An aggressive left handed opening batsman and an irregular medium pacer, Danushka Gunathilaka is presently looked out as an option for the top-order. His received his major break during the 'A' series to New Zealand that he was a part of in the 2015 season. With huge scores, the selectors rewarded him a place in the national squad against the West Indies during the end of the year. He had to suffer because of the drug problem. Unfortunately injuries plagued his path to success and he missed out his spots for few crucial games.
He began his career by playing at the under-19s level in the 2010 U-19 World Cup and eventually covered it up with a few solid years in the domestic circuit for Colombo Cricket Club. With an exclusive volatile approach to cricket with shots all around the field, he remains a crucial option at the top of the order.
