. He bowls with a medium pace. He seized the opportunity where he replaced Angelo Mathews because of the latter’s injury, for the tour to Zimbabwe in November 2016. His selection was based on his consistent performances for Sri Lanka Army Sports Club, his domestic side in the premier league tournaments where he averaged over 50 for three years.

As soon as he entered the national game, he immediately made an impact in the longer format. He scored a half-century in his debut performance. He later followed it up with a century in the next game. He continued with his streak in the ODI series against South Africa and was captured in the limelight with a century at number six, becoming the first Sri Lankan to do so. His successive half-centuries against the Aussies in the T20I series helped the Islanders win the series. It also helped him bag an IPL contract with the Mumbai Indians for the 2017 season.
